Indie-folk duo, The Dreggs new album Caught In A Reverie will be out Friday 26 April, days ahead of their sold out Torquay Hotel launch party

With a solid start to 2024 as triple j Unearthed’s first feature artist of the year, The Dreggs have been levelling up throughout the months and this month is huge for the Sunshine Coast duo who are releasing their debut album.

  • SAT 15 JUN | Metro City, PERTH WA | 18+

To signal their new album era, The Dreggs dropped single ‘Peeps with the Goods‘ on Friday 22 March which sees them dip into new territory. Taking cues from fellow Aussie indie darling, Matt Corby, Paddy Macrae ad Zane Harris explore elements of airy soul and gospel mixed into their warm sonic palette.

Macrae explains, “Matt Corby was a huge influence for this track. We were given the opportunity to write and record with Corby and this song is the result of that collaboration. The song is about the push and pull a lot of independent artists have to confront within the music industry. It’s an anthem to those who have experienced equal parts joy and frustration with their career, but also a reminder that persevering is the only way to push through and find that ‘happy place’, whatever that might mean for them.”

Building the track with both Corby and Alex Henriksson in the studio with mastering from Paul Blakey, ‘Peeps with the Goods’ joins ‘Take A Little Time‘ and ‘Places‘ as the leads for Caught In A Reverie with ‘Peeps with the Goods’ in album poll position.

They will be launching the album in style with a bunch of sold out Launch Parties including a step into Torquay Hotel on Wednesday 1 May, then jumping on the road for an Australian and New Zealand tour hitting up Melbourne’s Forum on Saturday 29 June. Sadly, their stop into Splendour in the Grass will no longer be happening due to the festival cancellation but there is ample opportunity to see the dynamic duo of The Dreggs live.
