Producer, singer and songwriter Keelan Mak returns with his vulnerable and endearing new track "Sleep Talker" ahead of his debut EP "Test The Shallows".
Australia’s best-kept secret until now, Keelan Mak, has returned with an incredibly heartfelt and nostalgic new single “Sleep Talker”. The tender track reminisces on a previous relationship Mak had experienced – where the only time the couple could reveal the inner workings of their heart was through sleeptalking.
Tackling the universal issue of communication within relationships, Mak’s open and empathetic songwriting allows you to be taken gently by the hand through Mak’s journey. Speaking about the latest single, Keelan revealed “We obviously exaggerated the concept… I wasn’t sleep talking with them, but there were definitely a lot of moments where we only got honest when the lights were off and we we’re talking in bed. The whole relationship felt very sleepy and sedated at times which fit the theme perfectly.”
Keelan Mak’s personal writing, combined with the blush production and dreamy vocals on “Sleep Talker” has set the bar high for his upcoming debut EP “Test The Shallows” out later this year. Until then, we will have to continue getting in our feels with the premiere of “Sleep Talker” below.
