UK rockers Acres have spent the last two years improving their sound and their songwriting craft and have returned with their newest album, of which second single Talking In Your Sleep is a good example of their style: a melodic hardcore punk with emotionally charged lyrics. As singer Ben Lumber explains:

The song is about being lied to by someone who you think really cares about you. When you think everything is perfect, in reality it’s really not. Talking in your sleep is a metaphor for the words and lies subtly unravelling self-consciously.

This is made clear by the last lyrics, with Lumber’s voice echoing “I hope you choke on your excuses and think about all of the things you’ve done that are wrong.” The music video shows a couple in Latvia, getting high together, going to a club and eventually waking up the next morning to find that one of them has passed away, allegedly from an overdose. The flashing lights from the nightclub, combined with the quick cuts and shaky camera movements convey the panic and chaos in the video, which in turn works well with the emotional lyrics.
