Manuela Iwansson’s debut EP Dream Lover is a neat little bundle of romance and grit. The stage is set to a 1980s ballroom, where dream lovers navigate a dream world of imminent longing. A place where death and desire take turns leading, while clinging on to time that fades. Four songs doused in sadness and seduction – a soundtrack of dancing desperately into the night.
Manuela Iwansson used to sing in Terrible Feelings and on a rainy November weekend, she gathered some friends and recorded this EP. Dream Lover is her first solo effort but, rest assured, it is most definitely not her last. Dream Lover is due on June 15 via Lack of Sleep Records.
