Sleep ∞ Over - 'Romantic Streams'

Sleep ∞ Over began as a project that started out with a few rough demos recorded live on a handheld tape recorder, but quickly turned their low-budget project that reluctantly stapled their sound as a seductive dream-pop band. Anticipation grows with every new release Sleep ∞ Over have put out within the past year. And it’s no surprise that this group have surpassed my expectations by how they have pushed their way out of their comfort zone. “Romantic Streams” reminds me not only of their first raw demos they released, but to how they have expanded their sound in order to fill the room with more liveliness and depth, and at the same time keep the intimacy that induced feelings of loneliness and emptiness. The same feeling is there in “Romantic Streams”, however, they have now added 80’s Casio synth loops to make this project into a band capable of growing and understanding how they can explore new territories without losing what they began with.
