Inspired & The Sleep is a little band out of San Diego that creates music much in the vein of artists like Tune-Yards. “While We’re Young” in fact has that band written all over it. The song is sunny lo-fi pop at its finest; upbeat and filled with joyous blissful indie vocals, tribal percussive beats, and twee acoustic guitar.
The video for “While We’re Young” is simply footage from another time. Jamie Harley put together the video with found footage from what most definitely appears to be the 1980s. Odd, but not entirely surprising, that bands like Inspired & The Sleep and Tune-Yards seem right at home in that era. Must be the fashion of the era.
“While We’re Young” is off the band’s 2011 album, Teenager.
