It's been roughly 2.5 years since we had the pleasure of introducing Sir Sly to the world. Damn, that's a long time.
Top that off with the fact that we haven't heard new material from them since 2014, and, well... this new release is a welcome return.
I can imagine that the song title "Expectations" in some way alludes to the fact that after such a successful debut, the trio are wary of the high expectations surrounding their sophomore release. And in light of that, what's cool about this song is that while they could have played up their established sound, they've chosen to go a completely different route.
"Expectations" is dark, haunting, and sees Sir Sly take things in a new direction. It's exactly the type of release they need to get fans excited about what's to come.
