Whilst the pandemic was awful in a lot of ways for people, Gleneagle redefined their sound and spent their time writing tunes and recording their first full length album. The result was a morph of Oasis and early Springsteen, still nodding slightly to their original alternative country roots. ‘That Dream (Is Over)’ is their latest offering and comes in the form of an energetic new single. The track features drums that cut through the mix, reverberating energy throughout the track. Jangly guitars dance around the mix whilst an emotionally-penned vocal lays on top of it’s colourful foundations. The lyrics are well penned – emotional, raw but playful.
Speaking further about this, they share: “Sometimes things just don’t work out. That Dream Is Over is about accepting that, and not only being ok with it, but being ok with letting the world around you know you’ve moved on. The song was written in about an hour long break between studio sessions, inspired by an emotional few weeks of what felt like the last time Gleneagle would ever play together. For me personally, the song is a way of letting go of the pressure of success, and instead being grateful for being able to do what you love, with those you love around you.”
This showcases that across their blend of genres and influences is a focus on thoughtful songwriting; Gleneagle’s lyrics and tone strive to inspire a sense of both endearing nostalgia and youthful hope for the future. We believe, with such a positive feel in their songs, that they can get to the very top.
