London psych-popper .imp is back with the new track Lifedreamer, along with a vibey new lyric video. The dreamy new song is a must for fans of Tame Impala and Spiritualized. Check it out below now…

“The first section of the song was written while I was whacked out on morphine and recovering from surgery, so it has quite a dreamy feel,” explains James Hargreaves, AKA .imp. “I’m a big believer in the interpretation of a lyric being down to the listener so I don’t want to get too explicit in its meaning – but in essence it’s about keeping positive in adversity while you’re going through a difficult patch. When the trumpets kick in and the bigger musical section hits, that’s about being where you want to be, doing just what you want to do – you’ve fought your battles and your demons and you’re ready for the joy and celebration that comes with that. For me that’s being in the mountains – clean air, stunning scenery and so far removed from the grime of the city that is my day to day living. It was the only place I wanted to be when I was being fixed up and looked after by these amazing people in the NHS.”
