The best part of sleeping is slipping into dreams. Hidden thoughts, desires and memories come together in colorful collages that leave us feeling disoriented but sparkling upon awakening. That's exactly the feeling that Winter's "Dreaming" encapsulates. Their pop is so often fairy-tale like and whimsical, with Samira Winter's romantic and hazy soprano acting as your guide through their daydreams. This song was thought to be lost following the theft of a laptop, but a backup hard drive held the single, allowing us all to slip away into a dream world. We can remain "Dreaming" while the band continues work on an upcoming record.
