‘Dreamworld’ is a track that oozes with a familiarity that you want to chase down and hold onto tightly. Andy Martin’s pop-rock songwriting is just as nostalgic as it is exciting and new.

With his energy never dwindling, any heartbreak or angst addressed by Andy resonates musically through unifying lyricism and feel-good melodies.
