The song “Our Crazy Dream” came to Newcastle upon Tyne, UK singer-songwriter Simon Taylor in a dream during a period of personal suffering caused by mental health issues. In the dream, the legendary 1960’s singer-songwriter Tim Buckley sung a melody while performing on-stage that forms the basis of this song. Discover that the 22nd December in Formula Indie
On waking, Simon realised that he needed to capture this song and write lyrics to it immediately. Channelling his recent experiences, Simon wrote a song that foresees hope in a time of near-despair with lyrics that focus on the theme of following one’s passion against seemingly insurmountable odds. Musically, this song has a chamber- pop style reminiscent of mid-60’s era Beach Boys while also reflecting the folk-pop influence of 1960’s & ’70’s singer-songwriters such as Leonard Cohen. “Our Crazy Dream” will be released digitally on Friday 3rd December 2021.
