Demo Taped Releases Synth Ballad ‘That Dream I Had’

With a nostalgic R&B sound that is built around upbeat rhythms, soft vocals and synth melodies combined with electronic textures, 21-year-old Atlanta native, Demo Taped, aka Adam Alexander, is returning with the first of new music after his sophomore EP, “Momentary” via 300 Entertainment. Today, he arrives with his next installment of music, “That Dream I Had,” the perfect melody for the progression of autumn into winter. The expression of hopeful emotions, realization, and mystically passionate daydreams heard from Demo Taped showcases how personal the song is to him. “It’s really just about learning how to love someone without being in love with them. It’s definitely one of the most bittersweet songs I’ve written. The sudden change has always been something I’ve struggled with, but this song is me trying to look on the bright side of things.”

Prior to the release of “That Dream I Had,” Demo Taped teamed up with Jaira Burns for single, “Everyone Else”, a gorgeously introspective song that details the woes of unrequited love in the modern age. The track discusses dating, finding friendships, networking, and being avidly plugged in during the digital age of apps while still figuring out personal strides.

The Atlanta native, who is a big proponent of destigmatizing mental illness in the black community, aims to normalize mental illness and the discussion of it.  Demo Taped uses his music as a platform and many of his tracks deal specifically with his own troubles. With an impressive back catalog, a tour alongside Nao and WET, hand-selection from Sylvan Esso to remix their tracks as well as being named by Pigeons and Planes as a Top 20 Artist Under 20Demo taped has solidified himself as one of Atlanta’s most promising young artists.
