Sleepy Vikings: Horse Song
Back from another year at SXSW, The five sleazy Tampanians (a real word according to UrbanDictionary.com) of Sleepy Vikings have braved an infernal Florida sun to write the weird songs about stalkers, dead kings, summer, presidents and teenage loitering that make up the debut album, ‘They Will Find You Here’ out now via the New Granada record label.
Sleepy Vikings had previously and unsuccessfully described it’s sound as “southern shoegaze”, but this tag is really just window dressing for hick towns and beer plus Pavement and Sonic Youth. This is a band that accepted an invitation to play its first show before it even had a set of music to play, so fitting into a genre is not a top priority. [via New Granada]
