About

Vibrant and dark The Sleeplings - a recording rock trio that plays through imagery and vibes of old childrens books and gothic tales.

You'll be hauled into deep tuned fuzz tones, accompanied by old pianos, and occationally you'll be led astray in bittersweet dream-folk ballads.

It IS a traditional rock act, but with influences from goth-pop, psychedelic-pop and early 1900's impressionism, The Sleeplings may very well take you someplace new.

 

First recordings came out as the highly acclaimed mini-album “..for dare and farewell”. After some years of sleep walking, Jesper regathered the band with Steen Lauridsen and piano player Peter Just.

The single “Dead Horse” was the first child of this new constellation (re-released in album-version late 2016). Thoughout the last two years the trio have been working on material for their first longplay release, which is set to be released February 2017.


And the short story goes:

 

Jesper Kragh on guitars, bass, vocals,

Steen Lauridsen on drums,

Peter Just on pianos, bass, celeste and FX

 

..and different borrowed mucisians on choir, strings, or whatever we need!

By the (danish) Press

Tungt, udspekuleret og drillesygt. De har fundet lige præcis de små virkemidler som gør det originalt og mørkt, måske endda gotisk. The Sleeplings er danmarks bedste bud på vaskeægte traditionel rock, og Underlyd glæder sig til at høre fra dem igen.

Jeg sidder nu og lytter på EP’en "..for dare and farewell" for jeg ved ikke hvilken gang - fordi det er godt lavet, spillet og tænkt.

(Carsten Holm, DR P6)

 

De skramler sig herligt uprætentiøst gennem pladens seks numre, fire af hvilke er nogenlunde så vellykket alternativ/stenet rock, som jeg nogensinde har hørt den.

(Musikmagazinet Geiger)

 

Den 6 numre lange EP er et imponerende afsæt for et ungt band på vej mod nye højder. En appertizer der får mig til at håbe på mere. Og gerne snart.
