Modern Dream – ‘are we a part of the machine or not?’

NYC-born, Israeli-raised queer artist and producer EREZ wears her heart on her sleeve and will make history doing so. Modern Dream is her first 2021 single that in our opinion will guarantee her a breakthrough this year.  

A gorgeous piano melody lays the foundation for EREZ’s raspy, husky voice that’s equally as delicate as it is gritty. Much like a house track in a club, the chorus hits you in a way that makes you feel it throughout your whole body. Modern Dream is an ode to the technological era we live in and its influence on our lives. Social media made us sad and depressed and made us base our self-worth on our professional achievements while our worth should be determined by our actions and good hearts. Modern Dream is quite perfectly a song of the time.

 “Modern Dream is just me self reflecting and questioning the place and power of technology and socials in my life and our collective lives as humans – therefore the constant use of the word ‘we’ and not ‘I’ or ‘you’ or ‘they’. I’m trying to get across a simple question – are we part of the machine or not? This hunger for fame, validation, and recognition is often external and learned. Who is teaching us to crave this? The machine. The machine that makes money off us thinking that this is the route to happiness, success, and fulfillment. While the truth is, those things really only come from within. (Easier said than done yea). Yes, we all are looking to be validated by our friends, family, and peers but to what extent?”
