Dream Can’s music will make itself immediately at home in your heart and mind although their songs are packed with so many ideas, effects, and layers that it takes a half dozen listens to begin to sink in properly.The young Shanghai band met while studying at Shanghai’s Songjian University and were formed when singer and guitarist A Re, met drummer Qi Yu and bassist A Can and bonded over a shared interest in Japanese psych and Krautrock.

Dream Can’s sound is built of chaos, fractured time, the ultimate inability (or refusal) to disentangle dream from reality. But on their debut album Into Sparks, these talented young artists take the confusion of the age and turn it into something a few steps short of nihilism, something that makes the listener curious to keep going, to hear more. In the words of A Re, “It’s not fear, it’s the joy of being free on the edge of the darkness.”
