Sleep Therapy - "This is Power" (audio) (premiere)
Atlanta's own Sleep Therapy channels the more direct, rock-oriented side of shoegaze on "This is Power".
After a five-year hiatus Atlanta band Sleep Therapy returned this past January with Dirt City Swans, the first of four new EPs planned for release. Next up is Creatures, which comes out today, and we’re happy to premiere “This is Power”, one of its four new tracks.
While Philadelphia band Nothing is devoted to replicating the hazy sounds of My Bloody Valentine, Sleep Therapy is about the more direct, rock ‘n’ roll oriented side of early-‘90s shoegaze, skewing more toward the clearer, roaring sounds of Ride and Swervedriver. You hear that on “This is Power”, its decipherable vocals juxtaposed with thunderous, effects-laden power chords and squalls of noise.
The Creatures EP can be ordered via Bandcamp.
