Sleepcircle is a promising melodic/hard rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about 3 months ago with their captivating song; Leave Your Eyes, off from their latest EP; Strange Life, which was released in 2020. The band is officially making releases since 2017. They have started their careers with a single called; “Wasted Brain” in 2017, continued with an EP; “Dead Wait” in 2017, then released 4 more singles; “Pumpkin Head”, “Apparition”, “Bring it On”, and “Consumed”, in the same year with their full-length album; “From the Heaven, Through the Window” in 2019, and later released another EP called; “Strange Life” not long ago in 2020. Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Leave Your Eyes is a very successful piece of work, making the actual difference with its irresistible atmosphere, magical vibes, beautiful harmony, and phenomenal instrumentation. The structure of the song is easy going, never pushes anything too much, or highlighting only one instrument, instead, it is focusing more on the overall vibe of the song which immediately pulls the listener into its world and leaves its mark in your memory. It is quite obvious that they are quite experienced at what they do when you look at their discography. As you might also remember from some of my previous articles, I respect bands who are showing determination and consistency. I know how difficult and challenging it can be from my personal experience. Keeping everything alive for 3 long years, making 8 releases, showing potential with your brand image, work ethic and understanding of music surely makes you a special band.
Leave Your Eyes might sound simple to you at first, but believe me, these Canadian gentlemen are on the right way of becoming “authentic” with their blend and instrumentation. This kind of musical blend requires experience, which has immediately reminded me of Until it Sleeps by Metallica. As you will also remember, Metallica plays different things with their instruments on that song, yet we only hear and remember the ultimate, the general vibe of the song itself, which is admirable. Honestly, not everybody can write music like this when it comes to showing greatness in a specific music style such as this one.
