You know that extremely rare but amazing feeling that comes when you hit play on a new band’s song and you realize about five seconds in that it’s love at first listen? In this edition of Unsigned Spotlight, we’re sharing the gold we struck upon finding Milwaukee alt-rock powerhouses Dreamhouse. With their own brand of soaring alternative rock with punk and pop undertones, Dreamhouse leave you in no doubt they’re here to stay with a sound that’s both highly refined and clearly defined.
2017 saw the band follow up their excellent 2016 debut EP Bloom with a darker alt-rock version of The Little Mermaid‘s classic tune “Part of Your World” for Disney Goes Hardcore and an outstanding cover of Zedd and Alessia Cara‘s smash hit “Stay”. The latter in particular has been a major success for the band, amassing over 235,000 Spotify streams as of this writing. On both covers, Dreamhouse put their own guitar-filled spin on the song while retaining the elements that made the originals so loved in the first place.
Perhaps the best part of the covers’ success is they’re bringing that much more attention to the band’s original work, which is what truly makes them who they are. And if you like what you hear above and below then keep an eye out on their socials, because Dreamhouse have hinted that more new music is on the way very soon. And we have no doubt that for guitarist Derek Moffat, bassist Jared Block, drummer Michael Crisp and vocalist Brianna Jackson, the success they’ve already garnered is only the beginning, so hop on board now.
