Currently touring around Australia, Sydney ambient/melodic post-rockers SLEEPMAKESWAVES have released a new video for their single ‘Great Northern’, taken from their second album ‘Love of Cartography’ released this month.


The video was directed by Brisbane-based Bradley Coombs and features a skyward-driven protagonist.

‘Great Northern’ follows the first taste of the record ‘Something Like Avalanches’ which premiered on triple j in May & aired at community radio including FBi, 4zzz, PBS, RRR, RTR and more.


With a series of unforgettable and thundering sequences ‘Love of Cartography’ presents the band’s continued desire to map new creative directions, integrating new elements into the ‘post-rock’ framework while keeping touch with their melodic and cinematic roots.


The album debuted at #31 on the ARIA Chart last week & #2 on the AIR 100% Independent Charts.


Recorded in Byron Bay at Studio 301 with producer Nick DiDia (Karnivool, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Powderfinger, Rage Against The Machine), the album’s 10 tracks range from the epic bombast of ‘Perfect Detonator’ to the delicate and subtle electronic flourishes of ‘A Little Spark.’


‘Love of Cartography’ is out now through Bird’s Robe Records/MGM
