Neva Dinova announce release date for You May Already Be Dreaming.

Neva Dinova has completed their Saddle Creek debut, You May Already Be Dreaming CD/LP. The 12 song record is set for an April 8 release, with pre-orders beginning in the online store on February 26. Stay tuned for more info on the record and touring news!

Neva Dinova - You May Already Be Dreaming
It’s beyond fitting that Neva Dinova has found a new home at Saddle Creek. You May Already Be Dreaming, the band’s third full-length and first since 2005’s The Hate Yourself Change (Crank/Sidecho) is a lush, largely electric affair rich with the rural textures that pepper releases from the band’s Omaha contemporaries. Having been a staple in the scene since guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Jake Bellows and bassist Heath Koontz began collaborating in the early nineties, Neva Dinova (named after Bellows’ grandmother) have continually evolved their melancholic sound, making masterful use of counterbalanced melodies and poetic lyricism. Bellows began composing songs for You May Already Be Dreaming two years ago, but he and the band--including The Good Life drummer Roger Lewis--were fated to overcome a number of obstacles (including a busted eardrum resulting from a barroom tussle and a practice space flood) before tracking the album at a friend’s warehouse. From the spacious guitar washes of “A Man and His Dream” to the sweeping, dusty strength of “Clouds”, this is the band’s most fluid and realized effort to date.
