Nisa - "Dreamspeak"

Photo by Will Oliver

Nisa's latest single is predominately a pop track, but it's strongly an alt-pop track. In fact, "Dreamspeak" might be the most alt- of all the alt-pop songs we've covered. The song is soaked in synths and has a little bit of a Lana del Ray meets Molly Burch sound. At times "Dreamspeak" is a pure (albeit off-kilter) torch song, and others it's much more dance friendly. It's one of those great songs that is going to force you to listen to it a few times in a row to make sure you take it all in, which is rare in a pop song, alt-pop or not.

Nisa says of her latest single:

“I once heard from someone that not being able to communicate in your dreams is a reflection of your waking life's sense of not being heard. I thought about writing 'Dreamspeak' as an undoing of this feeling, where my dream-self could confront me and give me my voice back.”
