American alt-folk band Gunslingers have just released their debut album, Green Acres Motel. Dusted with rock, acoustics, and country, the band rehash the old-school blues. Taken from this album is How To Sleep, the track that introduces the Gunslingers style and charm. It has a pronounced Wild West charm with its bare nostalgia and stringy aesthetic. The EP delves into the minutiae of human emotions to deliver immersive narratives. Listeners of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and the like are sure to enjoy this band.

How To Sleep, in more ways than one, represents the vibe and virtue of the band. The toasty warm canvas reveals a dazzling darkness roaming beneath it. Gunslingers present versatile sound spaces, with layers of musical and poetic rhetoric packed into it. Drenched in the luminous acoustic drizzle, the listener experiences the despondent vapors of Lou’s vocals. And in this simultaneity, we are meant to discover the intricate complexities of universal dualities, including life and death, joy and grief, crime and punishment.

Gunslingers is made by Lou Heneise, John Swan II on the harmonies, banjo, trumpet, percussion, Michael Vasquez on mandolin, and Jon Howard on the fiddle. And some of their primary musical influences are Tom Waits, Shovels and Rope, Shakey Graves, among others.

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
