After the success of the sold out ‘Crazy’ tour in January this year that left stunned audiences in their wake, Art of Sleeping release their latest single ‘Voodoo’ and announce an extensive national tour. Fans across the country will be able to hear the first glimpses of their eagerly awaited debut album – set for release mid-2015 via Dew Process / Universal.
Capturing the band’s expansive arrangements and intoxicating lyricism Art of Sleeping’s latest single ‘Voodoo’ is a superstitious anthem that sets a sensual soundtrack of unreciprocated heartbreak. Drums rattle, guitar’s soar and an imaginary wind howls as the song recounts a painful, wild love affair.
“The absolute power of something intangible. You fear it. You crave it. You love it. You hate it. Courage or insanity? There is always a madness in love. But without madness it would be calculated and false. I would sooner choose to flail at the mercy of the wind than to be smothered, safe and not feel a thing.” – Caleb Hodges
Known for their immersive live performances as much for their seductive sounds, the Brisbane five-piece will be embarking on their biggest national tour to date across 6 states alongside Adelaide’s singer-songwriter Jesse Davidson and Melbourne’s dream-pop multi-instrumentalist Sunbeam Sound Machine. Tour begins June 5th with tickets on sale Wed 18 March.
