Puppy Dog is the first release since Dreamer Boy’s 2018 indie breakout project, Love, Nostalgia.

Dreamer Boy is the musical project of Zach Taylor, based out of the top musical city —Nashville, Tennessee. Bringing a soulful yet indie twist to pop music, Dream Boy also includes others such as producer Bobby Knepper, creative director Adam Alonzo, and manager Cody Clark. The single released in December 2019, Puppy Dog, is a perfect example of this uniquely designed style. And now it has a quirky music video to pair with it, nicely. With the fisheye lens, yellow hues, graininess, and each character’s quirkiness, the visuals cleverly demonstrate the dream-like state that comes along with loving someone who hasn’t completely noticed you yet.

Speaking of the new single, Dreamer Boy explained:

‘Puppy Dog’ is a moment in time for me. I opened every show of the Clairo tour with it and the release came right in the middle of my first project and my second. I wanted this song and now the video we’ve made to be a world of its own. I want this portrayal of Dreamer Boy to feel like a specific character unique to this song. Everything from the wardrobe, props and extras were intentional in building that recognition. I was inspired by 90s fisheye videos and Wes Anderson’s trademark character/wardrobe design. The masks were the first idea and everything started to make sense from there. This was such a fun video to make with my best friends playing the supporting roles of the extras and my right hand creative partner Adam shooting it.
