If Vancouver Sleep Clinic really were the name of a sleep clinic focused on helping people get past their insomnia, it’d probably be a total failure. For the life of me, I can’t imagine ever falling asleep to Tim Bettinson’s atmospheric and ambient alt pop, so often doused in spectacularly haunting electronic production. I feel very fortunate to have caught VSC on tour at intimate SF dive Bottom Of The Hill last spring, and I can assure you, not a single person in the audience dozed off to his beautifully melting music. The contrary was true instead; we were all transfixed and intoxicated by VCS’s music from his excellent 2017 debut album Revival. And now Vancouver Sleep Clinic has released yet another stunning escapade into the hidden chambers of our hearts, a gorgeously moving indie electro meets alt-pop ballad named Silver Lining. The single follows on VCS’s recent EP, Therapy Phase 01, which featured guest appearances by the likes of Raury and THEY.’s Drew Love. Tim Bettinson explains: “Silver Lining is about watching someone become too good for you. I’ve lost people I care about to the limelight before, and while you’re trying to be happy for them, sometimes you just miss the days when everything was so simple.” Find out about Vancouver Sleep Clinic’s 2018 tour dates, here.
