Young Dreams (NO)
This Norwegian collective from Bergen consist of at core Mattias Tellez (composer, raconteur, dreamer) and Rune Vanderskog (vocalist, harmonizer, eternal optimist) and is complemented by good friends who contribute lyrics, vocals and instrumentation. Young dreams started when Tellez decided to build a studio where people without much money could record their songs. Together with a few likeminded dreamers, he moved beyond his solo work and the foundations for Young Dreams were laid. The result is debut album Between Places, a vast, deep dive into symphonic pop, borrowing from classical composition as much as classic 60’s pop as much as textural electronic experimentation.
