In episode #155 of The XS Noize Podcast, Mark Millar meets Ed Vyvyan and Tom Rea from dream rock four-piece junodream about their debut album, Pools Of Colour.

Lined ten tracks deep, the band’s debut album, Pools of Colour, is about coming to terms with insignificance. The profoundly immersive dream-rock LP asks essential questions, delving into the more insidious and disconnected parts of modernity and the human condition, presenting a band more interested in a cohesive, egoless whole than the perspective of four separate members. In sacrificing the desires of the self, they say, your creative collaboration becomes more fruitful and the world around you more colourful.

Sharing a deep connection resulting from being best friends for a decade, alongside a DIY formula at the heart of everything they do, junodream is building a captivating world within their tight community of fans and collaborators.

In the five years since their inception, junodream has amassed nearly half a million monthly listeners on Spotify and over 23 million collective streams on DSPs, forging blistering and immersive live performances, including a rapturous set at this year’s The Great Escape Festival in Brighton.

In this interview, Ed and Tom discuss their fantastic debut album, Pools of Colour and lots more. Listen to episode #155 of The XS Noize Podcast with junodream – BELOW:
