The new single ‘Dreams’ from the Canadian singer was written by Jozem during a time of great uncertainty in his life, when he was doing his best to follow his own path and achieve his life’s goals but nothing seemed to be going his way, allowing fear and self-doubt to begin to plague his mind. ‘Dreams’ was penned as a response.
Jozem shares about the new single, “‘Dreams’ is a meditation, a prayer and a projection of where I want to be in life, a guiding compass of sorts. The song is really all about cutting out those naysayers, the internal and external voices of self-doubt that lead you to stall or try to block you from realizing your goals. ‘Dreams’ is about recognizing and having the strength to do away with the toxic influences in your life that reap negativity and self-doubt, repurposing that toxicity and using it as fuel to propel oneself further. Ultimately, it’s about remaining steadfast, knowing that you are on the right path, that the journey is as important and sometimes even more meaningful than the destination.”
By utilising an ambient and spacious approach to production, ‘Dreams’ boasts a unique sonic atmosphere that’s consistent with Jozem’s catalogue of experimental and highly atmospheric styles of music. The sounds he creates through the production of his songs are there more to provoke a feeling or enhance the mood of the lyrics than to create a rhythmic foundation for the song.
The new track ‘Dreams’ is therefore refreshingly minimalistic, ethereal and purposely constructed in order for Jozem’s vocals and intimate, emotion-filled lyricism to shine through as the primary focus.
Through his incredibly skilled songwriting and clever instrumentation choices, Jozem manages to create music that is much like physical art; captivating, three-dimensional and provocative.
