Paris-based pop punk quartet, Two Trains Left have released their captivating new single, “Lack Of Sleep” today. Tackling the issue of mental exhaustion, the single is carried by a haunting melody and intense lyrics that urge listeners to confront the root cause of their exhaustion rather than relying on quick fixes. Listen to the track now below.
Vocalist/guitarist, Dimitri Ben Hamou said of the song, “‘Lack Of Sleep’ is screaming the words many are too exhausted to speak, searching the reason of tiredness everywhere but inside your mind, taking pills instead of healing.”
Following a tour with Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! last summer, the two bands created the track together, recorded, mixed and produced by Bert Poncet and Bastien Lafaye of Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! Blurring the line between the realms of dream and reality, the music video pulls inspiration from Wes Craven’s Nightmare on Elm Street to create a hauntingly beautiful visualization.
Pulling inspiration from Neck Deep and Foo Fighters, the group offers a perfect blend of angsty pop punk paired with soft self-reflection. Their infectious energy and catchy melodies alongside the fantastical and evocative music video make for a personal, introspective track about facing fears and inner demons.
