Sleep it Off emerged as a personal expression of a collective moment. With a steady flow of extreme news stories and events around the world, it expresses the impossible desire to be woken up when everything goes back to "normal". And poses the question, "if not that, then what now?" Hope is built on circles, loops, and seasons.
