Whistling, a little light tinkling on the ivories and a Matrix-style musing on the dreamlike qualities of love and death make ‘Death is Like a Dream We’ll Have’ simultaneously lighthearted and sad. Off his new album, Sleep Dreamt a Brother, this is one of a long line of Mathew Sawyer songs that’re well worth your time.
We also urge you to spend some minutes wandering his idiosyncratic blog, which centres around the album.
Each track will receive an entry in which Mathew shares a drawing or photograph, something relating to the song and a few assorted observations, all of which make for eccentrically charming reading. The entry for ‘Death is Like a Dream We’ll Have‘ seems a good place for you to start.
