With a barrage of adjectives and hyperbole, musicians describe themselves and seek to impress those unfamiliar with their work. Flowery expressions illustrate how their music transcends definition. This all, of course, is wasted space as ten seconds of a song can tell you more about a band than paragraphs will ever say.
Pretense aside, let us speak of Sleepwalking Home. A quartet from Tulsa, OK, the band consists of vocalist Michelle Ameen, guitarist Justin Huggins, bassist Trey Landis and drummer/vocalist Nick Barton. Sleepwalking Home blends elements of Hardcore, Progressive and Pop to ride a balance between the aggressive and beautiful.
There is an intelligence to the songwriting, while still maintaining unfettered energy and pop sensibility.
When asked to describe the music Ameen answered, “Our music, in a multitude of ways, hits emotional sweet spots deep beneath our hard surfaces and lyrically it gives everyone something to relate to.”
Sleepwalking Home is a group of people who genuinely enjoy each other’s company and value each other’s opinion. The bi-product of which seems to be really good music.
There we have it. Sleepwalking Home. A few paragraphs of, almost, exaggeration free information, but you know the drill. Take a listen and see what you think. I am betting you will like what you hear.
