Jack Colwell Releases New Single ‘in My Dreams’

“Colwell is an artist, singer and composer who refuses to be categorised. Recalling Roy Orbison, Jeff Buckley and Kate Bush, his range is dizzying” – The GuardianAustralian musician Jack Colwell has today released 'In My Dreams', the first single from his forthcoming debut album.

‘In My Dreams’ is a dark, cinematic ballad that draws on Jack’s classical training at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and his love of boundary-pushing confessional songwriters such as Nick Cave and PJ Harvey.

The song was produced by renowned Australian singer-songwriter Sarah Blasko and mixed in Los Angeles by Rich Costey. It features members of the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

Says Jack: “This song is a fever dream about a troubled couple in which I play both the victim and the murderer, singing a wordless tune on a midnight train to the end of the world.”

The accompanying video clip was filmed by Joe Nankin (The xx, M83) in the English countryside. Jack delves into themes and process: “When I was writing the song, I was heavily influenced by Renaissance and Golden Age paintings that depicted violent scenes. I found it really fascinating how something so beautiful could also be so tortured. I collected images that I passed onto the director who immediately caught onto what I was trying to express with my music. We ran away to the woods and conjured up our own queer version of A Midsummer Night's Dream.”To celebrate the release of 'In My Dreams', Jack is playing two intimate album-preview shows in Sydney and Melbourne next month with very special guests.
