True to the song title, Occlusions’ “Sleepwalker” hazily meanders through a dream state, a deep, slumbering expression of heartache and pain. “I loved you until it stung,” they sing. A gooey, shape-shifting outer layer of production, something you’d find in the horror film The Blob, forms a thick coating around their voice. Yet Occlusions remains angelic, as their voice carries a certainly heavenly, intoxicating warmth. Still, it carries a puncturing, evocative point that could draw blood.
