Vancouver Sleep Clinic
Vancouver Sleep Clinic
Vancouver Sleep Clinic as a name in itself conjures up imagery of long cold winters, of isolation and remoteness and the sometimes self-imposed reclusiveness in all of us as the days get shorter and we move into the bitter months ahead. The adopted moniker of 17 year-old Tim Bettinson perfectly hones in on this visuality, and with new track "Collapse," taken from his forthcoming debut EP, the influences of those dark corners inside ourselves interweave throughout his sound.

As we draw closer into the winter here in the Western hemisphere, VSC feels like it was designed to be delivered just in time for the onslaught of the colder weather. Taking into consideration that Tim lives in Australia, he set about writing songs for VSC during his winter but what was in fact our summer -- timing can be everything.

After months of assembling lyrics and instrumentation from various maths books, notes, whiteboards and bedroom walls, humbly working with scattered cheap microphones, an old laptop and an outdated keyboard, Vancouver Sleep Clinic's debut EP was born, a combination of soaring falsetto vocals built upon progressive synthetic instrumentation to create an ambient base for a vessel of emotional connections to be made.

Bearing messages of sorrow, humility and hope above all else -- songs are written from the heart alone. Together, let's create something beautiful.
Sleeping Lion
Sleeping Lion
The Boston-based lurid indie pop duo, Sleeping Lion, was formed by roommates Nate Flaks and Noah Longworth McGuire in the Spring of 2015. The first Sleeping Lion songs were written and produced remotely the following summer (via Skype) while Nate was living in Dobbs Ferry, NY and Noah was living in Rome, Italy. In the Fall, the two came together to record in Quincy, MA.
Their first single- “You Made Me”- was released in September (2015) and quickly generated hype around Boston. Their subsequent singles- “Rug” (premiered exclusively on Indie Shuffle) and “Generous” (premiered exclusively on Line of Best Fit)- were featured on various music blogs and Spotify playlists (“Chill Vibes”/ “Slow Club”/ “Fresh Finds: Hiptronix”).
Their debut EP- “Patient Creature”- was released in July (2016) and featured their unique combination of mellow alternative electronic vibes with elements of future-bass.
Sleeping Lion is currently playing shows in Boston/NYC and they are expecting to release new music in the near future.
