Taking the conception of a piece of music to a whole new level, Sleep Token have seemingly created the most mysterious cult of a band I’ve yet to see. They claim to be the Vessel of some sort of Sleep deity, and while it seems to be some sort of giant joke or meme, I can’t help but be drawn in by the mystery alone. They’ve released a brand new EP titled ‘One,’ containing three songs with another trio of piano arrangements to those songs. It’s definitely one of the most surprising releases of 2016; their sweeping ambiance and lull is paired with crushing hooks and some absolutely brutal outros. Simple, and yet satisfying to the utmost degree. Take a listen, you might be surprised yourself.
