5-reasons

Five Reasons To is basically my way of convincing you to love the same things I do. Because I love a lot of things for a lot of reasons. Hopefully my powers of persuasion will work their magic on you, and you can find new things to love!

Today, I am going to give you five reasons to:

Listen to Sleeping At Last

Sydney and I are absolutely obsessed with Sleeping At Last. I actually have her to thank for introducing me to them, and thus beginning a spiral of love. So, without further ado, let me give you five reasons to listen to the AMAZING Sleeping At Last!

1. The Voice

Guys, seriously. I have rarely heard such a beautiful sound come from a human being. I listen to a lot of music – it’s a huge part of my life, but boy. This voice just beats them all.

2. The Lyrics

The lyrics are so incredibly beautiful, and each and every song has such a poignant meaning. This one is one of my all time favourites.

3. The Instrumentals

I just cannot even with the perfection of the instrumentals. How do you even make music this beautiful?

4. The Covers

I simply adore covers of songs, especially when they’re done well. This particular cover had me balling my eyes out. No shame.

5. The Album Art

Oceans-Cover-Sleeping-At-Last

As if the freaking beautiful music within the albums wasn’t enough, the things covering the albums are so incredibly gorgeous!

So these are five reasons for you to listen to my favourite band/artist (there’s only one guy so I never know what to say) OF ALL TIME. If you do give him a listen, let me know what you think! :D And if you wanna check out his site and maybe purchase some music (you won’t regret it, I promise) click here.

Ta ta for now,

15 Responses to Five Reasons To: Listen to Sleeping At Last

  1. Yaaaay I actually know these guys!! XD Usually I’m hopeless when people mention their favourite bands and I’m like, “Um, One Republic? Imagine Dragons? And…my brain ends.” But I do like Sleeping at Last. I LOVE their cover art! I saved a whole bunch of them for laptop-screen-savers at one point because they’re just darn good pieces of art. XD

  2. I’m listening to the songs they have on YouTube, and I absolutely love them. Thank you for this post – I never would’ve found them otherwise! I love his voice, and the music is so soothing.

    NOPE YOU LINKED SATURN. *rolls away and cries* That song makes me SO SAD but I also love it soooo so much. Ugh. Anyone who doesn’t think that song is insanely beautiful is WRONG.

    Okay now I want to make a post all about Sleeping At Last because I freaking love him. His music just gives me ALL of the feels.

    Also yes his lyrics are stellar. Like…the lyrics for Earth and Woodwork? I NEED to know what it means. “I dig till my shovel tells a secret; swear to the Earth that I will keep it” ?!?! this could be murder?!

    I only have Atlas: Year One but I’m seriously debating getting the EPs separately so I can have all of that gorgeous artwork. Not even sorry about it. :P

      SATURN IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITES BECAUSE ITS THE SONG THAT GOT ME INTO SLEEPING AT LAST AND I JUST CAN’T.

      You should! His music is really feelsy and my heart just kind of contracts whenever I listen to his beautiful noice.

      MURDERRRRRR. IDEK. But the lyrics are so perfect, like North and – EVERY DARN SONG, OKAY?

      Ohmygosh yes. I am so keen on getting the Yearbook, as well! SO MUCH NEW UNLISTENED MUSICCCCC

  4. Thanks for sharing Chiara! I’m always on the lookout for new music to listen to, so I’ll definitely be checking them out :)

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this Chiara! :D I haven’t heard of this artist or his songs before, but your 5 reasons have definitely convinced me! ;)

  6. Yay I’m so glad someone else loves Sleeping at Last! I was introduced to them by my dance teacher during my senior year of high school (which was last year) because we had to do a contemporary dance with their song Light. Such a beautiful song!

    We’ll I know what I’m listening to for the rest of the day! Haha after reading this I immediately logged onto Spotify and now I am listening away, at the moment. And I will continue…until I have heard all of the music :)
