Sand Castles

by White Trash Black Magic

 

"Sand Castles" came to me in a lucid dream while crossing the Atlantic Ocean, on my way to Denver.

I fell asleep on the plane, and in my dream I heard a song. I woke myself up and started to write down the lyrics on the first piece of paper I could find.

Arriving late at night in Denver to my new home, I went straight to bed.
Upon waking in the morning, I felt the bed would be better suited in the opposite corner, so I pushed the heavy king sized bed across the room.
Laying underneath the bed was an instrument, an omnichord, and as I picked it up and started to play it, I immediately felt it belonged to the song in my dream.

This is how "Sand Castles" and my band White Trash Black Magic came to happen.
