Dreamers performing during the Summer Tour 2019 at the Austin360 Amphitheater in Austin, Texas on August 7, 2019, with Nick Wold, Nelson, and Jacob Wick.
After more than two years of nomadism and cross-country touring, as well as two EPs, Los Angeles’ DREAMERS released its debut full-length LP This Album Does Not Exist on August 26, 2016. The smart alt pop trio, comprised of Nick Wold (vocals/guitar), Nelson (bass/vocals), and Jacob Wick (drums), wrote much for the album in Brooklyn before moving to L.A. and tracking at Fairfax Recordings (formerly Sound City Studios).

Led by singles like “Drugs” and “Sweet Disaster,” DREAMERS pits the party and the paranoia of escapism in seemingly effortlessly tight, three-minute tunes. Album tracks like “Pain Killer” and “Lucky Dog” follow in this vein, swinging with handclaps and driving with sing-along choruses. Throughout This Album Does Not Exist, DREAMERS toys with themes of existence and existentialism, but it’s easy enough to get sucked into their world and dance the big questions away.
Setlist for the show at the Austin360 Amphitheater
  • SCREWS
  • Vampire in the Sun
  • It’s Something to Be Alive
