Following the release of the wonderfully titled single ‘1,000 Opera Singers Working in Starbucks’, which was included in the official soundtrack of F I F A 1 9 , London trio Wovoka Gentle have now shared new track ‘Peculiar Form of Sleep’, out now on Nude.
Wovoka Gentle explain “It’s something to do with that moment between being awake and asleep, where thoughts bleed into dreams and everything seems to make both no sense and perfect sense”, the band says. “You’re sliding between these contrasting, dense passages that still feed off one another and congregate around some kind of narrative, which maybe is the whole narrative.
The title is from an E.E. Cummings poem: ‘to exist being a peculiar form of sleep’.
