SLEEP PARTY PEOPLE
is the brainchild of Brian Batz, a Danish multi-instrumentalist with a boundless imagination.
Taking as inspiration the work of Boards Of Canada, David Lynch and Erik Satie, Batz found the sound of the old battered piano in his apartment, coupled with a freaky electronic alteration of his recorded voice, created an eerie, hypnotic sound often labeled as Dream Pop.
With his other worldly signature sound in place, this one-man home recording project started to take shape back in 2008, the collection of weird and haunting melodies he created forming the basis for Sleep Party People’s self-titled debut album (2010).
The overall atmosphere he fashioned, one that evokes the disorientating world between being asleep and awake, wasn’t a conscious effort.
The newer more organic approach to the music becomes clear when Batz takes the band on the road. Playing Live Sleep Party People is 5 musicians, which allow Batz to fully explore the sonic depth in the songs. The audience is in for a treat when the band – wearing their iconic rabbit masks – plays a dynamic show with songs ranging from quiet piano-driven to loud cinematic instrumentals.
