ARTIST / BAND: Walking Sleep
MP3: Final Chapter / "In A Dream"
FILE UNDER: Glam / Acousmatic / Tape music
INFO: Walking Sleep originally formed in 2007 under the name The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra. The six-piece band came together as a natural extension of lead singer Hunter Curra’s exploratory songwriting, in which he combined male and female vocal harmonies, classic rhythms, and curiously dark lyrics. Drawing influence across genres and decades, their songs include echoes of the melancholy psychedelic pop of The Zombies, the uptempo stomp of classic Motown, and the moody melodicism of Fleetwood Mac, but placed in a modern context, akin to like-minded bands like Belle & Sebastian and The Shins.
