PREMIERE: Toothpaste – Bedtime

You know how it is here at Too Many Blogs, we just can’t just get enough of some top-notch dream-pop – so that’s exactly what we’re bringing to you today.

Upcoming minty fresh quartet Toothpaste have been cementing themselves into the London music scene as much as possible in recent months; supporting the likes of Sorry, GIRLI and Team Picture, as well as headlining shows alongside ones to watch Whenyoung and Pet Crow, they’re in very good company and that’s no coincidence.

New single ‘Bedtime’ is a step-up sonically from their previous release, with production being handled by the band’s own Daisy Edwards and mastered by Simon Scott of Slowdive. The track’s wistful guitar lines and soothing vocals allow the track to do what it says on the tin, as one can easily imagine sweet little sheep skipping past to help you gently dip into a dream-like state. But not so fast sleepy head, make sure to keep reading and listening before you doze off, or you’ll be missing out…

Of the track, vocalist Amol Prabhu writes:

'Bedtime is a song about the misty-eyed moments of magic you might feel just before you drift off into dreamland. It is an ode to the blissful escape of sleep and the chance of seeing the one you love slip into your room, giving you a sweet send-off towards the shores of slumber. The feeling you get of slipping through the ever expansive layers of consciousness until you land with a gentle bump on the picturesque field of your dormant landscape. Was the one who floated into bed beside you ever really there? Whether in dreams or reality, the mere pretence of their presence was enough to soothe you for the night.'
