For the last few months, a song has been bouncing from playlist to playlist around the world, an old-school victory of word-of-mouth recommendations taken flight in the age of streaming. Equal parts beauty and brutality, White Lies has so far racked up over a million plays on Spotify and well over 3.5million on YouTube, but for the song’s authors – South Wales’ Dream State, comprising vocalist CJ Gilpin, guitarists Aled Evans and Rhys Wilcox, bassist Danny Rayer and drummer Jamie Lee – it’s only the beginning.
Formed in late 2014 in South Wales, Dream State signed to UNFD a few hours before playing Reading Festival for the first time in 2017. In the interim they developed a fierce following around the UK and beyond; 2015’s sharp EP Consequences hinted at what they were capable of but when White Lies landed (recorded in summer 2016 with Jonny Renshaw) it showed what the band were really capable of.
Chapter and Verse
Chapter and Verse might seem like fresh faces to the scene, but with the debut EP 'The Wolves Back Home' they are about to smash through the alt-rock scene like they're veterans. From East London the four lads combine emotional melodies with endless musical dynamism. 'We're going to be that band you can't predict. We want to the one that you can't ignore.' says frontman Josh Carter. 'The Wolves Back Home' drops this summer and first single 'Shelf Life' is online now.
