Closer Still | fear of falling asleep (Single)


TENDER consist of musical partners James Cullen and Dan Cobb, and together they co-produced ‘Fear Of Falling Asleep’ alongside Gianluca Buccellati (Tei Shei, Colouring). The songs were recorded across the band’s respective bedrooms before adding finishing touches at London’s Hackney Road Studios. Inspired by the moments that come just before sleep when silence descends, and doubt and fear and desire take over, Cullen explains, “Lying awake at night, when it’s just me and my mind racing, that’s when I drift into the darkest parts of myself. Until I wrote these songs, I never really knew if anyone else struggled with those same thoughts and fears.”
