Sleeprydr is the latest single by the enigmatic Tallinn, Estonia group Holy Motors. Dream pop soaked in dark reverb and slow ethereal voices. Perfect music for after-hours driving in the countryside.|
From the press release:
We are excited to announce Holy Motors’ second 7” single, Sleepryder b/w Descending -- yet another love story inspired by Chris Isaak songs and Spanish blues. The follow-up to the Heavenly Creatures 7”, this single features the sultry two-chord “Sleeprydr” backed with “Descending,” a sunset anthem for lonely navigators. Where Heavenly Creatures charted a celestial course, the Sleepryder 7” finds Holy Motors cruising the otherworldly landscapes of their Tallinn, Estonia home.
RIYL: Mazzy Star, Chelsea Wolfe, Cigarettes After Sex, Slowdive and Beach House.
Recommended Tracks: 1, 2
1. (5:44) *** Sleepryder – Atmospheric guitars. Slow female vocals. Slow tempo. Striking construction. Mazzy Star would be proud.
2. (4:08) *** Descending – Gorgeous medium tempo psych rock popper evoking Mazzy Star wrapped in tasteful reverb.
