After their recent single See Us Go Alone picked up press and playlist support, Cambridge singer-songwriters Izi & Xena Phoenix have dropped another new song, the stately and beautiful We Are Dreaming. The haunting new indie-folk song showcases Izi’s gravelly baritone and Xena’s hazy twilight vocals, and is available now on all streaming and download platforms.
Fans of The National, Leonard Cohen & Keaton Henson will find plenty to discover here. Check it out on Soundcloud below –
“The song is the excitement you feel for someone new,” explains Izi on the new single. “You’re not sure who they are yet, but there’s an overwhelming desire to be near them. A nervous excitement that builds through the day waiting for the night and its release.”
We Are Dreamingis driven by the ethereal dual voices of Izi Phoenix and Xena Phoenix, and they’ve been acclaimed by indie press and gained widespread new music radio support. A partnership in life as well as music, Izi taught Xena to ride a motorcycle whilst Xena taught Izi about the value of friendship – and after that they continued to learn from and be taught by each other like two rivers flowing into the sea, the music evolving from the first trickle of rain to the great torrents carving through the land.
