Sleepy Hahas bring heavy duty psych-fuzz sounds and a series of black and white figures, shapes and characters that may or may not have some deep meaning that I’m not quite able to fathom in the video for new single Deep River. Taken from their second album From The Bottom Of A Warm Lake, this is transporting music (by which I mean it takes you places in a mental or metaphysical sense, and not that it’s music for truckers. Not that it isn’t, you understand. I don’t know what’s on their playlists these days).
Anyhoo… some brief PR for you:
Formed by lifelong friends Pat Butler and Phil Shore back in 2011, the exceptionally prolific Sleepy Hahas have seen the release of two EPs and an LP in the four short years they’ve been together, with the second full-length due out later this year, not to mention intense touring schedules that led to opening spots for bands like Cloud Nothings, Diarrhea Planet, Beach Fossils, Man Man, and more. Influenced by acts like The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Arctic Monkeys, and more, they lead the listener through the deepest worlds of their imaginations on a quest through the oblivion that is life and death. From The Bottom of a Warm Lake is out this Fall via an Independent release.
I can tell already that you’re wondering where you can buy Deep River. The answer is that you can get it from Bandcamp for all of one dollar.
