Kay and Dan Didier and live footage from the Joe Wong + Nite Creatures performance at Hollywood Forever Cemetery last fall. Look for Joe Wong + Nite Creatures on the road this October.
"Dreams Wash Away" is featured in the emotional season finale of Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward and comedian Duncan Trussell's recently released and widely-praised Netflix original series The Midnight Gospel, which Wong also composed the score for. The song appears during a heartbreaking and intimate conversation between Trussell and his mother, Deneen Fendig, who was dying from metastatic breast cancer at the time of the recording. Trussell describes "Dreams Wash Away" as "an atomic blast of mystical sonic light!," which perfectly encapsulates the episode's themes: ego death and coming to terms with mortality.
Netflix also recently shared a Titmouse-produced animated video for "Dreams Wash Away" featuring re-contextualized elements from the show with the characters and backgrounds combined in new ways not seen in the show. Watch the animated video for "Dreams Wash Away" here:
