Next month, Young Magic will release their third full-length, Still Life, via Carpark. Ahead of the album, we're pleased to share the new single "Sleep Now." It's a lithe, lovely song, but far from insubstantial, with electronic and organic elements interweaving to form a fluidly shape-shifting pop soundscape. Connecting with us via email, the band’s Melati Malay gave us the story behind the track:

"This song came about while recording on the island of Lembongan, Indonesia. Each morning I would ride a beat-up moped up and over the cliffs, getting lost down dirt roads through tiny villages of seaweed farmers. It's another side of Indonesia, still largely untouched by the feverish development of other places like Jakarta, where I grew up. I was hoping to capture the warmth and color of this island, but also the complexities that inevitably seem to manifest when development meets paradise."
