Sleeping Babys are a five piece indie rock group hailing from Sidney, Australia. Their track “Resistor” has really caught our attention here at NeuFutur. The track features a powerful social message that reminds listeners that by hurting others “you only hurt yourself”. The lyrics ask the listeners to “resist” the idea that you can gain something by saying hateful things to others. I think this is personally one of the most touching subjects I’ve heard in popular music recently.
The song starts with a slow but powerful guitar lead in building up to Stacie beginning the song. After a few seconds the rest of the band join in to begin a impressive combination of harmony and nuanced arrangements. Her voice is deep and compelling voice, reminding you of a young Stevie Nicks or Tori Amos. She has great range going from quietly harmonizing to soaring on the track, providing a considerable amount of dimension and animation to her lyrics. You can hear in her voice the pain and dedication she has to the music.
Sleeping Babys have sort of an indie rock meets pop, with a little splash of possibly country sound. The instrumentation is spot on with the strings providing the mood for the song while hard hitting drums bring forth a dramatic force to really polish the song. The track is well composed with no lulls or dull spots. I could see fans of artists such as Sheryl Crow or Lana Del Rey enjoying the powerful weighty vocals and lyrics. While fans of groups like Coldplay and U2 would be brought to the group with the arrangement of instruments.
I hope that we will hear more from Sleeping Babys soon, their strong message resounds saying “What if everything you said and everything you did mattered”?
