‘Don’t Wanna Wake Up’ tells a tale of love and desire. The likable tune contains a relatable narrative, enticing vocal interplay, and rich harmonies. Also, the Dahlstrom-produced instrumentation pairs soft synth lines with a groove-laden rhythm section.

Marie Dahlstrom has made a significant name for herself and is recognized for her warm, jazz-tinged, soulful R&B. She grew up listening to Edwyn Collins, Womack & Womack, and Gloria Gaynor. Also, during her teenage years, she cites Dwele, Musiq Soulchild, SWV, Dire Straits, Lucy Pearl, Erykah Badu, Kirk Franklin, and Fleetwood Mac as key points of inspiration in her musical upbringing.

Since then, she has been patient with her career, carefully plotting and building towards her first full-length body of work. “Don’t Wanna Wake Up” serves as a fantastic presentation to what listeners can expect to hear on Dahlstrom’s upcoming debut album, entitled, “Like Sand” (release date, May 22, 2020).
