Neon Dreams – House Party

One of Canada’s finest up and coming alternative pop outfits, Neon Dreams return today with a song that takes a philosophical look at that time in your life, when you’re still a teen and start to learn more about who you are from socialising with your peers.

When I was a teenager, experiencing party culture for the first time, I wouldn’t really say anything and would just sit with my thoughts. But at house parties I’d meet these weird people like me, and we’d have these great conversations. I remember having this conversation with a girl about life, and we started joking about hangovers and how much we hate them. She said, ‘hangovers are just borrowing from the happiness of tomorrow, and that’s why the next day always sucks.’

The song’s about wanting to feel accepted and yearning to be like the carefree people at the party. The person smiling over there—I never smile, I lost my smile—and I want to get back to that place. When I was a teenager I realised I needed to learn how to get myself to the place I wanted to be, because I felt way too insecure for what I wanted to become.

Taken from the upcoming album ‘The Happiness of Tomorrow’ which is out later in the month.
