"The treatment. Act 1. The York brothers. Richmond, Virginia. Completely saturated in rock and roll dreams, young Austin and Michael attend countless shows up and down the east coast with an older sister. Driven to start bands of their own, success comes early but remains incomplete. Major labels knock on the teenagers door for big city showcases even as the music industry slides into chaos. When the light of getting signed grows dim, the group falls apart and the brothers tumble into a creative funk. Enter a wise old friend with a massive record collection, serving as guru, nurturing them into wider musical appreciation, and providing a clear head space to start over. Cut to the farm, a gem of a rural studio, where they meet audio engineer and drummer Alex De Jong, kindred spirit and equally intuitive musical force. Something clicks as they work together to demo new material, nightlights go off above their heads, and Sleepwalkers is born screaming.

Sleepwalkers delivers a parallel aural experience, shifting narratives populated by heroes and villains, lost love and love found, neon landscapes and windswept skyscrapers. The follow-up to Sleepwalkers 60s fanstasia, cult-favorite debut, Greenwood Shade (2014), "Wake Up" and "Reasons To Give Up In You" feel equally effortless, backed by the bands facility with the structures and language of pop music. These specific references, from Whitney Houston to Thin Lizzy, come so furiously fast and from so many different angles production, singing, writing, arrangement, engineeringthat the songs are never weighed down or overshadowed by their inspirations. An aesthetic based primarily on exhilaration.

Sometimes when you let go of a dream, it comes back to you, and you realize that you werent ready for it before. It is significant that Spacebomb, a label built on production and musicianship is releasing a record they have no direct hand in making. No need to improve on this maximalist pop masterpiece. In the Yorks and De Jong, the label recognized peers, with a unique process of their own, an equal love and knowledge of recording history, appreciation for all those high-watermarks across genre, an astonishing live band possessing a sound both stadium-filling and soul-nourishing, proven over tours supporting J. Roddy Walston & The Business, The Lumineers, and The Shins. Fantastic natural songwriting, personal experience amplified to a broad lyricism, uncompromising sincerity and uncompromising commitment to having a fine evening, all of it steeped in the vernacular culture of Richmond. Cue the theme song, play the montage. Sleepwalkers is the story of some hard-working boys, whose talent and love of music sustained them, whose belief in each other carried them through."
