The Sleeplings – Four Hens Down Song Review – Metalhead Community

Today we are featuring another promising progressive rock band; The Sleeplings, from Denmark. We have reviewed their super moody song; Four Hens Down, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

The Sleeplings is another promising progressive rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about two weeks ago with this song; Four Hens Down, off from their latest single release with the same title, which was released in 2019. Time to time I talk about characteristics in music, about bands and how they make a difference with their music. In this example, The Sleeplings is making the difference with their dark and moody atmosphere in this very song. Go ahead and listen to the music while reading this article. You’ll understand what I am talking about.

The song is mostly structured on some chord progressions and the vocal lines. Don’t expect to hear so many surprises through the story in the composition. They are much more into every single idea itself, more than the composition, which reminded me of Opeth, time to time. The general sound is more like British rock with Scandinavian flavor, and vocalist’s singing style and voice has reminded me of Coldplay a lot. Yet, the combination of these elements is surprisingly powerful. As I musician I can understand the value of what they have and what they are trying to do with it. This is quite admirable. Creating something unique and being known with that kinda sound is something remarkable, the most honorable and respected achievement as an artist, in my opinion. The Sleeplings in this way has done a big step forward with their ideas. The music is strong, the atmosphere is tense, the listener can easily feel the vibe. On the other hand, I found their music video very successful as well. Upcoming artists are still not quite aware of the importance of visuals. In our era, every single thing you can create to support or highlight the impact of your art is very crucial. This is one of the very successful examples. The music and the video together are making everything much more powerful. Great job, truly

Technically, Four Hens Down has great standards as well. It is hard for me to say if it is a top class work or not, but the result is totally satisfactory. Everything has a great balance between them. In my opinion, this kind of specific work needs specific post-production as well. And on this example, you can easily feel how moody and depressive everything sounds. In other words, the music has an exceptional harmony along with its characteristic, which is rare.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by the unique style of The Sleeplings. They have done everything very professionally and earned our admiration for it. I believe that they are on the right track. It is just a matter of time for them to become who they deserve to be if only they can maintain their standards in what they do.
