Dream Lake displays the complicated nature of love in their new video for “In The Lights.” The Felicia Boudrée-directed video shows a young couple in love, as they explore the streets of Sweden. From romantic kisses to fueled arguments, the visual reflects different facets of everyday relationships. The enthralling visual complements the tune’s dream-like rhythms, which are filled with piano melodies and soaring harmonies.

Check out the official video below!

“In The Lights” is one of the highlights of their self-titled EP, released in December 2013. Dream Lake is a Swedish synth-pop duo comprised of Isabella Svärdstam and Niklas Willar Lidholm. They describe their music as “expressing the emotional state that oscillates between dream and reality. Melancholic tones and lyricism, combine in serene beauty.”
