Dripping with deep, atmospheric reverb, the nearly half hour album kicks right into gear with their first track, “Forever Between Us (Pt 1)” – a mood setter for the length of the nine songs. Found throughout the album are poppy guitar that reminds you of warmer weather sets the tone. Peppy drums and punchy bass riffs through every track. Subtle, yet prominent synth whirs in and out. Vocalist Lacey Hopkins lays out her heart via distinct, charming vocal melodies – sometimes accompanied by Austin Marks, sometimes not.

Songs like “Mythos” and “Just Friends” pull on the heartstrings and solidify Dreamgirl as an unbelievably catchy pop act. Other songs like “Silverado” and “Bad Bizness” add a crooner-like quality to the soundscape, adding a unique element to their quasi-modern sound. Needless to say every song on this album has the strength to stand alone.

Dreamgirl takes you for one of the most relaxing joyrides you’ve been on in a while. At least it did for me. Recommended to listen to with sunlight on your face and wind in your hair, cold weather or warm weather – this is a season-less listen.


Amorous is a progressive alternative rock band newly formed in Washington, DC that is heavily influenced by shoegaze, indie rock, dream-pop, and psychedelic rock. The project is produced by primary songwriter and frontman Alec Young and is filled with layers of dreamy guitar and a sometimes bittersweet groove.
