The Intriguing Style of Harmony Dreamers Shines on “I Come From Earth (Nashville Jam)”

Harmony Dreamers are one of the most interesting musical acts to have appeared in recent years, especially in the music scene. Their single “I Come from Earth,” received a warm reception, and this has made it a big mainstay in many alternative stations. Even we were big fans of the single, so now that Harmony Dreamers have released a country-tinged variant titled “I Come From Earth (Nashville Jam),” you know we have to give it a look.

“I Come From Earth (Nashville Jam),” carries with it the same humorous ideas that the original does, but as the name suggests, it throws in a bit of that Nashville flare to give it more flavor. Behind the country-style acoustic guitars and sweet riffs, you’ve still got all the eclectic sounds and interesting production choices giving the song a ‘best of both worlds’ kind of feel.

The writing is still as funny and clever as ever, with Harmony Dreamers really putting a lot of clever little inflections that give such a strong personality to the tune. ‘Weird’ is a style that’s rarely embraced in the Country and Americana scenes, and it’s really great to see Harmony Dreamers bringing a bit of that into the mix here.

Of course, with more country-themed sound comes a different overall vibe. Where the original version  of the song revels in its own unique sound giving it an almost alien feel, “I Come from Earth (Nashville Jam),” grounds the tone a little more. Things change from a simple, sci-fi tone to the sound of a storyteller, one with an eccentric sense of humor.

But, how does it actually feel like to listen to “I Come From Earth (Nashville Jam”? Well, to be perfectly honest, we feel like the song’s just as much of a good time as its original. It adds just enough to the mix to give the Nashville variant a personality and tone of its own, while still maintaining all the charm of the original. There’s a lot to like here, and Harmony Dreamers do a great job.

So overall, we find this one to be another big success for Harmony Dreamers. It’s tough to really craft unique singles over and over again, and it’s even more difficult to rework something you already made into a new mold. They pull it off with flying colors here, and it only makes us more excited to see what Harmony Dreamers has in store for us in the future.

Volume adds to this for the piece virtually works itself into an outright crescendo. Many different parts of the group makes sure to intermingle creating this vast expanse of territory, the kind of thing that feels quite potent.
