‘Blue Wave’ (released 3rd December 2021) is the debut EP from Custard Dream, the indie and psychedelic rock brainchild of Cambridge-based artist, producer and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Davies.
Released on 3Ms Music, the 5-track set will come bolstered with the inclusion, as a bonus, of their remarkable version of the Led Zep classic ‘When The Levee Breaks’.
Listen to ‘When The Levee Breaks’ here.
Building in industrial drums, fuzzy guitars and velcro-like synthesizers, Custard Dream brew up an eclectic mix spanning retro 80’s bass lines and futuristic space rock riffs, but with deeply meaningful lyrics that speak to you one-on-one.
Ryan says: “I’m both obsessed with retro electronic music like Kraftwerk and also just straight up blues music – And, I wanted to force those two worlds together and make them get along like old friends. Lyrically, I wanted to explore my love and hate of growing up in England. I love the poetic monotony of John Cooper Clarke and I wanted the lyrics to be somewhat English and mundane against a backdrop of space-age synthesizers.”
“Everything from new wave to psychedelia and serves them up as a delicious smorgasbord”
