Today’s new music spotlight is on Sleep Eaters.
Line-up: Glenn Wild (vocals/guitar), Sean Wild (drums), William Atkins (guitar/vocals), Danny Herman (bass) and Declan Shields-Appleton (lap steel guitar).
About: Sleep Eaters are a five-piece country garage experience from South London who released their debut EP, ‘Holy Days’, on 9th August 2019 via PNKSLM. Formed in January 2018, the band have already played a host of huge shows supporting the likes of Mellah, Crows, The Murder Capital, L.A. Witch and Sugar Candy Mountain to name a few. The band have recently completed a UK tour supporting Drahla and will be touring with Flamingods in October 2019.
What Hidden Herd say: Fusing Nashville-gazing honky-tonk with Nuggets-era garage psychedelia, Sleep Eaters make sprawling open-road songs to savour. Four-tune EP ‘Holy Days’ is their crowning achievement thus far – cruise down each one of its evocative sonic highways below.
