Cape Town’s progressive rock kings drop a new video and single today. It’s the first new release by a band that has spent several years in self-imposed exile, honing a brand new sound.
The new song, Mine, is a stark, introspective and dizzyingly powerful track that heralds the Sleepers’ return to the limelight, in gloriously dark style.
The video for Mine – photographed, edited, produced and directed by Craig Ferguson of the Public Pool – is a jaw-dropping testament to local filmmaking talent.
Filmed using one of the only RED Dragon cameras in Africa, along with a flying camera drone (now banned in SA), the video is as technically impressive as it is beautifully connected to the song. This may be the last local video filmed using drones that South Africans are likely to see in a long time.
So what’s the message? The Sleepers are officially back. Wielding a giant new sound, new members and a new look, this band is set to add countless hordes to its devoted fan base.
