Alt-rock quintet Dream State have announced their new EP, Recovery, which is set for release on May 18th via UNFD. Fans can pre-order the EP here: https://unfd.lnk.to/Recovery. The band has also released their brand new single “New Waves” today, following last night’s exclusive premiere on BBC Radio 1 with Annie Mac. Listen to “New Waves” here: https://youtu.be/8s2POYKsKsw.
“‘New Waves’ is about finally letting go of prodigal habits and ties and riding new waves, making fresh starts, releasing myself of the past and welcoming the future,” states vocalist CJ Gilpin on the new single. “Life is not easy for anyone but it’s good to remember how far you’ve come and no matter how dark life can appear, it can’t compete with the light that follows, so I put these new experiences and feelings I’ve been having into ‘New Waves’ and I couldn’t be happier with the results.”
