VOODOO VEGAS — Sleeping In The Rain

In the past we have described the pump dragon vocals from Brit Rockers VOODOO VEGAS as “filled with intensity…” and have we enjoyed those propelling drums and a fizz that’s almost punk in terms of speed and vehemence…

Now they have released ‘Sleeping in the Rain’ that’s a little less louder but no less important. It’s an acoustic single designed to raise awareness about the national scandal that is rough sleeping and to help Crisis fight homelessness.

We had a listen to Sleeping In The Rain, which will be the third single from the album “Freak Show Candy Floss
