Sleep Thieves play moody and hypnotic electronic music, described as ‘disco-noir’ (The Irish Times). They have built a loyal live following throughout Ireland for their vital and atmospheric performances. A trio with a simply captivating sound, Sleep Thieves have emerged as one of the Irish music scene’s most promising acts with the album You Want The Night
Sleep Thieves, are Sorcha Brennan (vocals, synths), Wayne Fahy (Vocals, synths, bass, programming), and Keith Byrne (synths, guitar, bass, programming). The Dublin-dwelling trio met through Twitter where they bonded over film soundtracks and vintage synths. This musical friendship was solidified in the recording of their self-released EP, ‘Islands’ in 2012, which garnered accolades from the press. Their follow up full length album, ‘You Want the Night’, was released on June 17th via Minty Fresh Records US), who have previously launched The Cardigans and Veruca Salt to stardom. If Kate Bush had joined Enya and Bat for Lashes to pen a soundtrack for Jane Eyre this album could be it. Haunting, dreamy and cinematic, it opens up and rolls in like a storm over the moors, calling out to a forgotten love, enticing and caressing the listener.
“Dublin-based Sleep Thieves will definitely entice you to stay up late, whether to dance or drift off in a daydream, but you won’t hold that against them.” – The Guardian
