Freakender Presents: Dream Phases (USA) & Guests


Dream Phases started as the long ago bedroom recording project of songwriter Brandon Graham. After spending time developing the sound and being influenced by a host of home recording artists, Brandon passed his demos along to a few select friends, including his brother Shane and long time collaborator Kevin Baudouin. From there, Dream Phases was formed. Sharing a love ranging from noise pop to classic soul to dreamy folk, Dream Phases kicked off their live shows with a residency at Harvard & Stone in January 2017.

Shortly after formation, Dream Phases released their debut EP “Maybe Tomorrow,” produced by Graham himself and put out on Lolipop Records. Obscure Sound's Mike Mineo called the album, “swaying, hypnotic melodies of vintage psych-folk and rock with a contemporary pop charm.” The March release also marked their first tour including an official showcase at South by Southwest. July saw the band tour as part of the Mad Alchemy Caravan with a host of Los Angeles and San Francisco bands and, most recently, Dream Phases released their first two EP's as an LP on Nomad Eel Records followed by their first European tour. They are currently working on their first full-length record (due for a Fall 2019 release).

“An effortlessly winning piece of gently psychedelic power-pop that sounds like Teenage Fanclub turning into Apples In Stereo. (Teenagers In Stereo?) Anyway, what that means to you is: oohs, ahhs, hooks, riffs and unflagging confidence and charisma.” -Chris Ziegler, LA Record
