Indie Spotlight: The Undercover Dream Lovers

Posted in News on January 28, 2020

The Undercover Dream Lovers is the one-man synth-pop project of singer/songwriter, Matt Koenig. Having navigated his entire career as an independent act, Koenig’s self-produced and mostly self-written sound is influenced by acts like Tame Impala, The Beatles, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Daft Punk. The Pittsburgh-born, Los Angeles-based artist sees himself as a bridge between eras, combining themes and techniques from the past with forward-thinking sounds. The debut album from The Undercover Dream Lovers is set for February 2020 and was recorded at Koenig’s L.A. home. The LP’s first single, “A Way Out,” was described by i-D Magazine as a bridge between Koenig’s previous releases and his new disco-inspired record, which is meant to create an energized, groovy live show. The latest UDL single, “You Don’t Have to be Lonely,” was released on January 16 and is quickly becoming one of Koenig’s most-streamed tracks on Spotify. Having toured with Parcels, Her’s, L’Imperatrice, STRFKR, and Poolside last year, The Undercover Dream Lovers look forward to touring in support of the new album. With shows already booked across the US and Canada, 2020 is shaping up to be a dream come true.
