Deidre & the Dark - Dreaming of You

After having greatly impressed us earlier this year with her previous single, "Boss Lady", Brooklyn-based chanteuse Deidre & the Dark, aka Deidre Muro, who is perhaps best known for her work with Violet Sands, Savoir Adore and French Horn Rebellion, now returns with her latest offering called "Dreaming of You". A modern take on the jazz standards of the 40s and 50s, the song was written by Deidre herself along with her co-producer/husband David Perlick-Molinari (French Horn Rebellion) as part of the score for the award-winning short film The Best and Worst Days of George Morales’ Unnaturally Long Life. Recorded at their studio YouTooCanWoo in Brooklyn, the track embodies the studio’s unique family-band-approach, featuring gorgeous string arrangements by Deidre’s brother Derek Muro (also of Violet Sands) and a French Horn solo courtesy of her brother-in-law Robert Perlick-Molinari.

Speaking on the track, Deidre says:

"Some of my earliest musical influences were jazz singers like Ella Fitzgerald and big band crooners like Frank Sinatra, not to mention the standards that were written in that era. Those were some of the greatest songs ever written, and it was really satisfying to study them closely when working on this song."
