This is the debut album from UK psych foursome The Lucid Dream. Formed in Carlisle, Cumbria, in the far north of England, in 2008 and fused by small town boredom and a mentality to break the mold, they siphoned the spirits of key influences such as The Jesus & Mary Chain and Spacemen 3, to suitably shape their live repertoire in an old textile factory, overlooked by a disused gas works. Initial releases between 2010-2012 (Erbistock Mill EP), and three sold-out 7" singles (Love In My Veins, Heartbreak Girl, Hits Me Like I'm Stoned), gained significant praise from the likes of British music magazine The Fly, NME, and BBC Radio. The white noise that opens the first nine minutes of the album is by no means indicative of the album as a whole. Tracks such as "In Your Eyes," "Love In My Veins," and "Heartbreak Girl" ultimately owe more to the psych pop of The Stone Roses, The Byrds, The Ronettes, and C86-era Primal Scream.
