TOTD: The Sleeplings “Long-forgotten”

Bringing their new EP to a close, Long-forgotten is a sweeping indie rock epic that comes in just shy of 6 minutes, and leaves you wanting 6 more. The buildup in this song reminds me of an old Wil E. Coyote and Road Runner cartoon; running in hot pursuit of this ever increasing crescendo, you feel like you’ve reached the pinnacle when suddenly you realize at the last second that you are falling off of a cliff, landing in the subdued outro below.

The song weaves a story of post breakup sadness, and the ghost that can haunt you well after the physical form has left your planet. Working through a wide range of emotions throughout the album, Long-forgotten finally lands on completely leaving this ghost behind, including the memories.

“Tomorrow all your stories are yours only 
Leave just, for we have left in silence so long ago 
Lost in the slipstream of once was”

TheSleeplings---Hans-Peter-Erbs-Hansen

The Sleeplings are an indie post-rock group of Danes that need to be on everyone’s radar. If you’ve read this blog for any length of time at all, you know I’m an absolute sucker for a good storyteller penning a song. These guys are right up there with some of my favorites right now.
