Premiere: Create Your Own World With Geneva White's "Dreamcatcher"
Geneva White’s new “Dreamcatcher” track was, quite literally, inspired by a dreamcatcher, but the meaning goes far deeper than simple observation. Listen the new single once and you’ll be transported to a universe far beyond this one, one where you can create and control as you wish, inside of your dreams.
“We were just hanging out and recording a few vocal samples first to create a general vibe,” White says. “I’d been having vivid dreams that week, and I spotted a dreamcatcher hanging from one of the lofted beds in the apartment and so I wrote about what it would be like to ask the dreamcatcher to sift through my thoughts. Ultimately, the song is about being able to create your own world for a short period. Being able to control your own theatre through your dreams.”
Though the lyrics are somewhat dreamy (duh) and smooth, the beat serves up a perfect contrast: it’s snappy, speedy, and vibey by comparison. Alex & Alex, White’s producers on the track, can speak to its technical magic:
“We started off with a vocal bit that had a peaceful dreamy texture to it and kept building on that vibe. It all builds into a chorus that goes all out and feels like the increasingly loud thoughts you have while drifting off in a quiet room.”
