Every person has dreams. People can recall at least one dream experience that has made an impression on them. Some suggest that dreams are a random assortment of thoughts while others believe that dreams offer meaning. But no matter at what angle you look at it, it remains the same: people live dual lives.

The concept of Sleeping Awake is used metaphorically and esoterically but can ultimately be summarized as having two lives; your physical and your dream. So much activity happens in both, yet one feels natural, the other has a feeling only dreamers can attest to.

As a music lover, you breath, live and dream music, so what better to listen to while you dream than the latest effort from Australian Pop-Rock band Underground Lovers and Chinese Electronic duo Dear Eloise. Underground Lovers are coming off a hiatus and this year have launched "Weekend", their latest EP full of that dream sound that just fills your ears with a gentle resonance and beautiful soundscape. But like a dream, their music skips and jumps into a new realm by adding Dear Eloise, the veteran electronic duo who's sound is a sonic hallucination of exquisiteness and awe.

This latest split album has only been released on 7" vinyl, making audiophiles and record aficionados that much more excited. The collaboration between the two groups was brought by in part artistic negotiations between Genjing Records and Rubber Records. And with their new deal put to sleep, their baby's dreams can come alive.

The first track is dubbed "Haunted" and rightfully so. The sound that emanates from the track could have only been manufactured by the metaphysical; it's big, it's bright, and it fills even the tightest ears with a grandiose, eerie song sound. Attributed as a love song by the band, the vocals are hauntingly magnificent as they travel through your senses. Each instruments is an ingredient for the sandman's dream concoction since by themselves, don't offer a distinct quality other than being dream-like. However the sonic explosion of he band together is what really sets them apart.

While you dream, you enter different stages of REM sleep, which causes dreams. The next track is the ultimate stage, when Chinese duo Dear Eloise comes in and adds their flavor to the mix. Dear Eloise is known more for their Electronic Noise than their ability to fluctuate instruments. Nevertheless, Underground Lovers and Dear Eloise share the front stage and even balance out the track "Man Without a Name". Hear, the electronic influence is more prevalent as the dream patterns thump more whilst adding their signature noise sheen, buttering up the rock inspired song. Underground Lovers continue with their dream music but now seem to bring it down, almost as if to be waking up the listener gradually. Dear Eloise takes over with their vocals with singer Sun Xia, as her voice propels the song into the highest of senses.

This entire EP is made for the daydreamers, the thinkers, and the people who believe that dreams and life are symmetrical, not apart. This is a rare gem that music lovers can appreciate and should rightfully own a copy, even if they don't own a record player. Each track has been laced with a whirlwind of tender sound that turns into a tornado of dreams fit for an active mind and an open music fan.
