Sleepy is a downtempo electronic music duo from Chicago, Illinois founded in the winter of 2015 by Chicago area musician Chris Hess. The group continues to gain the attention of music lovers with a sound that is well developed right out of the gate. Their work is hugely informed by the U.K. garage movement and jungle all the while seamlessly flirting with more ambient soundscapes and golden-era hip-hop rhythms.
The secretive duo are allegedly long-time collaborators with two decades of experience with Chicago’s indie rock scene. Veterans sure, but certainly not slouches and you can hear this in Sleepy’s originals and remix work. Sleepy employ homemade, digital and analog instruments into the fabric of their music.
Sleepy released their debut single “We All Believe Together Now” b/w “Dancing Peacock Hangover” as a digital single for Garden house on January 19th, 2016. A debut E.P. is expected to arrive in the summer of 2017. We look forward to hearing many more fantastic tracks from this promising group.
