Silence is golden – at least that is what indie band Vulfpeck thought. The band uploaded their new “album” Sleepify to Spotify and encouraged fans to stream it overnight. The catch? The album was completely silent. The band pulled a sly move on the popular streaming platform and at approximately $.007 earned per song play, the band earned a cool $20,000 after a months time. Check out the bands video proposal here which details that the money generated will be used toward playing free shows. Tell us Infectious readers – is this sneaky or smart?
