"sleepmakeswaves is a melodic instrumental rock quartet from Sydney, Australia, whose debut album "…and so we destroyed everything" made such an impact in their homeland that it was unprecedentedly nominated for an ARIA award -- Australia's equivalent of the Grammy Awards. Such a coup for a style of music so often marginalized highlights something truly important about this band: its music is so immersive, powerful and evocative that it, above all else, speaks to people on an individual level, beyond categorization.

The strength of great instrumental music is its ability to communicate without the traditional trappings of someone singing about specific emotions. The music itself touches each listener differently. And, as in the case of sleepmakeswaves, there is a symphonic transcendence to the band's sound that encompasses a wide variety of colours - ranging from ambient soundscapes, to soaring melodic hooks and moments of dark, brooding intensity. There are electronic layers interwoven with slow-burning builds, churning metallic riffs segueing into beautifully lush melodies, wistful strings blossoming out of neo-folk marches. "…and so we destroyed everything" encompasses so much more than is typical of the vast array of sounds to have become known as post-rock, ranging from Sigur Ros to Explosions In the Sky to Russian Circles to Caspian and beyond."
