Cools Sounds - Sleepers EP

Sleepers is quite sneaky. It appears to be a modest six-track EP of easy listening, only asking for your ears and a bit of time. But by the time its final note it has captured your heart and soul and worked its way to the top of your current playlist. This gem war crafted by the soft rock masters of Melbourne's Cool Sounds. Fans of their past work will not be surprised by the silky melodies, appealing lyrics and sharp hooks, However, the combination of elements here strikes us as prime magic. The guitars are ace and the additional vocal contributions add an extra dash of lushness.  Although our current favorites are the opening and closing tracks, which we have embedded below, every song in the set is a clear winner. And by our calculus, that makes all of us with a copy of Sleepers a winner.

Cool Sounds are Dainis Lacey, Nick Kearton, Ambrin Hasnain, Lauren Huynth, Steve Foulkes, and Jack Nichols. Additional contributions were provided by Rose Kean, Anila Hasnain, Dylan Young,, Jo Syme, and Matt Murphy. Sleepers is out now via Hotel Motel Records.
