About: Crafting their own unique brand of colossal, euphoric Alternative Rock, Newcastle-based four-piece SLEEPTAPE are one of the most exciting new exports emerging from the city’s thriving music scene. The band display their expansive & intense wall of sound in full definition, pulling no punches. Their tracks soar on swirling reverb laden guitars and driving, fist pumping drum hooks, continuously blooming.

What Hidden Herd say: Exploding through speakers with an affirmative grace, SLEEPTAPE juxtapose their modest track title by delivering their full sound with a comprehensive immediacy. This one captures, and it captures quick.
