“Burn Into Light” by Sleepytime Gorilla Museum

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, are back with their first album, in over a decade entitled Sleepytime Gorilla Museum of the Last Human Being, available February 23, 2024. It will be the very first release on AVANT NIGHT, a new imprint headed by Nick Ohler and facilitated by Joyful Noise Recordings (Medicine Singers, Marnie Stern).

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum returns today with the album’s second single “Burn Into Light.” Described by one listener as a “visceral album highlight,” the track reminisces of an apocalyptic doom not yet suffered but seemingly inevitable. Either by fiery cataclysm or painfully slow suffocation, we wonder what evidence will we leave behind, if any?

The track additionally comes alongside an accompanying visual, described by director Tas Limur (Conjuring Visions, Inc.) as “a mesmerizing visual tapestry.”

The music video weaves its spell among masterful studio scenes filmed in Los Angeles, through mystical woods of Oakland, and into enchanting forests of Cape Cod,” Limur continues. “A cinematic journey unfolds, capturing the essence of the band’s upcoming album, Of the Last Human Being. The viewer is beckoned into a world where sound and imagery converge, where mystery and emotion dance in tandem, and where the esoteric allure of the band is vividly brought to life. This obscure gem invites the audience to immerse themselves in the haunting glow of “Burn into Light””.
