Texas’ newest instrumental three-piece, Halfsleep, are back in 2014 with the fresh and wonderful ‘Opaque’.

Having already released two singles and a full length album as part of a bedroom-esque music project, Nathan Gass’ math rock inspired band Halfsleep are set to release their first record as a full band in the new year. Coming from the same school of thought as pioneering bands such as Rooftops, TTNG and Tokyo’s Mouse On The Keys, Halfsleep’s sound has really come into its own with the introduction of now full-time members Brian Radcliffe & Chelby Hanks.

From its roots in progressive math-pop, complete with clean-cut technical guitar riffs and rolling drum fills, the trio’s brand new single ‘Opaque’ introduces moments of suspense and diversity with striking lines of piano and vibraphone.

‘Opaque’ is a great track; a short but sharp glimpse into something really special. And we can’t wait to hear more.

Discussing the new single, the three-piece added:

“Opaque is an amalgamation of genres and ideas we’ve wanted to put together for a very long time. Going from a solo project to now having a full lineup, it feels like hindrances that were present before are now gone. You could say this was always the ideal sound that I (Nathan) hoped for, but could never manage to create due to the limitations of myself.”

Halfsleep’s up-coming album is scheduled for a 2015 release.
