Sam Caldwell – “dreams between”


“dreams between” is a memorable folk track from Los Angeles-based artist Sam Caldwell, paying homage to dreamers that embody courage in their pursuit of goals in the midst of obstacles. Further, the track explores how these ambitious pursuits can impact personal relationships, reflected in the “between me and you,” lyrical contemplations. Captivating vocals and string-laden infusions gradually intertwine as this refrain invigorates, concluding with a delightfully serene folk-forward quality.

Plucky guitars complement a resonating vocal presence, reminiscent of Bright Eyes in its emotive outpouring and lyrical references to fleeting time and emotional perception. Twangy guitar infusions delight alongside the acoustical drive, traversing seamlessly into affecting strums as the vocals continue their compelling escalation. “dreams between” is a stirring folk success from Sam Caldwell, described as delving “into the tensions that arise when personal ambitions clash with the needs of those we love.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
