Sleepwalking is a song about feeling like you exist in your own bubble, watching the world around you unfold and the people passing by. It’s about observing life around you, but not feeling like you are taking part in what is happening, although you are present. «We chose to pick up where we left with the EP, and stay somewhat within the same universe. The basis of the song was recorded live with guitar, drums and vocals, but we also experimented with other elements during post-production, trying to create a bit of tension.». The Other End is reaching new heights, and Sleepwalking may very well become your new favorite tune to get through the winter.
