Exclusive Premiere: Alternative Rock Duo Sleep Nation Brings The Energy in New Single & Music Video For “Get Out”

Published

on

Rock Duo Sleep Nation

“Get Out” by Sleep Nation gives us modern rock sounds while conveying nostalgia on the sets of the song’s video. The track has high sound quality with rebellious guitar riffs and added vocal effects during the chorus. Moreover, the electronic vocal modulations used throughout the song further diversify the variety on this track, ensuring listeners a unique experience with this new rock hit. It’s a real high-energy headbanger.

Sleep Nation covers many things in this song but emphasizes the idea of getting away from stereotypes and moving on from places you feel like you don’t quite fit in. “Get Out” is a solid and energetic tune about life’s stereotypes and how it can be hard to find your place. Along with the compelling track, its accompanying video has clever visuals and an attention-grabbing narrative.

 While they never let their heroes from decades past drift too far out of the rearview, one thing’s for certain: the boys of Sleep Nation have their sights set on the future of rock ‘n’ roll. The project was conceived by lead vocalist Bran Merritt in 2010. Drummer Joey Lauretta responded to Merritt’s Facebook ad, the two clicked instantly, and the rest is history! The name “Sleep Nation” was a product of both Anne Le Dressay’s “Sleep is a Country” and Merritt and Lauretta’s habit of sleeping into the afternoon after staying up late writing songs. 

Hailing from Music City, this alternative rock outfit has opened for national touring acts such as Adema and Sponge. Because they always give their all for their live shows, they’ve come to be known as the “Out of Control Rock ‘N’ Roll Duo.” Though Merritt and Lauretta are the sole members of the group, Sleep Nation’s stage presence rivals that of a full orchestra.

In 2014, the duo’s music video and single release for “I Want You Back” landed the band a spot on Nashville radio station 102.9 The Buzz’s “Local Buzz Top 25.” Sunset Island Music ranked Sleep Nation #2 among the Top 25 Unsigned Bands around the world. In 2015, the pair’s second official music video “Mr. Unlucky” was released in promotion of the film “Hair of the Dog,” directed by Michael Butts. They also wrote “I’m a Werewolf, But That’s Ok” for the movie’s soundtrack. In 2016, the band celebrated the release of their self-titled debut album. The single “Slip” became the album’s second track to be named 102.9 The Buzz’s “Local Buzz Cut of the Week.” 2018 saw the arrival of singles “Scream & Shout” and “American Way” via Victory Music Buzz.

Q. How’d you get into the music industry to begin with? I started in St Louis, and it started out as a hobby.

Q. Why would an artist get dropped from a major label? Does it all just come down to the bottom line? An artist would get dropped by not meeting expectations versus the risk of the investment.
