Newcastle-based indie rocker Suddenly We Stopped Dreaming (SWSD) strikes a chord with melodic single I Can’t Believe It’s You, a perpetually rhythmic ballad presented on a bed of gritty guitar and comforting, steady percussion.

This track is one of a series of singles planned for release throughout lockdown and the summer, and sees the return of ethereal vocalist Juniper, a previous collaborator on livelier single Tonight. With I Can’t Believe It’s You, the pair have produced a shoegazey hit to set your watch to.

These singles, a sure nod to the 90s and early naughties indie rock movement, help bring the genre into a new decade, carrying a warming combination of fresh nostalgia. Beneath the surface, however, I Can’t Believe It’s You documents a tale of unrequited love and the loneliness that such an event can entail.

Comparisons can’t help but be drawn between the single’s evocative longing and the current plight of society – those in lockdown alone will surely find a cathartic friend here. Another solid tune from SWSD (and Juniper), keep your ear to the ground moving into 2021 – an album is on the horizon.

Suddenly We Stopped Dreaming release I Can’t Believe It’s You on 6th July
