Canadian trio bring emotional honesty to their program of originals plus covers of Björk and Dirty Projectors.

In their second release for Songlines this Canadian trio (Evan Arntzen, tenor sax & clarinet; Josh Cole; bass; Dan Gaucher, drums) brings emotional honesty to their program of originals plus covers of Björk and Dirty Projectors. With youthful energy they balance introspective and more aggressive moods, developing often angular melodies into searching solos and giving the music a fine polyrhythmic lift. Addressing their peers, they honor the expressive freedom of jazz while combining it with the more direct access of popular song.

With this band it's definitely about saying something, setting up dialogues with each other and with their listeners. According to Josh Cole, 'The biggest thing you'll notice about New Dream is I think we're learning how to make 'bright' music that still has emotional depth. After the sombre tone of the last record we made a conscious effort to build a body of music that had more of a bright, 'aggressiveness' energy. I think also we're talking about very different subject matter than that of the last record. Looks Like It's Going to Snow was talking a lot about family, and loss, and was very introspective to the self. New Dream is very outward looking, dealing with the world in its current state.'
