There is no better time to dig into music you missed than right now, and Neon Dreams’ “Life Without Fantasies” deserves some love for so many reasons.
So what is “Life Without Fantasies”? Neon Dreams dig into frontman Frank Kadillac’s childhood for a story that will resonate with a lot of people.
“When you don’t fit in, it’s like your forced to see the world differently. These are the fantasies of a very uncool, unpopular kid,” Kadillac said.
Inspired by two of Kadillac’s favourite films–Napoleon Dynamite and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off–the video is the fourth written and directed by Frank Kadillac and friend Alex Gayaso, shot around Halifax and Toronto with drummer Adrian Morris.
“These fantasies were sparked from years of being picked on and desperately wanting to fit in. When I realized the effect that suppressed memories had on me, I started confronting everything I went through until I realized what I really want… I realized fantasies about money, girls and luxury are fun to think about but in reality those things don’t make you happy. All I want is some happiness and a little bit of pain to know what’s real.”
