Taken from their debut ‘Oh Isn’t It Strange’ EP ( out 21 April on Funnel Music).
The track starts off a little Nirvana, than morphs into something a little Inspiral Carpets – esque. The band were raised on Britpop, but inspired by the grunge revival and sound a little alt-rock, in a flamboyant Perry Farrell-like way.
Sleeptalking are a young Bristol 5-piece, raised on the guitar sound of the Brit-pop era, inspired by the current grunge revival (citing contemporaries such as Kagoule and Tigerclub as influences), but purveyors of something altogether more colourful and sassy. Sleeptalking mix psych with a twisted energy and guitar riffs reminiscent of alt-rock bands such as Jane’s Addiction, a comparison cemented further by the theatrical vocal flourishes of charismatic frontman Tom Nosek.
