about

Second Sleep picks up right where they left with their debut effort “The Red EP” with a fully realized new 4-song EP, “Crows.” The Portland duo builds on their trademark sonic density with Bruce Reed’s enormous, cascading wall of washing guitars blanketed atop sludgy bass loops and T.J. Burke’s thunderous drums landing like fists on a shaky table on the verge of collapse. While the RED EP weaved elements of stoner metal swagger, Crows elevates Second Sleep’s noise rock art form to a higher plane with razor sharp, melodic precision.

“Most of the material from the RED EP was written before Second Sleep existed, they were ideas T.J. and I had as our last band was disintegrating and they became the seeds for Second Sleep. The songs came before the band and they existed a long time before we finally released them. I love those songs, but we’ve had them a long time. Crows is a much more realized expression of who we are now, and where we are going.”

The result is instrumental noise-rock packaged up in borderline shoe gaze and industrial sounds. Crows sounds like the instrumental love child of Young Widows and Bauhaus—treading a fine line between abrasive post-punk bombast and ethereal new wave gloom rock expression.

“Crows” will be released on limited edition cassette on October 8th, 2019, on Portland boutique label, Holiday Breath Records.
