Ellis Redon – “Dreamers”


Flowing with nocturnal, swelling synths and a lush vocal presentation, “Dreamers” is a strongly memorable new track from Ellis Redon, a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from San Antonio, Texas. The synths and steady rhythmic backbone mesh beautifully with Redon’s haunting vocals, with some excellent infusion of sax around the 02:30 mark — capturing a sort of brass-infused darkness that Destroyer did so elegantly on Kaputt. “I can make it with your love,” his vocals quiver over the instrumentation, also reminding of Twin Peaks in the nocturnal, dreamy vibes. It’s an all-around effective effort, atmospherically and melodically, that certainly should put Redon on the map of many listeners.
