SLEEPSTREAM - A waltz with the seventh crane [2011]

Sleepstream’s debut album “A Waltz with the Seventh Crane”. Powering from their post-rock, experimental, ambient and progressive influences, the band comes to testify there is more happening in Greece than a crisis.
When nostalgia meets with everyday life, when you feel that you don't belong to the reality around you, and crave for the little things to give you a glimpse of joy, then it is created the time and space capsule that gives you ways out for the soul.
This is when the "A waltz with the Seventh Crane" album comes along. The deeply melancholic and warm rythmic parts, give space to the guitars to move all around, like melodic night flies lured by the dim light of the haunted violin's strings.
Their only purpose is to find their way to the Light, where they fire up, bursting to a huge explosion of melodies, as they waltz along with the seventh crane, the capsule traveling them with the speed of light, where those who meet the end of this journey find their rest, and prepare for their new adventures.
It is "Sleepstream", who by their debut album, find a space between post-rock, classical and progressive influences, to unfold with honesty and simplicity their aspect of "the mood and soul in music", taking the listener aboard in the restless band's search for ascension.
