On this debut full length album, 8 Year Sleep, The Refractors catalog their musical journal entries beginning with the year 2001. Eight years, eight memories, eight movements. Each track represents a collection of dreams, grievances and flashbacks, woven with the accompanied instruments, field recordings, and silence. With a nod towards political events taking place in the last eight years of American history (the first track, for example, is titled A Fall Disguised as a Rise), the duo captures emotions with a surreal juxtaposition of abandoned fragments

The song was able to drop heart rates by 35% in 40 women more than Mozart and Coldplay-but whether or not it promoted sleep was not part of the study. Richter is not looking for scientific proof that it works, per se. Brain scans are interesting and all that, he says.
