Songwriter and guitarist, Austin North and his band Sleepspent has released his new single “Come Smile With Me” from his debut EP It’s Better If You Don’t Speak Or Think. Now a trio, the band also includes Cecilia Otero on bass and Josh Mendoza on drums. The album was produced by Chris Common (Minus The Bear, Chelsea Wolfe, Le Butcherettes) and will offer fans a perfect introduction to North’s ability to create atmospheric, experimental, genre-defying music.
“Come Smile With Me’ started out being written while I was in still in San Diego,” commented the 21-year-old North of the song. “It’s mostly about miscommunication and how people don’t think before they speak, or don’t care about the impact their words have.” North began performing as a UC San Diego student before eventually returning to his hometown of El Paso to form Sleepspent with friend and co-writer, Aaron Quintanilla.”
