Sleeping In Traffic‘s new split EP explores the dual nature of the band’s music. One EP ‘That Which Destroys Us’ is dark and aggressive. While the other EP ‘That Which Saves Us’ is upbeat and catchy.
The band explains the duality in their vision:
“The first ‘That Which Saves Us’ is the “upbeat EP”. It strongly represents a lot of the pop-punk influences that Ryan and Greg bring to the band, and features songs with inspiring themes and uplifting major keys.
The other ‘That Which Destroys Us’ displays more of the band’s extreme metal influences, without abandoning some of the weirdness the band is known for. The EPs continue to explore odd time signatures and polyrhythms in the context of heavily distorted guitars, snarling synths, and guttural vocals.”
