      Sleep Talk 'Everything in Color' Album Review by Ariana Leo

      Sleep Talk

      Everything in Color

      UNFD Records

      Released: May 3rd, 2019

      Album Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist

      Boston Rock Radio

      Everything in Color seems to be a fitting title for the debut full-length album by Australian alternative/hardcore band Sleep Talk: The music is inherently colorful, with plenty of experimentation and tons of mid-song changes in key, rhythm, tempo and overall mood to keep listeners on their toes. No two songs sound the same, and yet, these up-and-comers—Jacob Clement (vocals), Lewis Tito (guitar/vocals), Josh Healey (bass/vocals), Fraser Ray (guitar), and Michael Belletti (drums)—truly come into their own on this full-length release, and do a stellar job of marking their signature sound.

      Vocalist Jacob Clement’s guttural growls are backed by beautiful, melodic tones, reminiscent of post-hardcore bands before them such as Northlane and Being As An Ocean. Lead guitarist, Fraser Ray, shines at both softer chord sections and high-energy riffs. One of the band’s trademarks seems to be layering aggressive screams over traditional alternative instrumentals (check out “The Sun” and “If I Die”), giving their music a truly unique feel. The energy picks up at the midpoint of the former, and the song becomes more and more charged with emotion right up until its abrupt end. Listeners will feel the desperation in the lyric, “What if the sun swallowed me whole?” The title track, “Everything in Color,” uses the same sort of juxtaposition, with dark lyrics in a bright-sounding bridge, and somehow, it just works. The amazingly low vocals are breathtaking and make it a show-stopping mid-album track. 

      The last three songs, “Sleep Talk,” “The New Year,” and “Kill,” are some of the strongest; they fold seamlessly into one another, and I couldn’t help wondering if Everything in Color was intended as a concept album, with deep, personal themes of self-reflection tying it all together.

      If there’s one hardcore band to watch in 2019, it’s Sleep Talk. Everything in Color shows mature musicianship and proves that this talented quintet is ready to step up to the next level. The album is available now on all streaming platforms.
