“About Last Night,” a new album just released by soul-southern rock inspired indie band, Sleeper Agent, grabs the audience with hard-driving melodies and distinctive vocals. Each song on this album has its own unique sound.
The intros sometimes prepare the listener for up is coming up, but often lead to surprises, like on “Sweetheart.” Providing a touch of continuity is lead singer Alex Kandel with her sultry Nashville voice. Edgy vocals and compelling melodies will push “About Last Night” to critical acclaim, as their debut album “Celabraision” received.
Singer-guitartist Tony Smith shows off his talents with memorable instrumental accompaniments. Writing lyrics specifically for Kandel’s voice also highlights Smith’s songwriting abilities. Joining Smith and Kandel are Lee Williams on bass, Josh Martin on guitar, Justin Wilson on drums, and keyboardist Scott Gardner.
Electronic Musician had this to say: “An album of stomping anthems. Alex Kandel and Tony Smith maintain their defiant edge.”
Rolling Stone said: “Sleeper Agent made it feel natural with hormone-popping exuberance (‘Take It Off’), sharp songcraft and digital-era polish.”
Sleeper Agent, from Bowling Green, KY, is on its North American tour with stops at the Firefly Music Festival in Delaware, Shaky Knees Music Festival in Nashville, and the Vans Warped Tour, ending in Nashville in July.
