DRÆMINGS which is the creative project of Kimi Recor also comes with unusual backstory. Born on the outskirts of Munich, she discovered music listening to Ace of Base on a cassette tape. Having spent a moment in Colorado, she left for San Francisco and it was that time where she immersed herself in guitar, keys, bass, and drums and began playing around the local scene. But then NYC found her and so did addiction and with that, she returned to the west coast settling in Los Angeles with good results.
The indie pop queen wrote and recorded the five-song demo entirely on her own and Sumerian Records stumbled upon the demo’s Soundcloud page and offered her a deal.
The track Area 51 is about being in love with somebody who’s also a musician,” says Recor. “When you love someone who’s a traveling artist you always know that person is going to leave. It’s vagabond love. The two of you are never going to be in the same place at the same time for long. You let people go and you’re okay with it. I’ve always been with artists and had to accept they’re going to love their art more than they love me because I love my art more than anyone.”
