Weird Dreams returned this February with his first new music since his debut album Choreography (released on Tough Love in 2012). "It's been a long and short four years," says Doran Edwards.
"Weird Dreams never stopped for me, it just became private. The songwriting was a near constant. There's more music to share soon, but starting with "The Ladder" now feels right, as it was the first song of real difference, and remained unfinished for a few years while I obsessed over an image that I began to pursue as sound on the last Weird Dreams song before this one ("House of Secrets") - the reflections of water on a swimming pool ceiling at night. For reasons that are still unclear, this imagined image of light and water moved me in a desperate time, distracting from what felt like the rest of the world falling away."
