Edged with the dead-eyed purr reminiscent of Nick Cave courtesy of frontman Declan Newcombe, ‘Will My Dreams Be Electric Tonight?’ sees the songwriter inviting us into the shadow-cast depths of his sub-consciousness. After a distorted dream one night in which he vicariously lived through a troubling situation, Declan found himself haunted for some time afterwards.

The fourth single from Emily Breeze’s debut album Rituals, “Heaven’s Gate” is a glacial slice of Sci-Fi propaganda which was inspired by a documentary about the 90’s Christian U.F.O cult of the same name. Emily says, “I was interested in how a seductive promise of eternal salvation can compel a person to hand over all personal agency to devote themselves entirely to a belief system, especially one as bizarre and deadly as Heaven’s Gate”.
