Sleeptalk Release Music Video for Crisp New single “Bright Eyes”

LA-based electro-pop quartet Sleeptalk‘s debut album has arrived via Artery Recordings and the band has released an accompanying music video for the single “Bright Eyes”. The short and crisp track is an innocent song about an infatuation that finally blossoms.

Vocalist Anthony Fitzpatrick says “It’s about being with the girl you have wanted to be with for so long and realizing you both were meant to be together.

The video uses footage the band shot while they were on their most recent tour. Hotel room jam sessions, meeting fans, and parking lot footraces gone wrong are a few highlights.

After self-releasing their debut EPs Pure, a straight-laced indie rock offering and Young, the more experimental spaced-out release, the band sought to marry the best qualities of both on Sleeptalk. Fitzpatrick says “It has exactly the sound we were searching for, it’s not rushed or forced in anyway.”

Sleeptalk is available now on iTunesMerchNow, and all other digital retailers.

It’s about those nights where the only thing to look forward to is the rest of the night. The type of night when congenial is not only a word but a lifestyle. Stumbling around, lighting continuous cigarettes and enjoying a group of friends where nothing can go wrong, except the end of the night.

Stream Doombird's New Album Early

11751934_975365525839302_1475617516278012033_n

Indie/electronic band Doombird from Sacramento are streaming their new album Past Lives now on Soundcloud. The psychedelic synth-pop offering will be released via Gold Standard Records (owned by Artery Recordings) on 12/30 and includes tracks that were recently featured in the TV shows Blood & Oil (ABC), Stitchers (Freeform), How to Get Away with Murder (ABC), as well as the indie film I Live for You.

The album was created within a little over a year,” says vocalist Kris Anaya. “The theme we tried to capture was more of a dark dance electronic record with a haunting voice. The lyrical content within the record focuses mainly on my struggles with anxiety. Even while I was recording the record I was suffering with it. Mainly the inspirations fall in between a lot of Ambient music as well as Electronic Dance music i.e (Tim Hecker, Caribou, Bibio). I personally believe this record vibes well on a rainy day or when you are taking a hike in the woods.

Anaya (who is also the former frontman of the indie band An Angle) began Doombird alongside Joseph Davancens in 2010. After a couple of unofficial releases and Davancens spending some time as a touring member of Tycho, the two collaborated with Aram Deradoorian (Geographer), Mike Sparks (Mr. Metaphor), Dusty Brown, and Arlene Deradoorian (Foster The People) to record Past Lives. The ten track offering was mixed and mastered by Robert Cheek (Band of HorsesDeftonesChelsea Wolfe). When performing live, Anaya and Davancens are accompained by Ben Edrington, Cory Phillips, and Fernando Oliva.

Pre-order Past Lives on iTunes.

Singer-songwriter Kris Anaya and producer/multi-instrumentalist Joseph Davancens want to chart new psychic territory in music. They first collaborated as Doombird in 2010 with a self-titled, self-released full-length album featuring a twelve-piece chamber orchestra. Two years later they swapped their orchestral ambitions with conceptual ones on the synth-heavy Cygnus, an album that explored the deeply personal emotional lives of historical figures through Anaya’s perspective. Now, a more mature and experienced Doombird has synthesized these parallel and distinct aesthetics with Past Lives, their official debut. For this recording, Anaya and Davancens found creative seclusion in the foggy hills of Stinson Beach, California, alongside musicians Mike Sparks, Aram and Arlene Deradoorian and Dusty Brown. There they transmuted moody, melodic Synth Pop into clockwork Krautrock and oceanic ambient textures. Over powerful rhythms, Anaya’s singing floats through the mist like the fleeting voices in the psyche. His lyrics invite listeners to fall madly in love or lose themselves in madness. Past Lives lingers on existential questions. Should I sleep? Should I dream? What’s the use?

Sleeptalk Sign Deal with Gold Standard Records

sleeptalk_2017

LA space-rock quintet Sleeptalk has inked a deal with Gold Standard Records, a label owned by Artery Recordings. The group celebrated the signing by premiering a music video for their new single “Indio California” and announcing plans for a 2017 full-length. The video, which was directed and shot by Shadow Born Group, portrays the idea of not being afraid to express yourself and to always know there is light at the end of the tunnel. The lyrics, however, are inspired by an annual concert series that the band regularly attends.

‘Indio, California’ is a love song,” says vocalist Anthony Fitzpatrick. “The song is based off experiences at the Coachella Music Festival. Every year myself and a large group of friends gather together and camp out at the festival. When you step onto those Polo fields you instantly gain this positive/beautiful energy, It feels like that is the only place in the world. ‘Indio, California’ is about those experiences. The type of experiences everyone longs for.

“Indio, California” is available now on iTunes.

About Sleeptalk:
Hailing from Southern California, Sleeptalk formed from the ashes of the now defunct band Like Giants. After the disbandment in 2013, vocalist Anthony Patrick and bassist Paul McGill found themselves pining for a new sound that stretched beyond the confines of their previous group. Joined by Jason Fitzpatrick (guitar), Justin Melchor (guitar) and Jacques Harmandjian (drums), the quintet make use of strong, haunting hooks that weave into atmospheric melodies. The self-described “space rock” sound creates the framework for Fitzpatrick’s alluring lyrics of sex and youthful love which can be heard all throughout the debut EP Pure and the follow-up Young. At the end of 2016, the band inked a deal with Gold Standard Records, a company owned and operated by Artery Recordings. They released a music video for the single “Indio, California” and announced plans for 2017 full-length.

Crystal Lake Release Cover of “Wide Eyed” by The Ghost Inside

CRYSTAL_LAKE_PROMO

You have likely already heard about the horrific accident last November involving a bus carrying The Ghost Inside that left all of the band members in critical condition and tragically claiming the lives of two crew members. Today, Tokyo’s Crystal Lake has released a cover of The Ghost Inside’s “Wide Eyed” and will be donating all profits directly to the band to help support their medical expenses and recovery.

We had a chance to tour with The Ghost Inside in Japan three years ago,” says the band. “When we heard this news, we, like all of you, were so shocked and at a loss for words. We strongly felt that we must do something to help support The Ghost Inside, as a band and simply as their friends from the other side of the world.

The band continues in a statement to AP, “Through these tough times, The Ghost Inside has been posting heartfelt messages and photos of them in recovery, and witnessing their positive attitude and strength to recover has taught us what being a band is all about. ‘Wide Eyed’ is one of our favorite tracks from ‘Dear Youth’ and Vigil’s lyrics about how they must keep moving forward with strong will and faith, no matter how hard the situation is, was truly inspiring to us. It is an honor to have this opportunity to give our words and hearts as Crystal Lake. This song encouraged us when we needed to look up. We don’t know how helpful this can be, but we will be so happy if this project means something to The Ghost Inside. We gave our best shot to breathe our hope and emotion into this great song in Crystal Lake’s way, so we hope everyone who reads this will take a listen and help support The Ghost Inside during this time of need.

The song is available for purchase here and donations can be made directly at https://www.gofundme.com/aqb5umd8. Crystal Lake’s latest album The Sign is available through Artery Recordings on iTunes.
