FEATURE: The Enduring Romanticism Of Sleeping With Sirens “If I’m James Dean, You’re Audrey Hepburn”

Eleven years after its debut, Sleeping With Sirens’ first hit remains a perfect example of young love’s ability to make us believe in the impossible. The universe blessed Sleeping With Sirens with the gift of perfect timing.
