For the wishful hearts dancing in dive bars and backyards this summer, The Undercover Dream Lovers are laying sweet, sticky melodies over glittery synth-pop songs.

LA-based musician Matt Koenig has created an ethereal jukebox sound with his project The Undercover Dream Lovers, using a palette of groovy bass lines and reverb-soaked guitars. Koenig has a bright, curious approach to production and he channels timeless, tranquil, psychedelic pop in his new single “Can’t You Just See,” a love song for the lush and lonely. 

The hazy music video follows the psych-pop star through the motions of a night out, drifting between social moments of euphoria, anxiety and apathy, before he ends up passed out on the dance floor.

“I tried to imagine all the moments of a night from the perspective of a fly on the wall”, he told Noisey.
