Wild Arrows share “Breathe Through” off upcoming album “Dreamlike Dream” set for release May 12

Brooklyn-band Wild Arrows are happy to share a new single, “Breath Through,” off their forthcoming album Dreamlike Dream.  The band’s Mike Law states “‘Breathe Through’ is the track on the album that most translates to the energy the band plays with live.  It’s also the bending, warped sound of the guitar put through every outboard delay effect in the studio, it’s also, also, the type of sound I’ll hopefully hear when I’m dying.  It’s also, also, also, a good song”

LISTEN to “Breathe Through”

Dreamlike Dream will be released on Friday, May 12 and Wild Arrows will be playing Brooklyn’s Sunnyvale the night before, May 11, for a record release party.

Dreamlike Dream is the follow up to Wild Arrow’s 2014 debut album Tell Everyone  which the Village Voice called “an inherently dark record hiding behind gorgeous synth lines.”  Despite the title of their most recent single “Dark Me,” Dreamlike Dream is the sound of a band with a new lease on life –   the darkness of their debut has given way to light.  Blackbook Magazine called the first single a masterstroke of Teutonic synth-pop that recalls the likes of Kraftwerk and Ultravox” and Impose labeled the song a “glittery synth track…which boasts a melancholic tone in the vocals and lyrics, with a gorgeous and stark contrast in the instrumentals.”

Wild Arrow’s singer and main songwriter Mike Law wrote and recorded Dreamlike Dream as his first conclusive collection of songs since Hurricane Sandy destroyed his Brooklyn recording studio in 2012.  Working from a finally rebuilt studio, The Civil Defense, Law was able to fully explore his own songs with bizarre old reverbs, delays, reasonable microphones and speakers to hear what was happening.  Holding up in the studio for the better part of a year with main collaborator singer and synth player Yasmin Reshamwala the two tracked twenty five songs trying to find the right combination for the album.  The band used a combination of electronic drums and guest drummers (Alan Cage/Quicksand) on the album but now Brandon Collins is on board for the live show.
