WL//WH Video Of The Day: THE ULTIMATE DREAMERS “Midnight”


Belgian Coldwave / Post-Punk veterans out of Brussels, The Ultimate Dreamers, made up of  Bertrand (guitar), Frédéric (vocals), Joël (bass), and Sandrine (keyboards and cello), somehow celebrate the release of the 6-track EP Vinyl 12″ version of the recent debut 8-track studio album “Echoing Reverie”, produced by Len Lemeire (Implant, 32Crash, Anne Clark), with another gripping video, directed by Thomas De Moor, for the lush, enveloping and melodic “Midnight.”

“Midnight” sets in over an urban downtown drama where fading dreams and hopeful connections manifest a dark psychological dystopia seeped in obsession and gloom.

Skipping drum beats along with murky broody bass lines throb steadily through immersive misty auras built by sprawling wistful keyboard drifts and glistening guitar echoes, to emotively soar with bristling aching intensity, around haunted, dreamy vocal longings, lost in cold grey moods of hope and dread.

Echoing Reverie Tour

A dark fantasy by Thomas De Moor stars Ellie Bellini as a bored, lonely, and vulnerable teen, who takes on a reckless adventure in the city at night, alone. Surreal flows of motion, on point acting, and a blurry dim-lit backdrop set the stage for a tragic missed encounter, opening an alternate timeline of mystery and danger.

The Ultimate Dreamers‘ debut studio LP, “Echoing Reverie”, is out now, CD & Digital via Spleen+ label  (the cold wave/minimal synth division of the Alfa Matrix label group); and in Limited Vinyl 12″ EP edition through Wave Tension Records, and the band’s Bandcamp
