Opening with the Matt Corby-produced single Peeps With The GoodsCaught In A Reverie instantly snares with its sunny disposition, and effortless calm and charm. From percolating percussion and creamy vocals, Peeps With The Goods leads into acoustic folk magic (Train Left The Station), emphatic country hues (Places), undulating beauty (Look To The Stars) and poignant storytelling (I’m A Little Older). And whether showcasing their energetic sides on the percolations of For Your Love, dreamy melancholia on Sad Old Song, or full-blown shimmering joy on She Picks Flowers, there’s an inescapable thread that binds each track across Caught In A Reverie, with a gamut of stylistic hues on display, expertly helmed by The Dreggs, aka Paddy Macrae and Zane Harris themselves. “It’s finally here, our debut album,” shares Zane. “We’re so excited to get our album into the world. We wanted our debut album to be an eclectic collection of music, an album where you don’t have to skip any songs.”

An album many years in the making, and one hotly anticipated industry-wide, Caught In A Reverieelevates everything fans know and love about The Dreggs into a whimsical new plane of existence, with the pair also weaving themes of growth and change throughout the album; a fact which organically stemmed from their eclectic recording process. “We wanted each song to be somewhat different from the last but still have the classic “Dreggs” sound,” Zane reveals. “We recorded this album with multiple producers in various studios which actually helped us with the theme of keeping each song sounding that little bit different from the last. The name ‘Caught In A Reverie’ means you’re stuck in a daydream which was what we felt in the past couple of years. When we first started writing the album we wanted it to have a narrative, but we weren’t sure what that was going to be. As the songs started coming, we soon realised that it was going to be an album about personal growth. Not every song is about that though, there’s breakup songs, sad songs, songs you can scream in your car at the top of your lungs and of course songs you can sing and dance to. We have learnt so much from this album. We can’t wait to take what we’ve learnt into our future albums.”
From starting 2024 as triple j Unearthed’s first feature artist for the year to now releasing their long-awaited debut album Caught In A ReverieThe Dreggs are only just getting started as they continue to cultivate a global reputation for their trademark brand of indie-folk. Hailing from the Sunshine Coast, The Dreggs catapulted from the release of their debut single Give Myself To You back in 2017 into one of Australia’s most in-demand live acts, alongside having their debut track also certified Gold in Australia in 2023. Selling over 15,000 tickets in Australia alone last year with their largest ever headline and regional tours, and mesmerising crowds of around 10,000 with their sets at Spilt Milk Festival, The Dreggs are undeniably the hottest ticket in town, with their recently announced album release week shows selling out in 48 hours – purely off the back of an Instagram post. And it’s not just at home that The Dreggs love runs deep, with the duo also continuing to turn heads overseas, with their return to the UK and Europe this May set to deliver their biggest international headline shows to date.
