I'm a few days late on this one, but that absolutely does not mean I haven't been grooving to it all weekend. One, because I love The Cranberries, and two because I love the fact that beat maker RAC and his wife known as Pink Feathers have teamed up for the new joint. This one is a cover of the age old tune "Dreams" and turns up the tempo a notch all the while maintaining that soft, sweet touch.
I reported on Pink Feathers' last drop, and that's when I first realized her and RAC had an "outside of music" relationship. Although, I wouldn't label it that. I like to think the two have two separate abilities that, when morphed together, create something brilliant. Isn't that what marriage is for in the first place? Anyways, "Dreams" is a huge orchestra-like arrangement, increasing RAC's usual time range to 6 minutes and 30 seconds. We aren't aware of the actual cover until about two minutes in, which gives those first lyrics that much more of a tingle.
The couple has offered this one up for free download in celebration of RAC reaching four million followers on Soundcloud, so show some appreciation and grab it.
