Editorial Reviews

The sound of Sleep for Sleepers is best described as a hybrid of the grace and poise of Copeland with the energy and charisma of Number One Gun. This three piece from Whittier, California is a refreshing new face in the industry, and with their 2009 debut release, The Clearing Sleep For Sleepers is poised to make a big impression. They have shared the stage with bands such as Quietdrive, The White Tie Affair, Last Tuesday, Future of Forestry, The Fold, We Shot The Moon, and The Summer Set. The band has been described as poetic and challenging a fitting description of their ability to both grab listeners and keep them listening. Sleep For Sleepers is building a strong foundation of ever growing fans all across the country with The Clearing backed by an expanding tour history and highly engaging live show. Singer Jamie Price delivers live vocals as seamless as the recording, and with all the momentum Sleep For Sleepers has gained they are ready and willing to take advantage of their success in the coming year.

Format: MP3 Music
With a cursory listen, "The Clearing" sounds to be a very dynamic and airy summer album. It is pleasant, fast and powerful. However, the listener may be inclined to write it off as a mix of Copeland ballads and Mae riffs, but contrary to popular belief, Sleep for Sleepers have delivered an album much richer and deeper than a typical emo ballad.

Seasoned with keyboard synths and rich falsetto, Sleep for Sleepers goes beyond impeccable musicianship to deliver lyrics that speak directly to the heart. They open bravely with the aptly titled, "Bravery", with an admonition to girls,

"Hey sisters, have you been shown? That you're much more than bodies used to dance on their floors. They call out for you all night and all day, the gentlemen beg and they beg and they beg and they beg"

Sleep for Sleepers truly poured their hearts into this album and it shows. The songs aren't bogged down by constant hooks that jerk you to and fro, but rather allow you to pleasantly experience a mix of rock hits and casual ballads. The album would help you fall asleep, if only the lyrics weren't challenging you each and every step. The title track "The Clearing", offers a great closing chapter to the album, truly a debut to be proud of,

"While I've tested seasons in search for Your glory, I have two bloody hands with scars that can prove I tried to fight fears, instead I fought you. When will I learn of all that I'm worth? More than I'm told, more than I've heard, more than I've heard. This is the process of finding who I am."

Take a night on the beach with Sleep for Sleepers playing on your stereo, enjoy the beauty and the dynamics. Most of all allow the deep heartfelt lyrics resonate with you, as they have with me. Sleep for Sleepers has set the bar pretty high for their first release, we can only hope for greater work yet to come.
