As we draw closer to the April 15 release of his new self-titled album by Flying Nun Records, New Zealand psychedelic rock solo artist Zen Mantra (Sam Perry, also a member of dream-pop act Yumi Zouma) has just shared a new single titled 'Maybe I'll See You In My Dreams'. With its buoyant vocal hook drifting across guitars that sway like a field of tall grass in the wind, 'Maybe I'll See You In My Dreams' is wistful slice of poppy psychedelia. As part of this, it perfectly captures the feeling of summer fading into autumn and the reflection and contemplation that comes with the changing of the seasons.

You can pre-order Zen Mantra in vinyl and digital formats here and here respectively. If you're in New Zealand, you can catch Zen Mantra and his backing band playing around the North Island this month.
