Reception[edit]

auspOp described the song as a "glorious burst of dazzling pop sunshine". [3]

Larry Day from Music OMH said ""Sundream" skitters through the white-hot synth pads of '90s Ministry of Sound chillout compilations, Ibiza afterparties and the dawn breeze on a hangover. It's holiday hedonism encapsulated in 4:35 of blissed-out aural Bacchanalia."[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Katzki and Jackson Mullane and released on 15 April 2014. [5]
