Video: Sleepy Sun – “The Lane”

Northern California’s Sleepy Sun– whose music has been described as “a shape-shifting mess of psych-garage slime” (SPIN) and “the darkly foreboding side of garage psych” (Stereogum), has announced their fourth LP, Maui Tears, to be released January 28th via Dine Alone Records. Along with seven brand new songs, the album features both tracks from Sleepy Sun’s recent 7″, “11:32” and “The Lane.” Today, the band shares their video for album opener “The Lane,” which takes us on a tripped-out journey through the clouds, the ocean, the galaxy, and beyond. Maui Tears will be available for pre-order beginning December 10th, and all pre-orders will come with an instant grat of album track “Galaxy Punk.”

Having formed six years ago, Sleepy Sun already has three LPs and a handful of singles & EPs under their belt. Maui Tears finds the band pushing boundaries with their experimental songwriting, exploring new territory and showcasing the diversity of their sound. A combination of catchy, psych-tinged melodies, softer, dreamier tracks, and some of the band’s heaviest material to date, the album is a dynamic collection of songs from a new, bolder version of a band that’s torn down walls and built up confidence.

Known for their incessant touring, Sleepy Sun has toured with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, the Black Angels, and most recently, City and Colour. They have a handful of live dates left on their current tour and will be announcing 2014 dates soon. Maui Tears cover art and track listing, and stay tuned for more new music coming soon!
