Track Of The Day: Bamboo Smoke – ‘Sleepless’

A smooth, effortlessly produced electronic lullaby, Bamboo Smoke have shared their latest single ‘Sleepless’. Formed of lyricist & vocalist Lou and instrumentalist & producer Tom, the duo create hazy soundscapes with smoky undertones and soulful vocals.

A chance meeting on a rooftop brought Bamboo Smoke together at a time when Lou had armfuls of notebooks filled with words and melodies and Tom had a library of instrumentals desperate for the right voice. The duo have since spent months writing together in South London, riding trains, scrawling lyrics and bouncing phone recordings back and forth.

The band’s debut EP is a collection of songs written over the course of the last year, during sessions snatched from the temporal demands of life in London in your 20s jobs, blending the playful with the shadows, capturing fragments of dreams.
