Since forming in a Sydney share house in 2014, Sleepy have quickly made a name for themselves as ones to watch in both the Australian and international music scene. Their melodic brand of indie guitar pop is close to the antithesis of their name, it’s energetic and infectious, leaving you feeling revitalised.
After the release of two EP’s, a 7” and a number of singles, this year has seen the band work with producer/engineer Tim Carr (Mere Women, Julia Stone, Totally Unicorn) to craft their long-awaited debut album New Shanghai Night. Today, we’re premiering the first single off the album, Apologise.
Sydney slacker-pop trio Sleepy unveil their deeply addictive new single Apologise, the first track off their long-awaited debut album New Shanghai Night.
Apologise is a vibrant, catchy tune that’s electrifying and full of life. Like something straight out of the 10 Things I Hate About You soundtrack, it’s nostalgic slacker pop reminiscent of ’90s indie that makes you want to dance around your bedroom and sing into your hairbrush.
The track traverses through emotions that arise when trying to navigate different relationships, highlighting the importance of compromise in the memorable chorus “baby I’ll apologise a hundred times, I was wrong and you were right.” Apologise feels carefree and warm, with ringing guitars, lush harmonies, and contagious melodies, it’s bright, vibrant pop that’s sure to stick in your head for weeks.
