Mr. Dream - Crime

New York post-punk trio Mr. Dream, one of our favorite new bands of 2010, keep things moving in the right direction in ’11 with this new single “Crime.” Drummer Nick Sylvester calls it “a pop song … punk but with big dumb arena-type moves.” That’s part of what makes these guys special — an ability to honestly dissect themselves without over-thinking it, to pull off “dumb arena-type moves” in smart ways, and to offer a sound that’s fun but never frivolous. Unlike a bunch of pretenders with messy hair and half-understood Black Flag tattoos, they can use the word “punk” without the accompanying douche chills.

“Crime”’s being released as a digital single on 2/8 via iTunes. It’ll be backed with a cover of Fang’s “Law And Order.” Look for their forthcoming full-length debut Trash Hit on 3/1.
