Premiere: Sleeping Weather's "I'll Find a Way"

Premiere: Sleeping Weather's "I'll Find a Way"

Today Scene Point Blank is excited to host a brand new song from Denver's Sleeping Weather. The song, "I'll Find A Way" will appear on the band's upcoming split with Placeholder, to be released later this year on Escapist Records.

The three piece band is named after a Small Brown Bike song and likens their sound to The Promise Ring. They released I Was Just on My Way Out earlier this year.

Check out the song here.

One of our features here at Scene Point Blank is our semi-daily quickie Q&A: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook or twitter and we'll post one interview every Monday-Thursday. Well, sometimes we miss a day, but it will be four each week regardless.

After our social media followers get the first word, we'll later post a wrap-up here at the site and archive 'em here. This week check out Q&As with Infera Bruo, Author and Punisher Bombshell Rocks and KEN Mode.

Galen (Infera Bruo)
SPB: Do you have a favorite type of van or bus?
Galen: One that doesn't break down is preferable. We generally end up renting a van so it's typically not a problem. Sometimes if there's a back-line we'll drive cars, which feels pretty stupid but can save a few dollars. We've never been in a bus but I'm sure there are some nice ones out there. A few years ago I was planning on living in a van. Probably an Econoline or something like that. Then I realized that it would suck to live in a van and got back to working and paying rent.
Tristan Shone (Author and Punisher)
SPB: You are building your own instruments and that is quite impressive on its own. How do you go about building those “Drone/Dub Machines?” 
Tristan: It is a long process where I initially have an idea of a sound and also a motion that I think would be satisfying to marry to that sound. When these two elements come together in my mind I am then able to really geek out on the details of design and fabrication. Usually the machines I make have a direct relationship to the technology I am working with in my job (e.g. large electron microscopes, precision optical equipment, CNC machinery) and I adapt some of the technical elements to my designs various forms. After that I take the CAD model and machine the parts and assemble. For the next few months I program the functionality of each to work with various music software and just learn to play the damn thing. 
Christian Määttä (Bombshell Rocks)
SPB: How has your local music scene changed since you were last active?
Christian: Well, the majority of us live in other cities today so it's hard to keep up with the local scene in Västerås where we are from. But I know there is a new generation of kids struggling to make themselves a name. The biggest change is the lack of good venues. Most of them have been shut down unfortunately. But people in the scene have always been creative and have always found ways to put on concerts, so I’m not worried
Jesse Matthewson (KEN Mode)
SPB: You recently released a live recording done at the BBC, what was recording there like and was it something you wanted to do/thought about at all? 
Jesse: The recording experience at BBC was on a short list of some of the coolest things we've been able to do as a band! I honestly never thought we'd be doing one, and now I hope we can do another in the future so we can release an LP combining the two sessions...I always loved the Unsane - Peel Sessions LP growing up, so if we can have our own, that'd be a pretty excellent feather in our caps.
