Recently signed to Upstate Records, Matriarch have just posted a CGI clip for their new single titled “Sleep,” which appears on their impending LP release, ‘Year Of The Rat’ (due Oct. 16). Check out the Cameron Burns-animated/directed video below.
Here’s more info from today’s reveal:
Fighting back the proverbial demons that plagues one’s personal consciousness, “Sleep” depicts the struggle to fight back and suppress the temptation to succumb to the inner voices telling you to “sleep”.
Matriarchs vocalist K Enagonio added:
I’ve always had this recurring nightmare about a shadowy demonic figure looming over me while I’m sleeping. This coupled with the countless stories I’ve heard about sleep paralysis and the crippling effects it has on peoples’ mental health over time inspired the lyrics for our song Sleep. The end of the video and the song is extremely dark and it’s a reflection of what can happen if we let our mental illnesses get the better of us.
