I'm just discovering this fantastic band. I find it to be high-caliber prog-pop. Jazz pianos, complex musicianship, but all in a pop context. Very enjoyable modern prog.
 
 
Anyone else into this great group?

Also, they released an ALL 8-bit version of their most recent album.

Is Sleeping At Last the name of their latest album, or this some other band that they did remixes for?  I am confused. Embarrassed

They seem good in principle, but I find the vocals and overall tone a bit too whiny and earnest. Not for me, it seems.

Yeah, they are a hell of a band. I have the drummer added on facebook really humble guy.
I remember, I commented he was a real genius playing the drums and in reply he told me that he really doubted any of that.
You should also check out some versions they did on some Final Fantasy Songs on an album called "Cafe SQ".

True, the vocalist timbre is a little whiny, but the backing vocals the other members do are compensating, otherwise there is a female colaboration in a video, a song titled "Nice to meet you".

Heard these guys in TinyChat today. Great stuff, but sounded a bit cheesy in some parts. Wasn't hindering them too much though.

Plus they have Caio on drums.
