Pyzow! – “In My Dreams, You Win”


A grooving rocker from Pyzow!, “In My Dreams, You Win” exudes a throwback charisma in its expressive guitar licks and debonair vocal styling — reminiscent of Steely Dan’s versatility and musicianship. The artist describes the track as “about returning to a place and finding it changed. It’s about the long journey across the country, up a flight of stairs, across the cheek of someone you’re trying to reach. It’s about finding your place when those around you want to be alone.”

“I haven’t slept in years,” signals a particularly captivating second half. Mellow keys and lightly bustling rhythms excel into another catching vocal sequence, and then into the rousing title-touting hook. Thereafter, a magnetic guitar solo takes hold, traversing with melodic endurance into the track’s conclusion. “In My Dreams, You Win” is a hooky, energetic rock charmer from Pyzow!.

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