Dreams by Beck
The artist: Beck is a Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, California. Perhaps best known for his award-winning 1993 song Loser, he’s a perennial figure in the alt-rock genre.
To the younger generation, he’s also known as ‘the guy who beat Beyonce at the 2015 Grammys’ (Kanye wasn’t happy).
Dreams is the first single off his forthcoming album, which is currently untitled. It’s a departure from his last album Morning Phase, which won him a Grammy but had a distinctly folky sound to it.
The vibe: Summery electric guitar riffs infused with retro rock beats.
Listen to it when: You want to have a good, old-fashioned jive to a great song – none of that techno nonsense.
