Sleep Thieves, are Sorcha Brennan (vocals, synths), Wayne Fahy (Vocals, synths, bass, programming), and Keith Byrne (synths, guitar, bass, programming). The Dublin-dwelling trio met through Twitter where they bonded over film soundtracks and vintage synths. This musical friendship was solidified in the recording of their self-released EP, Islands in 2012, which garnered accolades from the press. Their full length album, You Want the Night, was released in 2014 (via Minty Fresh Records US). Their music is haunting, dreamy and cinematic, it opens up and rolls in like a storm, enticing and caressing the listener.
Recently Sleep Thieves have played Electric Picnic, Culture Collide in San Francisco and LA, the FMC tour around Ireland, Forbidden Fruit, Body and Soul, CMJ Music Marathon New York, and in London, Paris and Italy.
With Millions of plays and almost 100,000 unique listeners per month on Spotify, the band has gained a great listener ship worldwide.
“Dublin’s Sleep Thieves skate along feathery synths and breathy female vocals. Their new single City of Hearts kinda sounds like what might happen if Johnny Jewel was producing Phantogram”
Under the Radar Magazine
“Dublin-based Sleep Thieves will definitely entice you to stay up late, whether to dance or drift off in a daydream, but you won’t hold that against them”
