Inspired & the Sleep “Big Wide World”

San Diego duo, Inspired & the Sleep are preparing to release their self-titled album on March 6th, 2020. The latest single from the album is “Big Wide World.” Even back in 2012 when I reviewed their single, “Take Pills (Instructed Bliss),” I noted how the band sounded like Vampire Weekend. The same holds true for “Big Wide World.” With the new jack swing beat and MGMT-style synthesizer, there are clearly other influences there but something about Max Greenhalgh’s voice will always sound like Ezra Koenig to me.
