80s pop rock nostalgia hurtles through time to 2023 in The Blytons’ latest release, Living The Dream. Synonymous with the idea of blissfully living with your head in the clouds, the song kicks off with an upbeat guitar and drum duo that is reminiscent of a coming-of-age film soundtrack.

It discusses the ideal world we create through our childhood dreams and how, especially for those who have dreams of the arts, it is common to be told that having these goals is like depending “on fairytales that never end”. A vocal fusion of The Beautiful South and The Magic Numbers, Living The Dream is the perfect whirlwind for all of the realistic dreamers, as The Blytons describe themselves, out there.
