Oneiros Way – The Dawn Is Near (Album – I Dischi Del Minollo)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Dream-Pop. 

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: Oneiros Way is a Milan (Italy) based male-female duo unleashing their debut album of nine songs. 

Content: The debut part of this work is slowly driven and carried by vibrating bass lines. Somewhere in between ballads and Electro-ballads the album however progressively evolves towards a more explicit Dream-Pop approach. The songs have been sung by both members although there also is an instrumental cut revealing the Cinematographic influences of the band. 

+ + + : From this album I especially keep in mind the beautiful “Raining Frogs”. This song is a dreamy Ballad-piece reflecting sweetness and appealing for imaginary images. I also like “Immersion (Singolo)”, which is pure Dream-Pop accentuated by the sweet female vocals. I also have to say a word about some of the cool crystalline sound treatments. 

– – – : There for sure is some potential hiding  behind this band, which now has to elaborate the writing and polishing some elements of the production.

Conclusion: This album sounds like a debut-work, but might be a basis to improve different elements of the production. Let’s keep an eye on Oneiros Way.  

Best songs: “Raining Frogs”, “Immersion (Singolo)”. 

Rate: 6½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
