Sleepkit is a band who can genuinely be described as mind-expanding; from the very nucleus of their songwriting to the beautiful, texturally-ornamented arrangements, they manage to imbue each aspect of their music a sly veneer of otherness. The band’s core members, Ryan Bourne on bass and vocals and Marie Sulkowlski on keys and vocals, have been continually refining their brand of psych-pop, culminating in an amalgam of dance, disco, prog, 60s breaks, both new and no-wave, kraut and sunshine pop, knitted together with baroque harmonies, driving pulse jams and technicolor noise. The duo actualized this vision on their debut LP Champion Weekend, recorded and produced by Scott Munro (Preoccupations), and with the recent addition of Eric Hamelin (Ghostkeeper) on drums and Joleen Toner (The Slabs) on synth & vocals.
