Hailing from the region of lake Mälaren in Sweden, SONGS FOR THE SLEEPWALKERS is the \”nom de disque\” behind italian-born “expatriate” and roadrunner Andrea Caccese.
Debut album\”Our rehearsed spontaneous reactions\” is going to be released worldwide in early january 2012 via imprint Paper Wings Records. The full lenght is previewed this december by putting out 2 tracks, Icarus Falling and Tell me How, the latter also released in form of a videoclip (debuted on MTV Italy on December 12), directed by italian film-maker Ivan Forastiere, weaving a surreal texture over two characters moving in a landscape that, despite being the same for both, gets perceived in a different way.
