“A Dream Is All I Know” By The Lemon Twigs

The Lemon Twigs recently released a new video for “A Dream Is All I Know,” the title-track and latest single off their forthcoming album, which drops on May 3rd via Captured Tracks. Today’s single is accompanied by a string of newly announced May tour dates — including two nights in NYC.

Says Brian on writing the track: “This song is about impermanence and the dreamlike nature of our day to day lives. It was written when I was feeling a strong sense of unreality in my kitchen. Unfortunately, “Unreality In My Kitchen” didn’t have much of a ring to it so we had to go with “A Dream Is All I Know” as the title.”

The new video edited and directed by Michael and Brian D’Addario themselves. Shot on film in NYC, the video pictures the band moving through their day in an absurdist reverie, skipping through scenes at school, on stage, in the clouds… the Twigs are dazed and confused, in more ways than one.

Recorded completely to tape and mixed and mastered by Brian and Michael themselves on of-the-era equipment, A Dream Is All We Know presents a tracklist that is historically accurate, but altogether new. From the timeless tropes of the Lennon-McCarthy songbook — including the most explicit example yet, with co-production on “In The Eyes Of The Girl” by Sean Ono Lennon — to the harmonies of the Wilson family and nods to The Move, Big Star, Tradewinds and more.

The Lemon Twigs have toured with Weyes Blood to Tim Heidecker and many more, and have toured with Phoenix, Bleachers, Arctic Monkeys, and their musical hero Todd Rungren. Fans of the brothers, include Elton John, The Zombies, Gerard Way, Iggy Pop, and many more.
