‘Sleep’ is the new single from Manchester folktronica act Granfalloon. The song begins as a primal howl before tranforming into a plea for balance with its chorus “Time and money/you can’t have both”. It was written at a time of upheaval for singer Richard Lomax with the subject matter taking in living between addresses, lost friendships, and including a reference to real suicide note sent to the DSS (the Department of Social Security for those outside of the UK). While the lyrics show an understanding of a dark mind, it understands most importantly, that a dark mind is not always in a dark place. The track is marked by its dynamic drums crashing between order and chaos – switching instantly between the beats of a drum machine and a sample played by drummer Oli Hughes.
