[FreshFindings] Couchsleepers com Half the Night

Bom dia! Hoje apresento-vos Couchsleepers com o tema “half the night”. É uma música calminha, introspectiva e com reflexões tão humanas: 

“Half the Night” is an exploration of a late-night anxiety. The feeling of lying next to your lover and wondering what they’re thinking. It’s about the demons that we invent for ourselves. The song is actually part of a couplet, it’s paired with our next single “Sleepless” — both share the lyrics “I sleep much worse without you.” We recorded the song in my bedroom, as we do all our music, although we re-recorded drums in a local studio at some point (no access to a kit).

Max Shashoua takes that guitar solo at the end there, one of my favorite moments on our upcoming record (Only When It’s Dark, Match 2020). Couchsleepers grew out of an old band of ours, The Giant Peach. We all met at Middlebury College. The emphasis is on songwriting and storytelling and texture and atmosphere.

E é neste ambiente de compasso contemplativo que somos visitados por uma percussão suave, uma linha de guitarra emotiva e por uma voz de contador de histórias que decidiu partilhar connosco um pouco da sua tormenta pessoal.

Lying awake in the dim of the lights that you’ve

Hung from your wall, I can just see your chest rise and

Falling through holes that I’ve dug for myself —

Is it half the night gone? — I’ve spent half the night hoping I’m wrong

What’s going on in that head of yours darling?

Is there some dream you can take me on?

What’s going on in your head?

If you knew what I’m think you’d turn around

Tell me you love me, now tell me I don’t need to worry at all

What does it mean that I found you asleep when I came

When I got here there was something I wanted:

To ask what you meant when you said that you

Want to try “harder than this” — was there something that I should have said?

What’s going on in that head of yours, darling?

Why do I feel like there’s something wrong?

What’s going on in your head?

If you knew what I’m thinking you’d turn around

Please, baby, turn around. Tell me I don’t need to worry at all

Lying awake after half the night spent

Now I turn to the wall — guess I’ll finally give up but that’s

Just when you pull me in close

You whisper you sleep worse without me and I close my eyes
