The Dream That Woke is the hypnotic new release from Michigan bedroom-pop artist Wolves. The song is taken from her 5 track EP Lovesick Machine which is out now. The songwriting behind the song was therapeutic for Wolves, who wrote it in the midst of a heavy breakup. She says: “The song will always be a reminder of my ability to heal and grow.”

Wolves (Magdalen Fossum) was surrounded by musical influences at a very young age, at home with parents & older siblings who sing & play, and while running around her mother’s well-established music venue. She got her start singing and performing professionally at the age of 9 around some of Michigan’s finest indie/folk festivals & venues. With a primary focus on old jazz & folk music on the ukulele, she developed her unique voice, established a large regional following and YouTube presence, and grew her love of being on the stage. Hitting her teens brought obvious changes musically and she began focusing her energy on writing original songs, perfecting new instrumentation and developing her own style of atmospheric immersion, with former influences still present.

Now at age 20, Wolves is producing all of her own music; in 2021 alone, she has released 2 EP’s and 1 single that has cemented her as a promising young independent artist with dream-pop inclinations. Smoky vocals and edgy synth-forward production and songs fueled by feelings of emotional ambivalence, introspection, heartbreak, and innocent love, demonstrate Wolves ability to musically transfix.
