Brisbane trio Dream Dali have today shared their new single, Thinking Insane, alongside the announcement of their debut EP Life In Legato, due out next month! To celebrate the release, Dream Dali's Aaron Shanahan has curated an exclusive playlist of essential tracks for MILKY.
HALLOGALLO - NEU!
A must for German psych. It’s a ten minute sonic journey that creates a trance like state. Best heard driving.
ATMOSPHERE - JOY DIVISION
So much emotion and despair conveyed in a very simple instrumentation. Joy Division painted an amazing world that defined music to come.
ПАЧКА СИГАРЕТ - KINO -
I was shown Kino during my time in Berlin by a friend and instantly fell in love with the androgynous vocals, 80s drums and guitars. There’s lots to check out.
THE ONE TO WAIT - CCFX
Great dreamy and hypnotic music with a blend of late 80’s/early 90’s and amazing vocal performance.
THE GREAT CURVE - TALKING HEADS
I love how this album is built on loops and creating dynamics to make it a whole song. Produced with Brian Eno it’s an amazing feat in sonics and rhythm. Look out for the chaotic chorus guitar.
FASCINATION STREET - THE CURE
This whole album is amazing with its layers and lush dream-like instrumentation.
WHEN THE MUSIC’S OVER - THE DOORS -
An eruption of emotion and ahead of its time, this song is trance like that will pull you in and take you on a journey.
VENUS IN FURS -THE VELVET UNDERGROUND -
Droning and hypnotic, this song is very influential on our sound.
BLUE JAY WAY - THE BEATLES -
Every time I revisit The Beatles I’ll find a new song and Blue Jay Way such a great find. A George Harrison song that seamlessly blurs into different tempos.
LET HER BE - DREAM DALI
Our latest single that I would say is influenced by all the above songs.
