DREAM STATE ‘Twenty Letters’ (Official Music Video)
Welsh four-piece DREAM STATE have today revealed their brand new video for current single ‘Twenty Letters’, the final up front track to be released before their debut album ‘Primrose Path’ is out (October 18th on UNFD). Watch ‘Twenty Letters’ – HERE

From singer CJ Gilpin – “We loved planning the video for Twenty Letters, the idea was to conjure up an ethereal experience and display the emotion of it visually. We took some inspiration from A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the idea of other entities enticing and manipulating the way we feel, which can sometimes feel like the thoughts in your head are being pulled in various directions.”

“I took this concept and applied my own vision, having shadow selves represented by the dark angels who hold hope and light. The lights they hold represent the stream of positive thought that is always present and can be passed on, we all have something to offer. I face my shadow self towards the end and find healing in finding myself, I am able to take this out into the world and face bigger monsters and give light to the ones who have created bigger monsters of themselves.”

The single (out now) was last given its world exclusive first play with Annie Mac on Radio 1 and followed up as the Jack Saunders Midnight Drop. Listen back to the shows – Annie / Jack

A bit about DREAM STATE – The band won the 2018 Kerrang Award for Best British Breakthrough Artist (previous winners include Royal Blood & Neck Deep). The bands debut ‘Recovery’ EP (released in 2018) has over 20 million streams, with singles ‘New Waves’ and ‘In This Hell’ getting over 30 BBC Radio 1 plays each (with the latter debuting on Radio 1 Annie Mac). The bands first single taken from ‘Primrose Path’ released earlier this year, ‘Hand In Hand’, was an exclusive premiere with the Radio 1 Rock Show, saw the band record a Jack Saunders live Maida Vale session and live interview, AND get over 30 plays across Radio 1 shows. Last single ‘Primrose’ did one better and was both a Radio 1 Jack Saunders Midnight Drop, but also a Tune Of The Week in early August.

The band played Download Festival in summer 2018, Unify Gathering 2019 in Australia and supported The Amity Affliction across UK and Europe in autumn 2018, following other tours with Neck Deep (Europe), As it Is (UK) and Babymetal (Europe). Their UK headline tour earlier this year consisted of over 25 dates (including a sold out Underworld in London). This year, they have already played at Reading and Leeds, Burn It Down, Slam Dunk, Groezrock, Teddy Rocks, Handmade, Castlfest and 2000trees Festival.
