ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Trembling Spheres is Canadian singer-songwriter Christopher Yip’s musical manifesto. Produced by Jonathan Anderson, The Ghosts of Sleepwalk Town is a collection of beautifully crafted and defiantly hopeful songs. Breathtaking melodies float above a textured dreamscape of sound; atmospheric layers of guitars and deep drums and bass are the bed for a tender and awakened voice. Disarming and moving, Trembling Spheres’ debut is a powerful statement of human longing and a welcome addition to Canada’s burgeoning indie scene.

“Canada's Trembling Spheres create nice, smooth, slightly swirling dreamy modern pop with nice, soaring melodies…. The Ghosts of Sleepwalk Town features some spectacular songwriting. Instead of just tossing out generic throwaway pop, these folks obviously spent some time coming up with smart, inventive songs that hold up to many repeated spins. And the best part is...that the more you spin the songs the better they sound. Nine precise reflective cuts here including "Last Night," "Radiant One" (our favorite cut), "First Time," "My Shining Star," and "Chokehold." Really beautiful stuff here, delivered with true style.”

- babysue, Top Picks, February 2009 (Rating: 5++ out of a possible 6)

“Reaching a point of transcendence in music is a lot harder than it sounds. For every band looking to best U2's most emotionally earnest moment (probably the "And you give yourself away" line in "With or Without You"), nine out of ten fall flat. And that's why it's so special when a band like Vancouver's Trembling Spheres can. Group mastermind Christopher Yip wrote all nine songs on the quintet's debut, blending hometown shoegaze legends Daytona with ambitious late '90s emo group Elliot. Yip sings with a purity most singers lack — he's able to reach those emotional high points without straining his voice — and the simplicity of his melodies and music push The Ghosts of Sleepwalk Town over the top. Other bands show more ambition or originality but few are this damn catchy.”

— Ian Gormely, Exclaim! Canada's Music Authority
