The Dream Eaters blend the ethereal vocals of Jake Zavracky and Elizabeth LeBaron in interwining streams of haunting melodies. While they draw from a number of influences including dream pop, psychedelic, folk and rock genres, their sound stands in a category of its own; subdued and somehow also urgent; cutting edge yet classic.
The Dream Eaters story began in 2015. After playing clubs with various projects and languishing in obscurity for years in his hometown of Boston and later in New York City, Zavracky decided to stop performing completely. Then, while working as a bartender at a dive bar in Brooklyn he met LeBaron, another bartender who had just relocated from Vancouver Island, BC. Discovering that they were fellow musicians, they began to collaborate and found an instant connection. As a composer and producer, Zavracky began writing songs for LeBaron to sing alone but soon found their voices blended together in harmony to create a wholly unique sound. The duo realeased several singles and EPs under the name “Jake and Elizabeth”, changing it to The Dream Eaters before the release of their self-produced debut EP “Five Little Pills”. A bare-bones production that they self-recorded and released, it was a precursor to the sound that is now fully realized on their full-length debut album, We Are A Curse, which was released on April 14th, 2017.
“The vocals of Jake Zavracky and Elizabeth LeBaron interweave with such perfection it is as if they emanate from the same body” (Overblown, UK). “Dead On The Inside might be the most stunning and gorgeous protest song you will ever hear.”” (The Revue, Canada). “There is an unshakable sorrow adorning their vocals, but they remain luscious and sticky. Tightly knit harmonies characterize nearly every track–allowing them to utterly inhabit a ghostly world of varied human sentiments and encounters.” (PopDust). “Neanderthals is an impressive project from a quickly rising duo with heaps of potential.” (Obscure Sound)
