Autosleeper – “Disappearing”

Barcelona-based rockers Autosleeper impress throughout their new EP Only Forward. Highlight “Disappearing” exemplifies the band’s bursting, textured rock sound — balancing a gauzy wall-of-sound with a briskly melodic pull. The track’s guitar progression and overall tone conjures ’90s nostalgia very fondly — reminding of Matthew Good Band at points. The muscle-y guitars around 01:10 add vigor, contrasting nicely with the more graceful guitar layers in the verses. “Disappearing” is a powerfully effective track that shows the band’s tonal range, between a shoegaze-friendly chorus and more alt-rock-forward verses. Another EP highlight is “Your Name is a Symbol.” A prominent bass line and click-clacking percussion kick off a satisfying build-up. MBV-esque guitar tones approach the three-minute mark — another fine showing of the band’s talents and grasp of rock-induced atmosphere.

Stream “Your Name is a Symbol” and the rest of Only Forward in full below:
