Dreamers – a New York City trio comprising guitarist and vocalist Nick Wold, bass and keys player Marc Nelson and drummer Jacob Lee Wick – have been delivering an infectious barrage of indie rock since their inception in 2014.
For their latest release, True Crime, the trailblazing three-piece have teamed up with LA alt/indie artist DeathbyRomy, serving up the super-melodic hooks and sophisticated arrangements for which they've come to be known.
Wold joins us in today's episode of Sick Riffs to take you through the track's ultra-catchy arpeggiated main riff, and he does so wielding a Fender '77 Mustang electric guitar through a UAD [Universal Audio] digital emulation of a ProCo RAT distortion pedal.
Sick Riffs is a Guitar World video series designed to help guitarists affected by the coronavirus. Self-isolating players around the world have each filmed a lesson where they teach you one of their own guitar riffs, up close and personal. If you dig the lesson, we encourage you to buy music and merch from the artist or stream their music.
