The band has now completed a new album called Black sails which explores a more electronic and ambient sound, but still keeping the warmth from earlier releases. Aquatic drones, psychedelic suggestions and inspired melodies overlay on each other on the 10 featured tracks. Black Sails is a voyage on the seven seas and features a rich tapestry of emotions and imagination.
Black Sails marks the 20th anniversary of Sleepyard.
