Sleep-ins, The, Songs About Girls & Outer Space

The Sleep-ins have created a space age travelogue of indie rock, soaring with guitars, analogue synths and crafted performances that serve as the vehicle for a singularly intriguing journey. The debut album from the Sleep-ins, Songs About Girls & Outer Space is a showcase of innovative songwriting that surreptitiously offers a satisfying complexity wrapped in tasty hooks and lyrical gems. The album is a heady and imaginative story, told with songs such as "Tonya, Extraplanetary Spaceship Girl," and "Chrome Skull Cap & Matching Codpiece". The album was recorded in Australia and America, using the best of modern and vintage technology. The Sleep-ins' line-up is also an international space station of sorts, having members from Australia, UK and USA. The band, which formed in Sydney, is now based in Asheville, North Carolina.
