The indie/pop realm is dominated by psychedelic-tinged acts like Tame Impala and the War on Drugs — but keep an eye out for Sleepwalkers.

On July 19, the Richmond, Va.-based rock/indie band will release their sophomore album, Ages — and today, Rock Cellar is premiering its title track.

Featuring a sound that calls to mind the music of decades long gone — thanks to their use of vocal harmonies and lush orchestration — the group seamlessly blends eras and genres into a style all their own.

Here’s the song “Ages”:

Said the band of the song in a statement:

“Heartbreak has left someone unsure of the future. A voice of an older self speaks to them from a different time … trying to give them hope for the future. Explaining that it may seem like the end of the world … but life will go on. The future is not so bleak, and time can heal the wounds if you let it.”

Sleepwalkers have cut their teeth, so to speak, on the road opening for the likes of the Shins, the Lumineers and more, and they’re going to support the new record with a U.S. headlining run of their own. The dates:
