about

With “Dream Fever”, Belgian multi-talented artist Yves Schelpe reveals the very first song from PSY’AVIAH’s forthcoming 9th full length album “Soul Searching”.

As nicely expressed in the official video clip accompanying the release of this new EP, “Dream Fever” is an introspective song telling the story of a person trapped inside a hallucinating dream you can’t wake up from, a description of escapism where reality and fiction merge into one, a glimpse into a dystopian future where some questions arise like “Can I dream forever, will I fade away? Will I live again or do I fade away?"?

The warm and lush vocals of Saydi Driggers (lead-singer of power pop band WHSTLE) perfectly fit this moody song wrapping you up in an emotional cocoon through her long sweeping notes for an overall "larger-than-life" feel.

Musically PSY’AVIAH reminds us more than ever that it is not for nothing that his music has often been compared with the best moments of DELERIUM? “Dream Fever” forecasts a very exotic dreamy journey into sound merging the bands characteristic recipe of modern trip-hop, dynamic synth layers, darker basslines and blissful vocals with a widened exotic sound palette of instruments including Indian violin (Sarangi), rhythmic guitar (Dranye), Takasim, harp, etc.

As exclusive bonus B-side song for this new EP release, Yves Schelpe entertains himself by covering one of his all time favourite songs “Walking On The Moon” by THE POLICE, plunging this classic song in PSY’AVIAH’s colourful moody and somewhat nostalgic e-pop style.

PSY’AVIAH also collaborated with 3 remixers offering a quite different touch to the title song with HayTem transporting the dreamstate of the song to the dancefloor with its true trance treat and EDM pounding beats. And if the collab with Disquette.s gives a dreamy eighties synthwave vibe to “Dream Fever”, Mind.Divided reinforced the introspective feel of the song for a full ambient interpretation making you feel like trapped inside a bubble.

PSY’AVIAH announces here a much promising new album for 2019 that will make us travel to far away exotic sonic landscapes, a new creative chapter in the exploration of sound of PSY'AVIAH’s rich and stunning career evolution, sticking to the project’s tagline and philosophy: "open-minded electronic music with heart & soul". Dream away with PSY’AVIAH and prepare yourself for a unique “Soul Searching” experience!

Faithful supporters of the band will enjoy the Bandcamp edition of the EP offering 2 bonus instrumental versions, a remix kit, a digital booklet with lyrics and more…
