The opening song on ‘In the Shape of a Dream' sets this new record off right. “Ocean Front apt.” was likely chosen to lead the Michigan native ayokay's debut album due to its' smooth introduction. Reverby minimal guitar is sampled over light synth and pads for a deep tone that settles you in for more. As the album progresses ayokay steadily builds the energy, bringing more indie dance influence alongside his pop songwriting talents.
Next to the pop hits there are a few more low-key gems throughout. So don't overlook any of the shorter or featureless tracks such as the outro, “Something Familiar.” Get comfortable and dive into ayokay's ‘In the Shape of a Dream' right here.
