Album: Sleep Walk
Release Date: March. 24, 2017
Burlington, Ontario’s own Beautiful Nothing have just released their sophomore album entitled Sleep Walk. Beautiful Nothing are currently on their first tour of 2017 and have an album release show in Toronto on March 30th at the Horseshoe Tavern. The band is no stranger to success, accomplishing significant college radio and video airplay across the country. They have also shared the stage with some big Canadian names including The Trews, Monster Truck, Arkells and Finger Eleven. They have also been nominated for a Hamilton Music Award in the category of Alternative Recording of the Year in 2015. Needless to say, the release of Sleep Walk has been highly anticipated.
The six track album, although short, has a lot to offer. Sleep Walk opens with “Meet Me in My Dream”, upon first listen you can immediately hear the electronic influences that carry the entire album. Next up is the late 2016 single “The Unknown” followed by newest single “Million Different Ways”. Beautiful Nothing had a futuristic and innovative sound, perfectly mixed with the alternative sound that you love. The mix of influences makes this album a pure work of art, it’s done with such precision, it makes the talent seeping through your speakers almost tangible. Throughout listening to this album I couldn’t help but notice the sound at times was similar to Canadian favourites Mother Mother. My personal favourite on Sleep Walk is by far “Crazy Now”, the track is catchy and just has this feel good vibe, makes you definitely want to turn the volume up.
All in all Sleep Walk is a terrific album and definitely worth adding to your library. If you are in the Ontario area check out their website for some upcoming live shows.

I have always had a passion for writing and music so working for Canadian Beats is right up my alley.
