Austin is one of the hottest cities for emerging rock bands. Daniel Eyes & The Vibes hope to continue that trend. With their debut EP on the way, we're excited to premiere the title track in the form of "Sweet Dreaming." Featuring a slow build with a dreamy melody (so it's not just a clever title) before catapulting into a brooding, frenetic rocker that kills it in a live setting, the song is a sign of big things to come from the band.
"'Sweet Dreaming' is a song that everyone can relate to. We all have hopes for the future," Eyes says of the song "Several years ago I had my car packed up, all my possessions jammed to the brim, ready to leave Austin and move back to NY. All I wanted was for music to fulfill me and my dreams.
"I was crashing at a friend's place and ended up moving in. Shortly thereafter, things started to turn around for me and the band came together. The song is somewhat of a prayer to the gatekeepers of all dreams. I think they're starting to open them up for us.”
Daniel Eyes & The Vibes' Sweet Dreaming EP will be released this Friday.
