Arms and Sleepers are a duo consisting of Max Lewis and Mirza Ramic, who originally formed in Maine following the break-up of their previous band The List Exists. Ramic has previously explained that their name “is the meaning of so much of the world today and in the past, and probably the future. While so many are fighting and killing (‘arms’), others are ignoring it all (the ‘sleepers’)”.
Arms and Sleepers are currently touring in Europe following the (self)release of their last album, Life is Everywhere, which was co-produced by MusicMap favourite Sun Glitters. The album sees them taking their trip-hop stylings into more up-beat, sun-soaked territory, such as on the jazzy instrumental hip-hop of ‘Pan Am’ (below), and is available now on Bandcamp.
