Norwegian melodic hardcore band HALCYON DAYS reveal their brand new single “Sleepwalking” today! Tune in & listen to the single here.
Heavy, groovy, and always melodic is how we know the sound of Halcyon Days. The band’s newest effort “Sleepwalking” is yet another driving melodic hardcore anthem that follows their captivating alt-rock approach.
Well played dynamics make “Sleepwalking” a very balanced single that features big soundscapes, remarkable melody lines and an emotional chorus accompanied by Madsen’s passionate shouts. In between the alternative rock vibes á la 30STM, there’s still enough place for heavy hardcore elements, which perfectly combine with their melodic and atmospheric Architects-y side and create a true post-hardcore anthem. In the end, “Sleepwalking” follows the stream-lined path of Halcyon Days, who just created another banger that again increases anticipation for their upcoming record “Keep Me From Sinking”.
As the band states: ”’Sleepwalking’ is about regaining your self-confidence and happiness, taking back control over your own life, letting go of the past, always looking forward.”
With “Sleepwalking” the band released their fourth and final single off their upcoming album “Keep Myself From Sinking”, which will be released on November 5th via Indie Recordings!
