With a summer already filled with festival appearances across the UK and winning a Kerrang! Award, Welsh post-hardcore upstarts Dream State have released a video for ‘New Waves’.
The song comes from the band’s recently released second EP, ‘Recovery’, and its accompanying video sees the band performing in a room surrounding by messages of hope and perseverance.
Speaking more about the song and its video, vocalist CJ Gilpin shared her thoughts.
“I wanted to show our fans, as I know a lot of them are going through their own troubles, that they have it in them to push through it. Sometimes we have to face our battles alone, but there is always going to be that inner voice that tells you that you’ve got this and that is the one you need to be listening to. We had so many amazing quotes sent through that any weak moment I had during the filming process, I had all these amazing, positive quotes surrounding me that brought a tear to my eye and it helped me perform better than I ever have. I hope our listeners can take from this and see that they have that strength in them too. They are surrounded by people just like them and they are not alone with it. Practice positive thinking.”
