In summer 2010 DGRS started to record their album "Dream On Dreamy" after they had written new songs - "The Great Big Void" & "Roads Again" - for a gig at The Mayflower Pub in Tranås. Unlike before, when they created songs from the cosy perspective of "having a beer on the couch in a laid back atmosphere", they saw reason and understood that they wanted to give higher priority to a sound that works perfectly when played live.

Just when the album began to assume a shape the worst case scenario happened: a complete data loss, which means a minor desaster to a band which relies pretty much on pre-recorded material. The only chance was to start from scratch and that's what they did. Finally in March 2011 they did the final mixing of their album, that was createdat a point of their lives where both guys felt that they were more than done with their tiny hometown and that it was the right time for a change - for something bigger and even more for something new.

DEGREES themselves explain that this feeling is portrayed at best in the songs "Oakland Mountain High" and "At Least Rock & Roll Won't Leave A Hole In My Back". "Dream On Dreamy" is about magic, headaches, lack of sleep, black dreams and the body temperatures. And to help with getting an idea of their sound: open-hearted naive, out-and-out nostalgic, here comes a well done, fluid style of writing album that can be named relaxed Indie-Pop.
