A classic 45rpm 7" single from Philadelphia pop rock punks DARK THOUGHTS. This single for the forthcoming full length LP entitled "MUST BE NICE" (coming January 2020 on Stupid Bag Records USA/Drunken Sailor Records UK) contains two fantastic tracks of the blazing unforgettably catchy power pop rock'n'roll you've come to expect from this fierce trio. Side A features DO YOU DREAM? (Alternate 7" only mix), an instant classic, you'll immediately keep dropping the needle back to start over and over again! Side B includes the exclusive 7" only track "IT'S TOO LATE", another two minute pop rock fist punch earworm to your brainpan. Pop made by punks. It's not just good, its Ramones good.
Our take: Brand new two-song single from every hardcore punk’s favorite melodic punk band, Dark Thoughts. I can see why “Do You Dream” gets the a-side as it might be the poppiest Dark Thoughts song yet. The approach is still the same, but whereas the vocal melodies used to have to fight the riffs and the blistering drumbeats for your attention, “Do You Dream” seems comfortable being a sing-along. The b-side, “It’s Too Late” (which is exclusive to this 7”), is more riff-driven and Ramones-y, and it’s just as good as any other Dark Thoughts track. This single is very short, but it does its job getting me salivating for the upcoming third full-length.
