Michigan quintet Sleep Waker have dropped a new single, ‘110 Minutes’, taken from their forthcoming sophomore album, ‘Alias’.
Speaking about the track, the band had this to say.
“‘110 Minutes’ is one of the most energetic songs on the record, but it still holds the same melancholic theme of change brought from loss. This is a concept we decided to carry over from the new song ‘Distance.’ We felt that making one of the hypest songs on the record connect back into the story our past song, ‘Relief’ [from 2018’s ‘Don’t Look At The Moon’], all the while making this song relate sonically to ‘Don’t Look At The Moon’ with heavy, crushing, fast-paced riffs and constant background effects to build atmosphere. We really wanted to highlight that while ‘Alias’ may have more melodic experimentation with songs like ‘Distance’ and Skin,’ a song like ‘110 Minutes’ is a perfect showcase of our signature heavy sound that we’re still developing while perfecting the newer elements.”

The band’s second album, ‘Alias’, is out on July 23rd 2021 via UNFD.
