Videos by American Songwriter

Philadelphia rockers Left & Right have released the first single from their upcoming new album The Yips, due out September 16 via WarHen Records. The track combines a sleepy melody and surreal lyrics about visibility and performance with heavy percussion and plenty of guitar hooks.

“[Sleep Show] is about a reoccurring dream I have where I wake up to find remnants of an audience scattered around as if I had been the attraction,” says singer and guitarist Daniel Merchant. “I think it concerns my feelings about the relationship between the audience and the artist and which is ultimately driving the other.”
