The future of electro-pop is here, and it exists in Rhode Island-based duo, DR3AM EATERChris Cooney and Zach Rego began forming the unique and mesmerizing tones that envelope their music in 2013, and they are better known as the frontman and drummer respectively of indie rock band, Fly Kite Canvas.

Gigging around New England since their days as college friends, they previously joined the lineup at Fete Music Festival and have performed on The Rhode Show.

Let’s be real, new music is thrown around everywhere these days, and you’re hard-pressed not to find a semi-talented indie band floating around your state. So what makes DR3AM EATER different? Short of listening to their distinctive and evocative melodies, it’s hard to put your finger on why you will like this up and coming talent, but I can tell you this: they are as accomplished in the dance/electronic sound as Owl City (one of their biggest influences), carry a vocal depth reminiscent of Coldplay, and somehow integrate this into insatiable and catchy hooks that make them stand out in an ever competitive industry.

Dropping their debut EP, We Are No Longer the Future, early in 2014, their first musical offering is eclectic and authentic. The sincerity behind the lyrics and stories of life and love is poetic and memorable, and on hearing the balance between the synth and the strong vocals, you feel as though you have been catapulted into a beautiful cosmos of new possibilities and extraordinary ideas. The best musicians create melodies that reflect our inner story, and within the five tracks found on DR3AM EATER’s EP, you are taken beyond this journey into something that is more fantastic that you could have hoped.

Pop enough to hook fans of 1975, and with electronic tones that will please you if you are partial to CHVRCHES, these guys bring together a rare and endearing mix of what is cool and what is authentic. Together, they take you on a musical journey that will stay in your head for days. If you’re after new music that showcases the best in upcoming musical talent and an appreciation for the electro-pop genre, check out DR3AM EATER. You’re welcome in advance.
