The track was released on March 3rd - and fans and critics alike are excited.
Poised with style, the track balances country and acoustic well, in a rock-like fashion - ultimately building to an profound crescendo. Lead vocalist Paul has a voice that’s full of character, sensitive and rich - and it is empowered by the organic, subtle harmonies in the extremely-catchy chorus.
‘The World was Sleeping’ is a very suave and contemporary lick on a matured genre. It lures the listener in with the first pick of the string - and will make one listen again. The band have been together for two years, and have picked up airplay on BBC 6 Music, collaborated with huge international producers.
Critics have been overwhelmed with the performances from the Essex outfit, who have picked up a reputation as a sensational live act. Building on their success, The Landed will be kicking 2014 off with the recording of brand new content, as well as a slot at the revered Canadian Music Week in Toronto in May.
They have claimed 2014 will be a massive year for them - and it’s not hard to believe they’re telling the truth.
