Silent Dream is an electronic, IDM sounding album with no typical song structure, and no lead vocals, only vocal sampling of Sara Savery aka. Drop The Gun and Tobias Wilner. This is in big contrast to the last 5 Blue Foundation albums, that more and less is structured around dreamy pop songs.

Tobias Wilner & Bo Rande was searching for a more spontaneous, experimental and direct sound.The album has lots in common with Tobias Wilner other projects Bichi and New York United. With this album they wanted to give room to the layers in their music that normally gets hidden in production, and less focus on a lead vocal. It’s process music that begins in one place to never return.

The song “Hrönn” with hunting strings is a tribute to a Icelandic girl. A picture of her character, of her struggle going through life trying to change it for the better. It’s very much about her determination to make a change
