"Casual Diamond" was the first completely formed Sleep ∞ Over song we heard. There'd been other ones before, but this one was crystal clear. It was everything that we wanted a band with the infinity sign in its name to be: layered, deep, complex and supremely textural. It doesn't sound like anything else because it sounds like everything. Now there's a video, directed by Christine Aprile (of Silent Diane) and featuring both Aprile as well as Sleep ∞ Over's sole official member Stefanie Franciotti against a white backdrop with plenty of edges softened like it came from a degraded VHS tape. Sleep ∞ Over's Forever is out September 27th on Hippos in Tanks.
