Death Valley Sleepers, despite a plural name, is one man — Tobias Winberg. Winberg, who hails from Denmark, writes songs that find themselves in the realm of highly infectious indie pop. The vocals are soothing and relaxed while the guitar, with an added power, delves into the psychedelic.
My introduction to Death Valley Sleepers comes from the Eggnog Series Two EP Club. More specifically, as the first set has five 3-inch discs, the introduction came via First Club Compilation, the only EP with various artists. “Small Town Bells” closes the EP on a definite high point.
I posted about the string of EPs on Cover Art yesterday — read the Eggnog Series Two EP Club Cover Art piece.
