The room is completely black, the throng of people around me grow silent as we watch the black shadows of the stage. Slowly, the lights rise and I see three men walking out; they each take their places at their instruments. I hear the drums and I feel the beat shaking the floor. The bass starts to rattle my bones and the guitar pulls at my soul. Finally, the the singer’s voice carries through the venue and I know that Dreamers has begun their show.

DREAMERS is a three-piece rock band, made up of Nick Wold, lead vocals and guitar, Marc Nelson, bass and keyboards, and Jacob Lee Wick, drums. Though the members come from different corners of the country, the band came into fruition in Brooklyn, NY, and they currently reside in California. The band’s first single, “Wolves (You Got Me)”, was released in 2014, and got picked up almost immediately by Alt Nation on Sirius XM, and fell into regular rotation on the station for over a year after its release. This group of guys has been welcomed into the alt-rock scene with open arms by many bands and fans. This is a band that puts their fans and their music ahead of everything else in their lives, and they put their heart and soul into every show they play. Nick Wold, the band’s lead singer and guitarist, told The Growl, “My favorite thing about playing shows is connecting with the rad people out there in different crowds.  There are always new faces and some old friends, there is never a lack of surprises and every night is different.”

The band released their first full length album, This Album Does Not Exist, a little over a year ago, and they have been steadily growing in popularity throughout that time. The past year has been a whirlwind for the band, with touring, festivals, writing, and finding time to do anything outside of music. Wold said, “It’s really been a blur of constant work, but work on something we love with a passion. It’s been fun and amazing, but surreal at times. This summer we’ve been on planes a lot jumping around to festivals. We’ve had some surprises… seeing such huge crowds come out in cities we never expected. It’s different in some ways but still feels like the same old group of guys just always doing whatever we can to keep playing music. It gives us endless energy when we get energy back from so many good folks.”

The first official single off TADNE, “Sweet Disaster”, became popular very quickly after its release, and, when you listen to the song, it’s easy to understand why. While the song doesn’t necessarily sound deep or thoughtful when you first listen to it, the lyrics permeate. The song delves into the feelings of a night that you can’t forget. The line, “some nights feel like every night, this one feels brand new,” really captures the significance the song. This song has become one of people’s favorites to see live.

“Painkiller” has gotten a lot of attention from radio stations recently. The song itself has a unique sound to it; the strong drumming that is a link throughout all Dreamers’ music, beautiful guitar riffs, and deep bass are all layered behind passionate lyrics. Every element works together to build each other up. The song flows almost in waves, with emotions coming to a head, and gradually coming back down.

For the past couple years, Dreamers have been touring almost non-stop; they have been putting their music first and working as hard as they can to be successful as a band. Even so, they’re ready to tour again, Nick telling The Growl, “I’m excited to be back on the road with my dream bros! It’s been a little while because we’ve been in L.A. writing.  And I’m really excited to see The Maine and Night Riots work every night, they are some great live performers.”

The band’s hard work seems to be paying off, because their fan base is constantly growing and their music is getting played more and more all over the world. DREAMERS have nowhere to go but up, literally; Nick said over a year and a half ago that the band’s goal was to play the first sold out show on the surface of the moon, and reiterated that to The Growl, saying “That is still our main goal, and I think we’re getting closer. We always feel it’s right to aim high and keep climbing, even if we crash and burn, it will be a hell of a ride – and we’ll need somewhere to play when all our favorite cities are underwater.”

DREAMERS will be playing at The Complex (536 W 100 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84101), with Night Riots, supporting The Maine on October 27th. Make sure to go check them out!
