Brian Batz' Sleep Party People will return this May with a new album called Floating. You can stream 'In Another World', the record's spooky, plodding, alt-rocker with a hair raising string section right now below.
Sleep Party People was formed in 2008 as a project of Brian Batz, influenced by artists like Boards Of Canada, David Lynch and Erik Satie, starting a unique proposal of the Danish music scene. Since its beginning, the group has been characterized by wearing rabbit masks in their photoshoots and live performances.
Quickly gaining a great acceptance, the group was featured in the Soundvenue, the most prestigious magazine in the Danish music scene. After this, the record label Neh-Owh Records chose two of their songs to be featured in a compilation EP.
With this success, the group was featured in Dutch and British magazines. Their first album was reviewed favorably: it was called “one of the strangest and most beautiful released in a long, long time”, and “a hazy, dreamy and wondrous debut album” by two of the largest newspapers in Denmark.
Floating is out May 30th in Asia and Scandinavia, and June 2nd everywhere else on Blood & Biscuits. See the tracklist below.
