Colin Woltmann – “Saw You In A Dream”


A lushly meditative folk character compels on “Saw You In A Dream,” the newest single from Colin Woltmann. First catching our ears this past winter with the track “The In-Betweens,” the Elkmont, AL-based artist now provides its stellar follow-up with “Saw You In A Dream,” which precedes the upcoming EP, A Case Of the Times.

The title-referencing refrain is propelled by Woltmann’s gently absorbing tone, with the sense of escapism firmly conveyed amidst references to factory work; there’s a sense of smitten and momentary bliss conveyed, “as I saw you in the street.” An ensuing backing shimmer adds an atmospheric glow, as the vocals admit they’re so “lonesome without you near.” Electric guitar additions add invitingly in the second. A morosely impactful success that portrays the impacts of a relationship that has passed on by, “Saw You In A Dream” is another success from Colin Woltmann.

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