It’s only their second single but The Nightmares’ ‘Dorothy’ is another nugget of synth-drenched alt-pop goodness with a dark undercurrent which is eluded to in the band’s very moniker.
“’Dorothy’ is a song about mourning the loss of someone close to you and how it can feel like they never really leave you… even in death,” says The Nightmares’ vocalist and guitarist Adam Parslow.
This track follows on from The Nightmares’ first ever single, the wonderfully catchy ‘Adore’. Both are cuts from their forthcoming self-titled debut EP, set for release 12 April via Pretty Hate Records.
