The Other End – Sleepwalking – Super World Indie Tune Of The Day. 5.12.2018
The Other End are probably the best new band we’ve heard in the past 12 months and Sleepwalking is another ephemeral beauty from the Norwegian duo. Everything we’ve come to expect from them is present and correct – Ida’s haunting, mesmeric vocals. The beautiful, fragile soundscapes created with the minimum of ingredients for maximum effect. Thankfully Sleepwalking has been released just in time for our 2018 best of (coming up soon!). The atmosphere of the song reflects the subject matter perfectly.
The band says ” Sleepwalking is a song about feeling like you exist in your own bubble, watching the world around you unfold and the people passing by. It’s about observing life around you, but not feeling like you are taking part in what is happening, although you are present.
We chose to pick up where we left with the EP, and stay somewhat within the same universe. The basis of the song was recorded live with guitar, drums, and vocals, but we also experimented with other elements during post-production, trying to create a bit of tension.”
Well, in our opinion it worked brilliantly. The single is out now on Diamond Club.
