Definitely a banger.
This latest @Sleep_Token single really goes to show that you can make great music because it feels right and not have to contain yourself to a audible genre. Every new song is amazing.— BEAR (@BearWinters) April 20, 2023
Sleep Token is just Five Finger Death Punch for people who like Radiohead.— andrew (@payneporter13) April 20, 2023
