Dream Chambers' The Longest Night reflects the continued journey from Jess Chambers' 'former life as a singer-songwriter' into more experimental territory, featuring re-imaginings of folk songs deconstructed and condensed into potent forms with sonic beds of synthesiser and granulated vocals.

Influences include the vocal works of film composer Hildur Guðnadóttir and modular synthesists such as Caterina Barbieri and Hiro Kone for their expression of complex, sometimes dissonant or paradoxical, emotional states.

Themes on the album range from a longing for love and connection to aspirations of transcendence beyond the mundanity of daily life - an impulse that drew Jess to synthesisers: 'I experience the sound of electricity and oscillators as the most evocative of that transcendent experience'.
