Young Dreams is a collective of 12 like-minded souls who craft grand escapist pop songs that are sunny and dreamy, as far removed from the cold of their hometown of Bergen, Norway as you can imagine.

Fusing tropicália, psychedelic rock, traditional pop, and classical symphonic arrangements, as well as recalling the classic sounds of Brian Wilson and Phil Spector, Young Dreams both adhere to and upend the conventional definitions of pop music, creating a sound that's at once refreshingly familiar and daringly unique.

Wanting to explore more expansive sounds and compositions, Matias Tellez-already an established Norwegian solo artist-recruited an ever-expanding group of singers and musicians eager to join him in his journey. They locked themselves in a basement and emerged two weeks later with a handful of songs they then uploaded to their Facebook page. These received an immediate response from the Norwegian and international music press.

The group spent the next year playing the Hove Festival, By:Larm and Camden Crawl, and went on their first European tour with fellow Norwegian artist Sondre Lerche. Signing on to Modular Records in 2011, Young Dreams began working on their debut Between Places, which was released to acclaim in 2013, capturing the hearts of their fans all over again.

Now, after touring Europe with Tame Impala, supporting Kings of Convenience in Germany, and making a visit to SXSW in Texas, USA, the restless wanderers make their way to Singapore for the very first time.

Put on your shades, roll up your sleeves, and bask in the sun-drenched symphonies of Young Dreams.
