See How – “Beautiful Dreamer”


“Beautiful Dreamer” is a versatile electro-pop delight from Bedfordshire-based producer See How. Gorgeous string-laden effervescence and intertwining vocal samples captivate from the get-go, emphasizing the project’s striking house-inspired stylistic form. A crisp vocal resonance, emitting a title-touting refrain, ushers in with seamless engrossment; the lushly confident vocals and bright underlying strings combine for a spine-chilling, replay-inducing charm throughout.

The track’s rhythmic escalations and vocal sample deftness leads a production inspired by house, in addition to Brit-pop a la “Bitter Sweet Symphony.” The initial stutter-y vocal samples and gradually building strings make for ample climactic pull, satiating fully into the refrain-fronted expanse thereafter. A rousing percussive build-up approaches the one-minute turn with charisma, with the effort’s remainder enamoring in its shimmering weightlessness and hooky endurance.

“Beautiful Dreamer is like the sound of sunrise, or the pull of the sea,” the artist explains. “Where [previous singles] Can’t Be Me was full of attitude, and Do It was full of energy, I wanted Beautiful Dreamer to showcase a different side to my sound – something bigger, more cinematic.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2023’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
