Dream Lake’s “Let Us Stay In The Light” Video: Watch

Swedish pop duo Dream Lake are back with a new video for their latest single, “Let Us Stay In The Light.” The romantic and ethereal tune gets an equally whimsical visual, as it displays friends and couples enjoying each other’s company. It is all glossed over with a charming filter that will transport you to the mid-’60s. Check it out up top!

Dream Lake caught the attention of the music world with their self-titled EP, released in December 2013. They are 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.”
