INVSN releases the newest track for “I Dreamt Music,” a post-punk gem for the band’s forthcoming LP, The Beautiful Stories.
The song’s cadenced groove and dark tones is the perfect balance to the underlying message concerning consumerism and politics. Frontman Dennis Lyxzén is no stranger to incorporating political themes into his work, from his days fronting Refused to (international) Noise Conspiracy to INVSN.
Lyxzén shares his thoughts on how music is being exploited these days.“ Music always meant more to me then just entertainment. It has had a profound impact on everything that I am as a person and I see music as art and art as life. We live in a world devoid of meaning where we serve the lowest common denominator at all times. Where politics as an idea has failed us and where art is being reduced to consumerism and clickbait.”
I wanted to write about the longing for resistance to the cultural/political/musical landscape that holds us imprisoned. I wanted to write about the naive, romantic and pretentious notion that music and art should be about ideas that can change and transform and maybe even be the beacon of hope in these dismal times.”
“I Dreamt Music” serves as the fifth track for the band’s sophomore album The Beautiful Stories, set to be released June 9th via Dine Alone Records.
