“Bewitching, beguiling, dark-hearted…infectious, substantial noir-disco.. electropop” –Irish Times

“..think wave-y-gothic vocals (Austra/Fever Ray/The Golden Filter) floating in and out from the dark to the bright side and back!”  – Deer De BoisSleep Thieves

Sleep Thieves release their second single on February 25th via Minty Fresh.. “City Of Hearts” features haunting, dreamy, cinematic vocals backed by a pulsing synth beat, kicking off the countdown to their upcoming album You Want The Night due this Spring.  Solar Bear’s Rian Trench mixed the track. 

You Want The Night will be the band’s first album, following up their Islands EP from 2012, and their single “Sparks” from 2013.

The Dublin-dwelling trio comprised of Sorcha Brennan (vocals, synths), Wayne Fahy (Vocals, synths, bass, programming), and Keith Byrne (synths, guitar, bass, programming) met through Twitter where they bonded over film soundtracks and vintage synths. 

The band is currently touring and working on the video to “City Of Hearts”. Sleep Thieves will definitely entice you to stay up late, whether to dance or drift off in a daydream, but don’t hold that against them.
