A is for Arrows (Alessia Balasbas, Eric Robbs) is an electronic-pop duo based in Toronto, Canada. Not too long ago, they released a visualizer for their “Talking in My Sleep” single.
A is for Arrows – “Talking in My Sleep” visualizer
“I’m not afraid of the dark when you’re lying here. It’s too late for guitar. Don’t wanna wake you from your sleep, but there’s a song asleep inside of me. So I toss, I turn, I’m up all night. Now I’m questioning my sanity and I worry without you. Who I might be, I wanna give you more than anxiety. But I’m afraid of talking to you when I sleep.” – lyrics
‘Talking in My Sleep’ tells a heartfelt tale of a young woman who is dealing with depression and mental health. Apparently, she wears her heart on her sleeve and shares a relationship with someone who means the world to her.
‘Talking in My Sleep’ serves as a fantastic presentation to what listeners can expect to hear on A is for Arrows’ upcoming debut EP. The highly personal, vulnerable, and self-deprecating collection of songs (with a get-back-up resilience) was produced by Joel Stouffer (bülow, Dragonette, Ria Mae).

‘You’re scared of the words ‘I love you’ slipping from your lips at the wrong time out of fear that it won’t be enough. That the words alone aren’t enough to express what this person means to you.” – Alessia Balasbas
A is for Arrows couldn’t be more different from each other. The duo met in 2009 and have proven that you don’t have to like the same food, movies, wardrobe, or have similar personalities to work successfully together. Music was always their common ground. Their early collaborations began with original pop-rock songs, but organically evolved further into the pop direction, experimenting with beats and soft synths to create the electro-pop sound that has been carving out A Is for Arrows’ place in this industry.
‘Talking in My Sleep’ follows hot on the heels of A is for Arrows’ “Go Slow” single, which explores the evolution of brand new love. Also, the song shows your truest self to another, while simultaneously letting go of your inhibitions to leap into the throes of passion.
