Dreamcatcher is ending an era, or so they say with the release of their latest mini album. The 7 member Rock-influenced girl group makes their comeback with “Piri” which, according to the internet, is a flute-like instrument made of bamboo, often used in Classical music. With that introduction, I’m hoping this song has some Classical elements and maybe is a bit like Symphonic Metal because the only thing that would make Dreamcatcher any cooler would be a symphony backing their already Metal sound.
I’m unsure of what is happening in the video and when this video takes place in the timeline of the Dreamcatcher Universe. There’s a ton of symbolism happening throughout the video such as the white room, the ladder, clocks, dolls, phones, and much more. Like I said, I don’t actually know what’s happening, but I believe this takes place before everything else. I could be wrong, but in the “Chase Me” music video, there is a doll that takes a huge role in the story and this might be where the doll and I believe it’s Dami trade places, maybe exchanging souls. I don’t know this story super well, so don’t attack me for not knowing.
There’s a lot that could be examined here, but I’m not the person that should be doing that examining because, first of all, I don’t know all of their names and I don’t know the story and am terrible and finding hidden clues and reading into subtle cues. I hope someone will take this video and the entire Nightmare era and dissect it.
The song had the “piri” or flute sound throughout as a driving force for the song. It was incredibly creepy and haunting but did the song good. There was a moment in the chorus, I believe, where there was a call and response that was happening between the flute and the girls chanting which gave me goosebumps. The crunch of the guitar was very nice too. It was in your face, but not too overpowering as to wash out the rest of the track. I also enjoyed the fact that the chorus was a little more complex than other Dreamcatcher choruses. Not a whole lot, but just a bit more complexity in the chorus.
What do you think of Dreamcatcher’s final Nightmare comeback? What genre do you think they will dive into next? Do you think they’ll stick to the Metal sound within another realm of dream catching? Let me know in the comments what you think. Thank you for your support and I’ll see you in the next review.
