SCATTER LIGHT explore modern romance on infectious psych-pop single  ‘DREAM ABOUT YOU’

Eora/Sydney up-and-comers Scatter Light have returned with their latest groove-filled, psych-pop single titled ‘Dream About You’, which is out today along with the announcement of a 6 date East Coast tour. 

Recorded at The Grove Studios, with mixing from Jack Garzonio (Cosmo’s Midnight, Brockhampton, Clews) and mastering from Steve Smart (Vance Joy, The Buoys, Tash Sultana) at Studio 301, ‘Dream About You’ builds consistently throughout its runtime, layering harmonies and melodies effortlessly across an incredibly catchy, persistent vocal melody. The dynamic rhythmic foundation set by the bass and drums keeps the track pulsing along, laying down the perfect backdrop for some dreamy 70s Soft Rock inspired guitars. Sonically, the track could be likened to the work of MGMT, Parcels and Tame Impala

The themes found on ‘Dream About You’ revolve around modern romance, and the mental barriers that often come along with a fresh relationship. 

“Dream About You explores the murkiness of modern relationships, whether being in one or desiring a new one, with the unsaid and speculated often becoming more of our perceived reality than what’s been spoken out loud. ” SCATTER LIGHT 

The Sydney-siders have continued to establish themselves within the local indie scene over the past few years, since the bands debut self-titled EP back in 2021. On the live circuit, the band have supported the likes of The Smith Street Band, Rum Jungle, The Rions, Crocodylus and The Moving Stills and more – and have seen extensive local radio overage, with a full rotation spot for their past single ‘Too Late Now’ on 2SER, and multiple spins through local tastemakers FBi. 

The bands ever-growing fan base will be able to hear ‘Dream About You’ on their upcoming tour run, with headline shows booked for Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, Melbourne and Wollongong

“The psychedelic harmonies, similar to the likings of MGMT and electrically explosive Black Sabbath-like guitar solos, seems to blend with utter ease. Scatter Light have completely solidified their rightful place in the Australian music renaissance.” (‘Leave Some Room Inside Your Mind’, 2021) 


“Scatter Light has got you covered with their new track ‘Too Late Now’. They’re a power trio that blends an array of 60s and 70s rock n roll influences with elements of modern psychedelia (think Tame Impala meets Psychedelic Porn Crumpets)”


‘Dream About You’ is out June Now
