Sleepwalkers delivers a parallel aural experience, shifting narratives populated by heroes and villains, lost love
and love found, neon landscapes and windswept skyscrapers. The follow-up to Sleepwalkers' '60s fantasia,
cult-favorite debut, Greenwood Shade (2014), "Wake Up" and "Reasons To Give Up In You" feel equally
effortless, backed by the band's facility with the structures and language of pop music. These specific
references, from Whitney Houston to Thin Lizzy, come so furiously fast and from so many different angles-
production, singing, writing, arrangement, engineering-that the songs are never weighed down or
overshadowed by their inspirations. An aesthetic based primarily on exhilaration.
