Mise en Scene, recently announced their full-length Winnipeg, California, will drop on October 9, via Light Organ Records. In their short career, Mise en Scene has played SXSW, Reeperbahn, The Great Escape, and Primavera Sound and shared stages with acts such as The New Pornographers and Best Coast.
Alongside the announcement, they’ve shared the video for their new single “Dollar Dreams”. Tinged with sweet reverb-drenched melodies and guitarist/vocalist Stef Johnson’s alluring lyricism, the swooning shoegaze-esque anthem captures the fleeting feeling of being shot in the heart with love at first sight, as if by cupid himself. The accompanying music video is described by the band as a “little love letter” dedicated to their home base of Winnipeg in Manitoba. Speaking on the video Stef says “I love the juxtaposition between the Hollywood sign and the Garbage Hill sign, it just feels so good to me, those two signs are a perfect reflection of our new album: Hollywood Hills meets garbage dump, glamour sparkle meets grungy grit.”
““Dollar Dreams” is a fantasy,” Stef says speaking on the track, “it’s about letting your imagination run wild and romanticizing the possibilities of the future… We say “Dollar dreams in Winnipeg, California” right off the bat because we want to make it clear that these moments happen everywhere, just like life happens everywhere. Our fantasies and dreams happen where we are.”
