Bio

Melding strong instrumental hooks, ambient rhythmic textures and the prominent vocal strength of front man Caleb Hodges, Art of Sleeping’s live reputation in their hometown goes before them, resulting in an admirable and devoted following of fans via online networks. Both ‘Empty Hands’ and 'Above the Water' sees current, go-to producer, Yanto Browning (The Medics, Tara Simmons, The Jungle Giants, The Belligerents) take the helm as a first taste of their EP release planned for later this year. // Facebook // www.facebook.com/theartofsleeping // Itunes // http://itunes.apple.com/au/artist/art-of-sleeping/id503889254 // Youtube // http://www.youtube.com/user/artofsleeping?feature=watch // SHOWS // **visit facebook for info...

This is a big epic, indie rock track. It' all here - soaring guitars soaked in reverb, military drums, emotive vocals and a bombastic middle break-down with a big guitar solo. It's a tried and true formula and these boys have done it well.

This is becoming a kind of ever-present sound in Australia - somewhere between Boy & Bear and The Temper Trap. But being a class with those two bands cannot be a bad thing, especially when it's executed as well as this.

The likes of Husky and Boy & Bear need to make friends with these cats quick, or else they'll find Art of Sleeping snapping at their cathartic, folk-rock heels!
