Dreyma to wind up the weekend. I ran one of their concerts last year and had very high hopes for them, calling the band a work-in-progress. A year later, they’ve arrived. This duo are spellbinding and I am now convinced more than ever Cris and Mel will be around for a while.
So far, their touring has been confined pretty much to criss-crossing their home turf of Spain – however, there is one gig they are slated to play in the UK in Bristol in April, which should be something to pay attention to, as it will bring them to a wider (i.e. non-Spanish) audience. It would be nice if they came over to the States, even for some small club gigs, just to get a feel for how an American audience will respond. I will place bets that the response will be very positive.
In the two years they’ve been together they have grown leaps and bounds – they are investigating new musical territory; going a bit darker and more ethereal than they did in 2017. The Spanish Music Magazine Mondo Sonoro have been fans since the beginning and they hold nothing back in their praise for Dreyma:
Dreyma is a mix of intense friendship, wine, pizza, joy and hours of rehearsal. Cris (guitar, voice) and Mel (synths, electric drum and voice) share the passion for experimentation playing with sounds, images, emotions and rhythm. The results is dream core, electronic, pop, dark sometimes and ethereal.
They released their first EP in 2017 (edited by Space Waves and Imaginary Discs) and have been touring across Spain giving more than 20 gigs.
Now, they are touring to present their new conceptual project: Moonlight (Autumn 2018) which marries music, videos, illustration and the beauty and darkness of women emotional states.
Awarded by Radio 3(Spain national radio) as Emerging Artist 2017, 1st best EP 2018 and 3rd best EP 2017 by Mondo Sonoro.
If they can get that kind of reaction in the UK or the U.S. they have a good shot. Fingers crossed they do.
In the meantime, dive into this one head first.
