Couchsleepers evoke something beautiful in new record "Only When It's Dark"

Toward the end of February Burlington, Vermont group Couchsleepers released a silky indie-rock record—titled Only When It's Dark—that ticks all the boxes for a laid-back evening or end-of-road-trip soundtrack. From sensationally atmospheric tracks like the title one, which hypnotizes with its heart-beat-deep basslines and hazy delays to the warm vocals that lure and groove in "All I Want," the record jumps from one syrupy track to the next. Songs like "On Your Mind" bask in their melancholy as they flaunt sweet indie-rock guitar riffs, slightly fuzzed and exquisite. The record evokes a feeling of completion, it begs you to recall the end of something, perhaps beautiful, maybe tragic. Stream "On Your Mind" below and trust us that it will be worth your time. - Rene Cobar
