After the stellar Colourwave era, Belau returns with a brand new single called Dreamstate with the stunning Australian singer Akacia, who has garnered more than 50 million streams across all platforms. “The history of change is deeply rooted in our culture, but for most of us, the grace we can finally experience for ourselves is distant, mystical, and seems unattainable in this secular world. Although this route, on the other hand, is accessible to everyone, you will feel like you are in a real “dream state”. The song is about life beyond our own boundaries, a transition from stagnation to progress, a way out of our own fears. A man much wiser than us once claimed that only when such an internal process takes place in every heart – and, of course, outside – is it possible to bring peace, eternal, to the societies of the world. and there is certainly nothing else Belau could further support in this growing dynamic of the world. We are all made of gold, ”said the electronics duo about the new single, which is the dreamy anthem of lofi r’n’b.
“My good friend and I created a video for Dreamstate in Malta. We spent four days on these amazing islands, discovering breathtaking landscapes during the day, playing concerts in the evening, so good memories,” continued Belau, who is currently working on his third album.
