Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Collapse

Brisbane, Australia. Tim Bettinson is a 17-year-old guy who just decided to start his musical project. He began with posting on the internet his fantastic first single, Vapour, under the weird moniker of Vancouver Sleep Clinic and he’s now back with the second, Collapse, which is even better, so buried in reverb and drenched in falsetto vocals.

Despite his young age, Tim succedeed in creating an extremely mature 4AD-sound, that’s clearly influenced by Bon Iver, but topped off with ambient parentheses (in a much better way than Indians did last year) and post-James Blake beats.

Vancouver Sleep Clinic has a bright future ahead. Keep your eyes peeled for his forthcoming debut EP.
