One of the best things about lockdown has been the lie-ins. I’ve been snoozing like a newborn baby whenever and wherever I want. Unfortunately, official health guidelines warn against oversleeping, as this can have adverse effects upon the physical and mental state of the individual. Well doctors, today I’ve discovered proof that you can’t get too much sleep! That evidence comes in the form of Bleach Lab’s brand new single, Sleep.
Sleep is a mesmerizing and dreamy release that cements Bleach Lab’s reputation as one of the best new indie bands around. Their dream-pop style is familiar to fans of the genre, and yet has its own distinct quality that sets the group apart. Full of intricate, alluring melodies, this is a well-crafted song that soothes the ears into a state of unbridled relaxation.
Lyrically, Sleep is a compelling piece of work. It speaks of the end of a long term relationship, and the various trials and tribulations that come with such an experience. When you share your life with another human so deeply, it’s almost as if a bit of you dies when the connection ends; the part that believed it would last forever, so tied to the past that it can’t travel forward with you into the future. This is a highly relatable topic to many and will resonate with listeners young and old. For your daily dose of introspective dream-pop, check out Sleep now! It’s a cracker.
