NYC’s beloved sibling duo The Lemon Twigs announce their all new 2024 LP A Dream Is All We Know, arriving May 3rd on Captured Tracks. Following 2023’s emotionally charged Everything Harmony A Dream Is All We Know finds brothers Michael and Brian D’addario (24 and 26 years old) exploring upbeat, shimmering arrangements that live in an imaginary space they call Mersey Beach: the sonic bridge between Liverpool and Laurel Canyon.

The Lemon Twigs informally announced the record on Fallon with a high energy performance of the LP’s standalone single “My Golden Years”. Vibrating, shimmering guitar and “serious Beach Boys vibes” (FLOOD), the power-pop anthem pays faithful homage while adding their signature Twigs twist.

“They Don’t Know How To Fall In Place”, is a whimsical nod to an unrealised romantic relationship. The video, directed by Amber Navarro (Molly Lewis, Weyes Blood, Diners), features tiny versions of The Lemon Twigs running amok, Borrowers style, atop euphoric organ-song and kaleidoscopic harmonies.

Leaving behind the nylon string-based arrangements of Everything Harmony, A Dream Is All We Know revisits some of the style the brothers first introduced on Do Hollywoodpairing the theatricality of the Lennon-McCartney songbook with contemporary narratives, explosive electric guitar riffs, and the sunny harmonies and ingenious recording techniques of the Wilson family.

With almost a decade of songwriting under their belt, A Dream Is All We Know clearly demonstrates the D’Addario brother’s growth from doe-eyed teenagers eager to make music reminiscent of their heroes, to young men with an acute attention to detail and multi-instrumentalist gifts. The band have shared stages with Phoenix, Bleachers, Arctic Monkeys and their musical hero Todd Rungren, garnered praise from Elton John, The Zombies, Gerard Way, Iggy Pop, and made a full transformation into visionary songwriters and arrangers whose oeuvre is itself a source of inspiration to other artists.
