I Dreamed I Dream

Alternative // Cork

I Dreamed I Dream are a genre-blending experimental band from Cork, influenced by everything ranging from harsh noise and drone to shoegaze, dreampop and classic girl groups.

Originally a 3 piece electronic band, the group released their debut single "Girlboss Gaslight Gatekeep" in 2021, described by Mike McGrath-Bryan as "nightmarish soundscaping, clashing with an acerbic recitation of the empty mantras that underpin the 'affirmations' that define the internal monologue of living in late-stage capitalism."

Since their first gig, supporting Silverbacks at Spilt Milk festival in late 2021, IDID have moved toward crafting a more cohesive, somnambulistic sound and live show, playing with the likes of Trá Pháidín and The Altered Hours.

As the group's exploratory ambitions grew, so did its membership. I Dreamed I Dream are:

Julie Landers - Vocals/drums
Claire Aherne - Bass
Elle Kelleher - Guitar
Niamh Hayes - Keys
Laura Dineen - Guitar/Clarinet
