Hey we’re back, bitches! Did you miss us? Sure you did. The Video Clip of The Week took a hiatus last Sunday, because we were having the time of our lives vacationing in Europe! But today we have a new music video treat for you: “Let the Light Flood In” courtesy of Lexington, Kentucky-based Dream the Electric Sleep. As you will soon discover, it was worth the wait.
So much lately, we find that “heavy music” has a vibrant pulse, but relies on screaming/growly vocals — which, no — or is just whiny, emo rock masquerading as the real thing — which we can spot a mile away. This is extremely unsatisfactory. Happily, Dream the Electric Sleep combine a spacey, heavy post-rock intensity with ’70s AOR and ’80s darkwave. Win win! The no-frills, black and white performance video tells you all you need to know about a super tight band that no doubt bring it on live. And doesn’t lead vocalist/guitarist Matt Page look just a little bit like a bearded Jim Morrison?
The band’s new album, Beneath The Dark Wide Sky, was recorded with Grammy Award-winning record producer Nick Raskulinecz in Nashville at Rock Falcon Studio, following up two independent releases, Lost and Gone Forever (2011) and Heretics (2014).
Beneath The Dark Wide Sky will be released via Mutiny Records on July 22nd, 2016. Enjoy!
