Magnetic Magazine recently premiered “It’s All Happening,” from Dream System 8‘s debut LP We Sleep Again. The site quotes the band’s Erika Electra about the song’s meaning – according to her, “The song is sort of an existential look at my life. I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of time, and how it is a line, moving forward in one direction. As I’ve gotten older, I can’t help but look back on my life and see what I’ve done with my time, with my life. At the time I wrote the song, I was feeling quite alone and felt that the life I was living was nowhere near the life I thought I would lead… I was thinking about how many things I’ve wanted to do, or things I’ve wanted to say to people, but haven’t, and I was realizing that the time is NOW. Life is happening NOW. There is no time like the present to do and say all of those things.”
“It’s All Happening” is a powerful song that is not only lyrically evocative but musically lush. Hear it here and get We Sleep Again on your NACC chart!
