Born in Manchester UK, Indie Folk outfit Sleep Walking Animals are Tom Glynn-Carney (vocals), Joe Etherington (guitar, vocals), Jack Brett (bass, vocals), Alex Parker (guitar), Nuwan Hugh Perera (keys, vocals) and Bill Caple (drums). Having grown up as friends for years before they formed the band, Sleep Walking Animals are bonded by a deep sense of brotherhood, which penetrates through their music, recording ethic and live shows.
Their indie-folk sound has been likened to the love child of Fleet Foxes and Talking Heads. This pleasurable melee of evocative folk and alternative rock combines choral harmonies with filmic musicality and poetic lyricism. They have sold out venues across the UK and have aired on national TV and radio, most notably on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch and Tom Robinson's Introducing Mixtape.
With plenty of live shows and new music in the pipeline, Sleep Walking Animals are ones to watch.
