The haunting nostalgia of 'Dream'.

Emerging from the foggy streets of Seattle and currently residing in the vibrant cityscape of Los Angeles, MØZZIE is an artist whose music blends the raw energy of grunge, the melodic catchiness of alternative rock, and the dark allure of goth rock. With influences ranging from icons like Nirvana and My Chemical Romance, MØZZIE’s sound is a nostalgic homage to the 90s and 2010s, infused with a modern alternative rock twist that creates a unique ‘Alt-Rock Goth Grunge’ experience.


MØZZIE’s musical journey began during a particularly bleak winter in 2023, a time marked by self-imposed isolation and introspection. This period of solitude, coupled with a lifelong love for classic horror films and music from bands like My Chemical Romance, Bring Me The Horizon, and The Birthday Massacre, ignited a creative spark. The result is a catalog of music that delves into themes of isolation, depression, mental health, and loss, all wrapped in a storytelling style that could fit into the score of either horror films or your typical boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl breakup films.


Describing his sound to the uninitiated, MØZZIE likens his latest single “Dream” to a fusion of 2010s alternative rock anthems and 80s synth leads reminiscent of something you’d hear on Netflix’s Stranger Things mixed together in a post-punk gritty grunge sound. The track is steeped in goth-rock/alt-rock influences, with huge melodic distorted guitar riffs, moody synth soundscapes, and energetic drums that could easily serve as the soundtrack to a film like 500 Days of Summer. It’s a sonic journey that captures the intensity of his emotions and experiences, drawing listeners into a world where melancholy and yearning coexist.


‘Dream’ stands as a poignant testament to MØZZIE’s ability to channel personal pain into his art. The song is a raw exploration of losing someone and the subsequent realization that they only exist in dreams. Reflecting on a painful breakup, MØZZIE dreamt of both the song and the person he lost, finding that these dreams were the only place where their presence felt real. This haunting scenario inspired him to create a track that conveys a deep sense of nostalgia and the emptiness of moving through life without a loved one.


The lyrics of ‘Dream’ are crafted to evoke a yearning quality, with MØZZIE’s voice bringing forth the intense emotions he experienced. The chorus bursts forth with a powerful combination of loud guitars, synths, and drums, encapsulating the raw and unfiltered emotions that defined this period of his life. The accompanying music video visually narrates this story, capturing a gritty and almost cyberpunk, depressing vibe to the streets of Los Angeles, featuring a girl who symbolizes the lost love, ever-present in his thoughts and preventing him from finding peace.


MØZZIE’s ‘Dream’ is more than just a song; it’s a visceral experience that resonates with anyone who has faced loss and the haunting memories that linger. His ability to merge classic influences with contemporary sounds creates a refreshing and compelling addition to the alternative rock scene. As he continues to share his intimate experiences through his music, MØZZIE is poised to carve out a distinctive niche, captivating audiences with his hauntingly nostalgic and emotionally charged sound.


For those who find solace in the shadows of their past and seek energetic, melancholic music that speaks to the depths of their soul, MØZZIE’s ‘Dream’ is a must-listen. Dive into this auditory journey and let the haunting melodies and raw emotion envelop you.
