Inspired & the Sleep is ready to share their first single of the new year.

The Los Angeles-based pop outfit made up of songwriter-producer Max Greenhalgh and multi-instrumentalist Bryce Outcault on Tuesday released their impressive new single "Transcend," which is premiering today on Variance. And despite it's glossy pop sound, it's lyrically more poignant and bittersweet.

"'Transcend' is a song based around infatuation and the toxic situations that can surround it," they explain. "It's about wanting the best for someone who doesn't want the best for themselves."

The band, which has previously shared the stage with the likes of Moon Taxi and Colony House, is preparing to release their self-titled album, which will arrive on March 13. And this new track is a preview of the upcoming record.
