Sunsleeper unveil debut album “You Can Miss Something & Not Want It Back”

Rude News


Salt Lake City’s emo/rock band, Sunsleeper, is excited to share their brand new album, "You Can Miss Something & Not Want It Back" out today via Rude Records. The album was produced / engineered by Nathan Hussey of All Get Out and centers around the theme of change with a tang of nostalgia. Throughout the writing of the record, the band drew from a 90's indie influence to create a contemporary emo-rock vide with a focus on structure an hooks.

Off the 10-track album, comes their brand new single and music video for "Better Now". Lead vocalist, Jeffery Mudgett elaborates, "it's easily one of the most upbeat sounding songs I've ever written, though lyrically it leans back towards our despondent comfort zone." He continues, "This song again details the duality of my headspace. On one hand I'm feeling guilty about taking forever to propose to my wife, delaying our future with my financial and emotional baggage, etc., but on the other hand I know those things are miniscule in comparison to the happiness we bring to each other. I like to think this song too has a feeling of hopefulness to it as well."

The single follows the release of "No Cure", a song about how Mudgett felt after one of his musical influences was outed for sexual misconduct. It is about how he was left complately shaken since the ambitions for Sunsleeper were influenced by this person and their band. The song is about him.

In addition the band released "Soften Up", which is about internalizing feelings of disdain while presenting onesef as put together on the outside. Mudgett elaborates, "The video and song parallel each other. It describes how on the inside that is typically where the discomfort and anxiety lives, and while on the outside this is where we put up a front or a smile, like nothing is wrong." This theme came at a time when change was evident in the lives of each member of the band. "Soften Up" is the perfect depiction of what they were going through.
