Following an extraordinary run of major label remixes for artists such as Kiiara (Atlantic) and Børns (Interscope), it was only natural for Los Angeles producer AWAY to make his debut original release. His single “Sleepwalker” feat. London Thor via Lowly Palace, has already made its mark with 2 million streams to date and an accompanying music video that will captivate your memory in a refreshingly haunting way.
Introspectively one of the most profound artists leading the charge for the next generation of music producers, he has already garnered support from industry heavyweights such as Zane Lowe and Billboard.
From conception to execution, there is very little that passes by AWAY’s meticulous attention to detail – To him, his artistry is everything. “Sleepwalker” embodies that very mindset more so than any of his previous works, with his newest single showcasing the musical technicality and emotional awareness that belies his edgy brand aesthetic. “Sleepwalker is a song about the different emotions you experience when someone leaves your life unexpectedly.
Confusion, sadness, apathy, and anger,” he said in reference to his release. His ultimate goal is to create music that people will feel and remember, to establish his AWAY moniker as a project that is his fully authentic and serves as an expression of vulnerability, and his personal truths. With releases like “Sleepwalker” blurring the lines between genres and challenging the status quo, he is well on his way.
