Backseat Dreamer is the solo project of South Carolina musician Sean Neuse.
The events of dreams are often impossible, or unlikely to occur, in physical reality: they are also outside the control of the dreamer. The exception to this is known as lucid dreaming, in which dreamers realize that they are dreaming, and are sometimes capable of changing their dream environment and controlling various aspects of the dream. The dream environment is often much more realistic in a lucid dream, and the senses heightened.
Backseat Dreamer started in the winter of 2006 as a way for Sean to experiment with hypnotic lush textures using synthesizers, drum machines, layered vocals, pop songwriting and experimental music alike. At the time Sean was performing as a drummer with local favorite band Culture Prophet as well as being the guitarist, drummer and keyboardist for Le Chevre and Coma Cinema. For Sean, working on four track recordings for Backseat Dreamer quickly led to producing a number of demos and the first incarnation of performing live shows for the solo project began the following year in 2007. After a small tour in 2008 the project sparked the interest of a few record labels and Love Not Found, a 16 minute experimental EP was released on Atlanta based label Stickfigure Recordings (Deerhunter, Xiu Xiu etc.) on Oct 28th. 2008.
The Colors of Dreams, They’re in You, the debut full length from Backseat Dreamer, was recorded throughout most of 2008 and 2009 and was officially released on July 13th. 2010.
