Released nearly ten years to the day after the initial album release, this is the first time the album will be presented on vinyl. This will be a limited run of 500 copies. The album has been remastered for vinyl by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, who also mastered last year's Hide Your Eyes vinyl release.Drowned in a Sea of Sound is one of Clairecords' most successful and revered releases. The album takes nothing but the best elements of the band's highly acclaimed EP's and blends them with some entirely new experimental soundscapes. The Daysleepers trademark sound of mixing Dreampop, Post-Punk and New Wave styles is still very much present, and at times pushes even beyond those boundaries. Imagine the sounds of the Cure, Cocteau Twins, The Chameleons and Slowdive rolled into one. These 10 tracks touch on a wide variety of sounds and emotions ranging from spacey ethereal drones to blissful up-tempo dreampop beauty. For fans of the early out-of-print EP's, "Hide Your Eyes" and "The Soft Attack", "Drowned in a Sea of Sound" is a must have. It is proof that The Daysleepers have fully matured and discovered their true sound.This vinyl pressing of Drowned marks the celebrated return of the Daysleepers, who will be releasing their new album Creation in 2018 as well.
