Sleepless – Celadon

Ok, the opening sequences might be lifted directly from Ride’s ‘Vapour Trail’ but boy does ‘Celadon’ go on to make a name for itself in the shoegaze stakes. It is the work of London based band Sleepless and is taken from their floppy fringed spectacular that was their 2004 eponymous EP. Sleepless take their cues from the Chapterhouse wing of the shoegaze juggernaut so you can expect claustrophobic chord ensembles and swirling vocals transmitting near indecipherable messages. ‘Celadon’ is a spectacular cathedral of sound that pays homage to the early nineties greats while still remaining a standout track in its own right. All the players must be complimented because this is an extraordinarily well-executed piece of dream pop. According to the shoegaze forum it seems that Sleepless are no more. Such a pity. KD
