ARMS AND SLEEPERS release new single “Belfast” featuring Sofia Insua


The eclectic electronic artist Arms and Sleepers has shared the breathtaking new track ‘Belfast (feat. Sofia Insua)’, lifted from his forthcoming 14th full-length album, ‘What Tomorrow Brings’, set for release on March 1st, 2024 via Berlin’s Pelagic Records.

‘What Tomorrow Brings’ is a sonic exploration of artist and producer Mirza Ramic’s experience of fleeing war-torn Bosnia in the early 1990s and the death of his father in the conflict, his life-changing journey mapped over four, distinct musical sections.

‘Belfast (feat. Sofia Insua)’ comes from the album’s second section, ‘Melancholy’, and is a haunting, waltz-time ballad that strikes a cinematic balance between nostalgia and despondency. Featuring an arresting vocal lead from actor, singer, composer and multidisciplinary artist Sofia Insua, Mirza took inspiration for the track, and indeed the entire album, in part from Kenneth Branagh’s award-winning, 2021 feature film ‘Belfast’. “The album is divided into 4 sections, titled Innocence, Melancholy, Rupture and Reflection,”says Mirza, “it is a journey of being forced out of your neighbourhood, your community, your city and country as a child; which is what happened to me and what the film Belfast is about.”
