Bio

Casinodreams has erupted onto the Perth music scene, boasting a fresh, tight and exciting new sound. Beginning as the experimental solo project of Perth’s own Harrison Read, Casinodreams pairs 60’s mod influences with modern muses, emulating iconic artists such as Gorillaz and Arctic Monkeys.
Fresh from competing in the 2016 Big Splash competition and recently opening for Triple J's Unearthed High winners, Mosquito Coast, the once modest bedroom project has flourished into a full 5-piece live act, receiving praise for its unison, chemistry and effortless flair.
“…another bunch of super talented chaps took us by the hand to a more anthemic perhaps more commercial realm of tunes. These guys dig on Arctic Monkeys and the dancier end rock. The act have great chemistry with the look of a gang that make sense together.” – The Big Splash, 2016.
No stranger to the scene, Harrison has cut his teeth with previous indie outfit, The Cabarets and is currently fronting the Record Club-birthed, Moscow Mules.
Due for a single and video release later this year, Casinodreams has already received a warm welcome at Triple J's Unearthed radio station with previous single 'Throw' featuring in the stations Unearthed High advertisement campaign, also receiving airplay on stations around Perth including RTRFM 92.1, Radio Fremantle and 89.7FM.
With more studio time on the cards and a plethora of shows coming up, Casinodreams are looking to end an exciting year on a high!

Nobody's going to question your ability to write a chorus.

Great track! Little bit of a "foster the people" vibe in the chorus! Amazing melodies threaded through a feel good vibe!

I don't know what it is, but ever since I listened to this, I can't get it out of my head. I didn't like it strongly at first, but now I keep coming back for more and more.
