Jangly dream-pop may have found its new favorite band, and one that we’ve all been sleeping on, is Dreamgirl. Singer & multi-instrumentalist Lacey Hopkins met multi-instrumentalist Skylar Smith at a 2008 Friendsgiving gone wrong. The two bonded over French electropop and screamo, and they've been making music together ever since, forming Dreamgirl in 2013. Drummer Ian Dobyns and bassist Joe Gronniger subsequently joined forces in 2016 and 2019, respectively. They are pleased to report that all is well. You might hear them on the radio in a college town. The band looks excitedly to 2022 for a bevy of U.S. tours and the release of a full-length album.
