Sync favourites Calva Louise have unveiled the video to accompany their latest beast of a track. Sleeper – which will appear on the imminent new Sync List update on Spotify – brings the usual combo of cyber-punk, bold brash guitars and venemous vocals that the Manchester-based three-piece have become known for.
Of the new track, lead singer Jess Allanic says: “We believe that it is quite common to sometimes feel as if you were a character from a movie, or even a video game, and it comes to a point when you begin to realize that you feel as if you are being dragged along by a current, like a leaf in the wind.
“Technology has developed so fast, even science fiction tells us that these new possibilities are just around the corner, where the character often faces virtual rules and wants to change them. If sometimes we feel like we are dreaming, then we could dream that we wake up, so we can see reality outside the game, for what it really is.”
Sleeper will feature on a brand new EP Interlude For The Borderline Unsettled, which will be released this winter and which marks the band’s first new material since the launch of debut album Rhinoceros in February.
The band will be performing all the new stuff – along with the rest – at four upcoming headline shows in December. You can catch them in Manchester (1 December), Glasgow (2), Birmingham (3) and London (4). Tickets here.
