Track Review: “Dreams” – Taken By Trees

“Dreams” is the first sneak peek at Victoria Bergsman’s (aka Taken by Trees) long-awaited follow up to 2009’s East of Eden. Other Worlds was written during a period of time the former Concretes member spend living in Hawaii. On her inspiration for the song (and album), she said:

“But the kind of dream I am referring to in this song is more like a sense of longing, a vision of a place where things are quiet, like floating in the ocean off of Hawaii. I find that very hard, feeling at peace, feeling that things are OK just as they are. In the past I always feared that calm would lead to laziness, but now I see it more as a strength, something I want to achieve. The album is very much about that … and about finding love. It’s a feel good album.”

“Dreams” mixes Bergsman’s catchy, upbeat pop sensibilities with an ethereal, serene feel. The song features her unique voice at the forefront. Stream or download the track below!
