Before catching anyone’s attention with a few rough demos posted on their Myspace page, Lucy Dreams turned heads when they played their first show opening for Abby Go Go at 529 back in December. The unassuming four-piece made-up of Decatur High students Lloyd Wingard (guitar, vocals), Jacob Armando (drums), Graham Tavel (bass) and Dani Lyman (keyboard/vocals) took the stage and unleashed a wall of slurred pop hooks, warped melodies and distortion. They left such an impression that they were later asked to play the opening slot for Deerhunter and Black Lips’ show the night that Eyedrum closed down its 290 MLK location.
That same night that the group changed its name to Lucy Dreams, a new moniker that seems slightly less juvenile when the group explains that it’s a reference to Tavel’s white pit bull that was sleeping on a nearby sofa when they were brainstorming for something better than Buffalo Buffalo.
The group has a six-song, self-released EP, titled Going Postal due out April 1.
Here’s a sneak peak at what the group has in store, called “Realize.” This is the first song to show Lyman taking the reins on lead vocals, and the first time Wingard has made a concerted stab at writing lyrics. Many of their songs thus far have been the product of a stream-of-consciousness writing style, and this one resonates with primitive dream-pop sounds, but there's something a little more sophisticated hiding underneath all of that noise. …And how about that tremolo bar?
