Indie pop/rock due Sender's Dream released their second single, Orange Afternoon, on Friday, January 4, 2019.
In a song Minneapolis City Pages calls "fruit-spawned bliss," the duo of Pat Gibbons and Dan Hylton offers the listener a gentle, soulful, and rather lush sashay into uncharted, orange territory. Adding the contributions of multi-instrumentalist Mark Anderson (Southern Resident Killer Whales), Orange Afternoon traipses it's way through a veritable poppy field of melody and musical progression up through a powerful, only distantly threatening, yet ultimately satisfying, conclusion, Lyrically, an exploration of how to chill.out.
Sender's Dream released their debut single, The Go Ahead, in September 2018. Described by Minneapolis MN's City Pages as "a jaunty message of self-determination and astral exploration," "The Go Ahead" featured than a nod to the sound of Revolver-era Beatles, a touch of noise pop, and a lotta plain ol' searing rock n' roll sensibility. The Space Man is giving you The Go Ahead. If you listen, you just might hear it.
Indie rock co-songwriters and co-conspirators Pat Gibbons and Dan Hylton have enjoyed many musical adventures together, having spearheaded the Minneapolis band 44 and partnered for the eponymous duo, Pat and Dan. The two have now teamed up again on an ambitious collaborative endeavor writing and recording songs with the gracious creative contributions of musical friends from around the world.
