The Sleeps

The Sleeps are the latest edition to the Girlfriend Records stable. GFR are a mark of good taste in 80’s influenced electronic music and their newest members fill the Indie-Electro slot their line up.

This Cleveland based trio mix up retro sounding ElectroPop with 80’s rock riffs and catchy songwriting to create a sound that will defiantly have them standing out from the Indie-Electro crowd. Unlike many of their contemporaries, The Sleeps’ guitar work never overpowers the electronic, more the two blend together quite seamlessly with riffs and synth lines weaving in and out of one another giving the tracks a certain drive that has been missing in music since the heyday of big 80’s synth-rock movie themes. Their début for Girlfriend, ‘The Fuse’ is a perfect example of their work, a guitar and Electro mash up that occasionally veers into New York style Indie-Electro, occasionally veers into Dreamwave territory and occasionally sounds like early 90’s British Indie but makes a unique and infectious whole.
