Produktinformationen "Sleep Kit - II"
Big Scary Monsters (La Dispute, Gnarwolves, Minus The Bear) freut sich jetzt, das Debut-Album zu veröffentlichen.

SLEEP KIT ist eine Co-op von Freunden aus Aachen und Maastricht. Alle Mitglieder der Band kommen aus der DIY-Punkszene und spielten zuvor in anderen Bands. Nachdem sie einige Shows gespielt hatten und Acts wie DIE DIE DIE oder CASPIAN supporteten, nahmen sie ihre erste EP auf, welche sie selbst als Tape veröffentlichten.



Sleep Kit is a three piece band from Maastricht (NL) and Cologne (GER) that formed in 2012 directly after all three members moved up to roughly the same area. They started rehearsing in a squatted war bunker that is now a social centre. Shortly after that they recorded their first self-titled EP which was mixed by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden Studio in San Fransisco. The followup to their EP, a brand new full length record entitled 'II' was written over the course of six months in 2014 and 2015. The album is warm, melancholic, instinctively written, energetic, heavy, and full of surprises. Compared to their debut EP, their songwriting skills grew like a giant beanstalk, and they really put a lot of effort into creating a good, distinctive sound. Recorded under very mysterious circumstances and again, mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden Studio in San Fransisco. The cover art was again made by one of their favourite comic artists, Nick Drnaso. Their influences range from noise rock icons Sonic Youth to heavy, slow paced sludge. From gruffy punk like Jawbreaker to weird indie rock like early Modest Mouse or even the midwestern sad songs of Songs: Ohia … but honestly, Sleep Kit doesn't sound anything like the bands mentioned above. Their songwriting approach is hardly conceptual: it's purely organic, defined by different personalities and tastes.



Eine aggressive Mischung aus Indie beeinflussten Punk-Rock der an 90er Releases von Sub Pop, Merge, Touch & Go und K Records erinnert, 90er Emo und Hardcore wie man ihn auf Labels wie Ebullition, Gravity, usw. findet.
