Interview: Sleepmakeswaves On Creating “Euphoric” Music
Post-rockers sleepmakeswaves returned with their second studio album Love of Cartography in July this year and whilst in the midst of a national tour, they managed to stop by Music Feeds Studio for a special unplugged session of Music Feeds LIVE.
Following their stripped-back performance, the band told us they are rapt with how fans are responding to their new direction in sound. “We’ve played to crowds in places we never though we’d play to a crowd like that in a place like that, and the positivity we’ve been getting from the crowd has been incredible in just about every town,” they explain.
“With this record, Love of Cartography, we wanted to try and bring some joy into the music and really create a euphoric thing. So the fact people are turning up and they’re feeling that too and we’re feeling that from them, that’s amazing.”
“We used to have people head-banging and rocking out at all our shows and now we have people dancing and jumping around so that’s a lot of fun for us.”
