Power Of Dreams


Following on from their comeback double-A side release “America/Across the Shannon”, Irish indie-icons Power of Dreams tease with another cut “Hurricane” from their soon to be released album Ausländer. Frontman Craig Walker explained “the band have been really bowled over by the response to the new music,” says Walker, “and it has really warmed our hearts. It’s been a pleasure working with Ian Olney and Keith Walker again on this record and has reminded me of what great players they both are. As soon as we play together it sounds like a band. The same goes for producer Erik Alcock and also Ali Staton. We have been busily putting the finishing touches to the new album and we feel that “Hurricane” is a good indicator of what’s to come.”

The track is released on FIFA Records on Friday, Sept 25th and sees the band pulling together all their experiences and influences to create a track that continues the Power of Dreams legacy. The song is about the frustrations inherent in a tumultuous relationship, which is instantly recognisable to fans of Power of Dreams who have over the years come to love Walker’s lyrics; which often speak of the struggle between heart and mind. The song features infectious synths and a bouncing bassline, coupled with Craig’s unmistakable vocal which delivers without fault.

Despite heading in different musical directions, the band have returned over the years for the occasional live show and felt in 2020 it was time to return to the studio and record a new album which frontman Craig sees as the accompanying piece to their critically acclaimed debut ‘Immigrants, Emigrants and Me’. The band have announced two live shows (Pandemic Permitting) in April 2021 at the 100 Club in London and the Hare & Hounds in Birmingham.
