Sleepy Gary With His Astounding Track "Staring at My Phone"

Sleepy Gary is the solo project of Daniel Feldman, a Brooklyn-based musician originally from Rockville, Maryland. His debut album, 21 Love Songs, is a colossal, three-volume collection many years in the making — incubated over seven years in DC, Baltimore, and New York. The album reached its culmination in 2020 when Feldman was quarantined in a 600 square foot Bushwick apartment with his music producer roommate, Gabriel Stanley of Isotopia Records. (The opus was co-produced by Stanley, mixed by Grammy-nominated Dave Weingarten, and mastered by Grammy-winning Alex DeTurk.) Sleepy’s sound combines bedroom pop and psychedelic synth-rock; think Tame Impala meets Rex Orange County. Each of the 21 songs offers a discrete ode to the many iterations of love: at turns unrequited, sensual, half-hearted, budding, obsessive, and dearly departed. The album takes our standard notion of a love song and cracks it wide open in anthems like “Scooby Stacks,” an electrofunk missive yearning for the vibrancy of a pre-Covid New York, or “Knuckle Bleacher,” a break-up song with the police, written during the civil unrest precipitated by George Floyd’s death at the hands of law enforcement. Following the release of his newest single "Staring at My Phone" which is also featured on his new album "Love Songs", he projects a very soothing track that will definitely captivate your ears. Beginning with dreamy instrumentation leading onto his sweet and luscious vocals he completes the single fully. Explaining the track further it's an ode to the love-hate relationships we have with our devices and the way they complicate modern romance. This bedroom pop anthem is for the Instagram DM flirts, the ones who get left on read, and those who long for the nostalgic simplicity of our noncellular past. To the vocals and production, this track will certainly have you vibing. Being just perfect for a late-night drive or listening during a picnic. Go stream "Staring at My Phone"!
