“Sleep Walking Animals create the perfect platform for the richly harmonic imploring vocals that reach out with enough finesse to reassure you that they have exactly what it takes to be the next big name in indie.”

About

Born in Manchester UK, alt-folk-rock outfit, Sleep Walking Animals showcase the talents of Tom Glynn-Carney (vocals), Joe Etherington (guitar, vocals), Jack Brett (bass, vocals), Alex Harford (guitar), Nuwan Hugh Perera (keys, vocals) and Bill Caple (drums). Having grown up as friends for years before they formed the band, SWA are bonded by a deep sense of brotherhood, which penetrates through their music, recording ethic, and live shows in an almost punkish demeanour.

 

They cross swords with the likes of Fleet Foxes, Talking Heads and Fleetwood Mac, in a melee of evocative folk and progressive rock. Their lyrics echo a bygone era yet are moulded by the zeitgeist and are underscored by almost filmic compositions.

With an affinity for folklore, mythology and choral music, they embody a sound combining echos of the classical with a warm, youthful yearning. Driven by complex rhythms, harmony rich vocals and soaring guitars reminiscent of a 70’s heyday, SWA write with a knack for anthemic baroque rock.

 

Having been featured on Tom Robinsons BBC Radio 6 Introducing Mixtape and channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, sold out venues in both London and Manchester and toured nationally, SWA are definitely ones to watch.

Once was my teacher of joy dividing song Of wringing and floating in churches long gone Find me the strength and the music romance Give me the strength and the music to dance Dance Laura dance Dance Laura dance The scars are fading Every day You feel a little More like yourself The scars are fading Every day you climb a little Higher yourself Dancer of mine hold on to my hand O how I'll soar with you over this land Something much greater burns into this seal Something so great grants ghosts to your heal Hold my gaze as our shadows take turns In spinning the night away o how I yearn Give me the strength and the spirit romance Give me the strength and the spirit to dance Dance Laura dance Dance Laura dance The scars are fading Every day You feel a little More like yourself The scars are fading Every day You climb a little Higher yourself Nine millimetre monster Crept into the head As you slept through the haunting of those nearly dead You fought with a bravery lost unto me So teach me to dance again til I can't sing Dance Laura dance (continue till end) Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/sleepwalkinganimals/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/sleepwalkinganimalsband Twitter - https://twitter.com/swalkinganimals Official site - https://www.sleepwalkinganimals.com Check us out on Spotify - https://open.spotify.com/artist/6nwL3eOhGDjkslB5WovL60 #sleepwalkinganimals #dancelauradance
