Hypnos is the recording project of Neil Freese and Sai Sriskandarajah.
We live one mile apart, but we create our songs asynchronously from separate studios — our music is shaped by (and made in response to) the erosion of personal time that comes with parenthood.
Our first LP, Robots & Strangers, was released in April 2023. The album takes sonic cues from 60s harmonies, 80s new wave, and 90s alternative. Narratively and visually, it's a critique of technology-induced malaise. What happens when our only interactions on a day-to-day basis are with either robots or strangers?
