Label: Through Love Four years on from their enthrallingly epic and ambitious debut, We Never Learned To Live are back with their sophomore release ‘The Sleepwalk Transmissions’. Since their debut album the band have recorded a BBC Maida Vale session, toured the UK and Europe multiple times and taken in festivals such as Arc Tan Gent and Incubate, garnering acclaim and a loyal following. The time spent away and care to their craft has proved to be incredibly beneficial to the post-hardcore troupe, with all of their grandiose soundscapes intact and expanded upon with an explosion of dramatic urgency. Not too dissimilar from genre progenitors Hopesfall, Thursday and Deftones, the UK quintet’s sound presents an intoxicating dichotomy of the serene and the devastating. The songs solidify WNLTL’s small but stellar catalogue of stirring post-hardcore as soul speaking works of transcendental art. Familiar without a hint of playing it safe and emotive without being trite, ‘The Sleepwalk Transmissions’ is sure to captivate all those it comes into contact with.
