Scottish Alternative / Emo, husband and wife duo DreamKids, are set to release their new A/A Single titled, Metamorphosis on Friday 3rd December 2021.
Hailing from Kilmarnock, Dawn and Murray Baxter, who both previously performed and toured extensively with Twin Heart (2015 – 2019) and Mechanical Smile (2009 – 2014), launched DreamKids in February 2020 with the release of their debut single, While I Die. Just as the duo had reinvented themselves with their latest project DreamKids, Covid-19 took over which resulted in all gigging and touring plans postponed throughout 2020 and into 2021. Their five track self-titled EP was recorded and released (April 2021) during lockdown, and as venues were starting to open their doors and touring slowly started to materialise across the country with an almost sense of normality taking shape, the band announced that they are expecting their first child in February 2022, meaning that this A/A will be the last release for the foreseeable future.
Metamorphosis features two brand new tracks; It Must Be Nice and We Are Young. Working with Paul Winton (Vukovi, The LaFontaines, Midnight Ambulance) at North Road Studios for the first time, DreamKids leaned heavily on their 90’s Grunge influences while staying true to their alternative and delicate Emo-Pop–Rock style that has shone through on their previous releases.

Both A/A tracks reflect life’s transitional moments of body and mind in different ways.
It Must Be Nice is a powerful, emotive, and humbling track that inhabits a sense of failure and self-worthlessness that challenges human perception. We Are Young, the aggressor of the two tracks represents the journey of growing older and the pain that realisation provides, while still fighting for your inner youth. Both tracks were remixed by Ayrshire based producer Bluewave (Daniel Beattie), who has been receiving national coverage with his recent collaboration release, what i want with emerging artist Dio Zelus.
