The band says, “Sleeptalk’ is a song that tries to capture the sensation of dreaming about someone you haven’t seen in a long time: The sense of nostalgia, the tension between relief and sadness, that dreamy haze you feel as you try to make sense of it all,” Saint Slumber tell Atwood Magazine. “We wanted to create a musical atmosphere that replicated that place between being awake and asleep: We took the guitar parts of the song and processed them through heavy chorus and VHS-esque tape corruption, which gives the effect of a dreamy memory from childhood. We love what the song turned into, and we hope that people will resonate with the complex and bittersweet sensations that we tried to replicate.”
