Sleepy Tom Releases “This Thing Called Life”
Vancouver-based talent Sleepy Tom releases the title track of his forthcoming EP, This Thing Called Life today. Fans can expect to receive the full project later this year via MNRK. Both the single and the EP mark the continuation of the producer’s evolution as he expands into the smoky dens of disco music. The producer finds inspiration in the music he also listens to, citing artists like The Avalanches, Jungle, The Weeknd and Breakbot to name a few. In turn, ‘Time and Time Again(feat. Hotel Mira)’ draws parallels to the works of Jungle, Purple Disco Machine and The Weeknd.
“With ‘This Thing Called Life’, I wanted to make a collection of songs that were going to lift me out of my funk. I was looking for music that could satisfy my club cravings, while also leaving room for melody––disco! Working with Parker allowed me to maintain a larger scope without losing perspective in the minutiae of producing a song. I sincerely hope that this EP captures the essence of our present life––putting one foot in front of the other, managing the ups and downs, and finding the joy in what you do.”
