Hailing from Preston, indie four-piece Dream English Kid are building a cult following in the North West with a knack for catchy hypnagogic pop. They’ve just released new music video ‘In Alone’, recorded and produced by BLEICH4 and directed by Victoria Vrublevska. We caught up with the band ahead of their appearances at Leeds festivals Reb’Elle and HER later this year.
