Today, It Was All A Dream, the new dream-pop project from Amy Maskell and Sophie Lowe, formerly of London trio Peluché, have shared their debut single ‘Kookaburra’. A kaleidoscopic blend of synths, samplers, clarinet, drums and vocals, It Was All A Dream create a beautiful sonic landscape which draws on elements of 90s pop, dance, dub, soul and RnB. Their musical concoction is as playful as it is moving, as they sing about emotional growth, climate change and being in isolation.

On their new single, the pair say:

“After a long, cold period of isolation in winter 2021, we met up in the early spring. We were at Sophie's flat and Amy spotted a lovely bright bird on the branches of the oak tree outside. It was really comforting to be in its company as we watched it through the window. We were singing about the bird as we walked to our shed to play, and Kookaburra came out along the way. It is a song about coming through loneliness and finding hope.”

The duo met over a decade ago through a beautiful stranger in a customer service encounter and have been playing music together ever since. Their band Peluché, who disbanded in 2019, released their debut album, Unforgettable, via One Little Independent Records as well as single via Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label, receiving high praise from the likes of tastemakers like Noisey, i-D, Q, NME, TLOBF and The Guardian.

Since forming It Was All A Dream, Amy and Sophie have been busy writing in their shed studio in West Norwood and are currently recording their debut album with Toby Burroughs from Pozi. New single ‘Kookaburra’ is out now via Some Other Planet Records and to celebrate the release, the duo will be playing at The Folklore Rooms in Brighton on April 26th and The George Tavern in London on Sat 18th June.
