Sleepy Age – Sleepy Age EP

On October 12, 2010, in MP3 Download, Reviews, by Dr Hitchcock

Sleepy Age EP - CoverBitter-sweet pop with lashings of rock and a wee bit of groove…

Sleepy Age are one of the best bands in Christchurch at the moment and their latest self-titled EP totally reflects this.

My favourite from this release is ‘Paul Simon’, a song which had Ross from local bar ‘The Dux de Lux’ grooving into the room during a soundcheck one day saying that it sounded like the Happy Mondays. At the time I don’t think Sleepy Age lead man, Josh Burgess, could see this comparison but I think I can.

I reckon Josh is an amazing song writer. His songs have good structure, interesting lyrics and a nice contrast between loud and soft.

Sleepy Age is a 3 piece band and was founded by Josh (ex Bang Bang Eche) who wrote music on his laptop to pass time in planes/vans/bedrooms. On returning to New Zealand Burgess transformed garage band demo’s into indie pop tunes with a full band. Sleepy Age also won RDU 98.5 FM’s 2009 ‘Round Up’ band.

Josh and the band are in the middle of a national tour so if they’re playing near your house be sure to check them out and you can also download the EP for free from their bandcamp page. Tour details and download details below…
