GIRLPOOL – “DRAGGING MY LIFE INTO A DREAM”

Posted: February 24, 2022 in MUSIC

Girlpool’s new album Forgiveness is out in April via ANTI-Records, and the latest single is the mellow, tuneful “Dragging My Life Into a Dream.”

“I wrote ‘Dragging My Life Into a Dream’ after going out to a party,” Avery Tucker says. “I had spent the last year confronting being on my own in a way I had been avoiding for a long time. Although I knew that I was growing and still needed to heal from past relationships, I missed feeling connected to somebody and inspired. This song is about romanticizing a past time and also longing for my heart to feel open and innocent again.”

In the visual, Tucker plays a store clerk who drifts into daydreams of wearing a white linen suit and lounging on the beach. He sings about imagining a past lover at a party as he contemplates a time before the pain and heartache: “I want my innocence back, I don’t wanna be this bad / But I’m so insecure these days / Still chasing the heart I pushed away.” With a wistful tone and gentle guitars, “Dream” reflects upon the harsh reality of growth, letting the mind drift into bittersweet memories from time to time.

The LA-based duo of Avery Tucker and Harmony Tividad, who make music together as Girlpool, are getting ready to release their fourth album, titled “Forgiveness“, which is out April 29th on ANTI- Records. Following 2021’s “Faultline” and “Lie Love Lullaby” from last month, they’ve now shared the third single from the release “Dragging My Life Into a Dream” with a self-directed video.
