Slumber View – “Tuesday Then”

slumber-view

“Tuesday Then” drips with longing wintry vibes, as the icicle-cold keys and droning hypnotic approach treads enjoyably through a crystallized melody that sounds like it would fit in the Twin Peaks universe. It has that sort of haunting, ethereal quality with a hint of mysticism, thanks in large part to the songwriting and idiosyncratically enjoyable vocals. We’re very excited to premiere it as a result. Apparently, despite the very clear result, the track “was recorded entirely on an iPhone in my room in Brooklyn after working third-shift,” per Slumber View. “The song was fueled by third-shift induced insomnia and inspired by/dedicated to my grandmother who passed away as I was working on the album Something Anyway. Many of the songs are about the topic of her passing away, from first-person accounts of watching her go, to personal attempts of dealing with it (such as meditation).”

The emotion here is apparent, as are the impressive songwriting and production chops, even with just the bare necessities. Stream Slumber View’s new release, Something Anyway, in full below for a recommended emotional listen:
