Art Of Sleeping release latest single ‘The Cage’ from their 2015 debut LP ‘Shake Shiver’. The Brisbane lads are set to hit the road again this week and will be joining Boy & Bear as lead support on their national ‘Limit Of Love’ album tour. ‘The Limit Of Love’ tour kicks off this Friday the 22nd of Jan at The Odeon in Hobart and will see them travel across six states to perform for some of their biggest audiences to date including the Riverstage.
On ‘The Cage’, the brooding final track and closer of ‘Shake Shiver’, Caleb’s vocals burn with intensity – tweaking his tones to simple yet devastating effect, and thundering percussion from brothers Jean-Paul and Francois with deft drums and blistering bass to create a tumultuous finale.
“’The Cage’ came together when we were staying at a property near Mt Warning to work on our album ‘Shake Shiver’. It was one of those songs that just materialised during a jam and felt really natural as it came together. The arrangement and instrumentation didn’t change much from the first time we played it through to the final recording. The song is collectively one of our favourite songs to play and becomes even more dynamic and emotive in a live setting.”
– Caleb Hodges
2015 saw Art Of Sleeping put their own spin on Drake’s Billboard #1 hit ‘Hotline Bling’ for triple j’s esteemed ‘Like A Version’ segment, showing of their signature guitar riffs and Caleb’s crooning vocals that lends itself perfectly to Drizzy’s sexy slow jam. The band travelled extensively across the country with two national headline tours in support of their debut LP and performed at Splendour In The Grass. They also supported fellow Aussies The Jungle Giants on their fourteen-date national tour as well as their career highlight of performing alongside the likes of Mumford & Sons, Jake Bugg, Future Islands, The Vaccines and more for the Gentlemen Of The Road Event held at The Domain in Sydney.
