Lunchbox - "Dream Parade"

Tim Brown and Donna McKean have been making music as Lunchbox since the 1990's. I distinctly remember greatly enjoying their 1999 album The Magic of Sound back in my college radio days. They are now back with a new song, "Dream Parade." The new song is what would now be called dream pop. It stops just short of whimsical, and is a beautiful, mid-tempo little jam. The song is impossible catchy, and is far more inventive and sonically interesting than you would realize upon first listen. It's also ninety seconds long, which is an anomaly for this genre of music. It's just enough to leave us wanting to hear a whole lot more from Lunchbox in 2020.

You can watch the video for "Dream Parade" below. After School Special, the upcoming album from Lunchbox, is due October 30 on Slumberland Records. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Lunchbox, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
