The Kerosene Hours – “You Were In My Dreams Last Night”


“You Were In My Dreams Last Night” is a gripping track released today from The Kerosene Hours, the project of Los Angeles native Aaron Silverstein featured this past October for “Purple Heart.” “You Were In My Dreams Last Night” also flaunts an eerily unique soundscape that consumes with vigor. Hypnotic percussion and dark, driving bass combines with a quivering “you were in my dreams last night,” vocal cue for a gripping sound steeped in elements of rock and post-punk. This project sounds definitively fit for nighttime roaming, and this release affirms that with a thoroughly successful aesthetic. Fans of dark, murky post-punk and brooding rock are likely to be delighted.

Regarding the track, Silverstein writes: “Frightening, consensual, dark, passionate, full of life, and unlike anything else, this is a song dedicated to the less savory images that spin around in our heads and the comforting fantasy that maybe the one we love wants it darker than we do.”

“You Were In My Dreams Last Night” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Post-Punk.
