Water District’s “Dream With Your Eyes Open” is an engrossing emo / rock effort that builds off of Alkaline Trio, Taking Back Sundae, and Brookside. Wistful, hopeful, and absolutely beautiful in its execution, Dream With Your Eyes Open is able to showcase the technical side of the guitars, bass, and drums.
A thirty second (or so) bridge demarcates both sides of the single, with a echoing guitar / booming drum interaction keeping fans firmly locked to their seats. Water District has evolved from their earlier works (Come Down, Dear California). Dream With Your Eyes Open stands up to repeat plays and will be a mainstay of NeuFutur this autumn.
