Sleep Thieves – Irish Band of the Week
With summer in full swing, what would we do without bands that make you feel all warm inside? One such band with their sights set on bigger and better things, Sleep Thieves are poised to take the Irish music scene by storm.
The Electro-pop trio have just released their hotly awaited debut album ‘You Want The Night’ which contains the wonderful title track and the current single ‘City of Hearts’. 2 years in the making, after their successful intro EP ‘Islands’, ‘You Want The Night’, breathes a sigh of relief into the Irish music scene, bringing fresh new sounds to the ears of many.
Recorded at their home studio by the band (Sorcha Brennan, Keith Byrne and Wayne Fahy), mixed by Rian Trench (Solar Bears) and released on Minty Fresh Records, the album is sure to raise some attention.
It’s a big month for the Dublin band having just played The Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast and YouBloom festival in Dublin, and with some big gigs to come in two of Ireland’s most synonymous venues, Galway’s Roisín Dubh on Thursday 19th June, and Whelan’s of Dublin on Saturday June 21st.
Listen to their single ‘City of Hearts’ below.
