Sleepy House – “concussed.”


The gorgeous “concussed.” is the latest from California-based duo Sleepy House. Reminiscent of Grizzly Bear in its haunting tone, “concussed.” features emotive vocals leading to a devastating, spine-tingling push at 00:56. Wordless vocal quivers, sporadic key-laden chills, and hypnotic guitar combine for a striking aesthetic. The band impressed with the tracks “Spaceships” and “Nana’s Happy Song” last year, and continues to develop their consuming sound. “concussed.” has me very excited for Sleepy House’s future.

“concussed.” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Dream-Pop.
