Hanging Valleys – the duo consisting of Thom Byles and Michael Phillips – is a call to the encoded part of ourselves that yearns to get outside and use our bodies until they are tired. After embarking on a cross-country trip the two returned to their indoor lives having spent the days pushing themselves past exertion. The result is a quiet returning to oneself. “Sleeping Sound” is composed around delicate acoustic arpeggios, soft voice and gentle ambient drones that peer in and out of the composition’s tonal changes. A beautiful effort of quiet and soft reflection after feeling completely exhausted.
