Born in 2007, Walking Sleep came to life with a purpose: cross-pollinating boy/girl vocal harmonies with classic rhythms, intricate orchestration, and curiously dark lyrics. Originally formed under the name the Flying Tourbillon Orchestra, the six-piece band came together as an extension of lead singer Hunter Curra's songwriting. Drawing influence across genres and decades, the music echoes the melancholy psychedelic pop of the Zombies, the uptempo stomp of classic Motown, and the moody melodicism of Fleetwood Mac, all twisted and reshaped through the prism of indie pop.
They will be coming into our loft tonight at 7 pm to promote their new release "Tarp Sessions" on yellow vinyl. This record was self recorded which resulted in songs that show the band experimenting inside and outside of its familiar styles. You will hear covers of various artists on this record including "Lovesong" by The Cure (featured below). Make sure you come in and see the band's take on some of their favorite songs, as well as the band's originals. The record is available now at the store. We would love to see you come by tonight!
