Flush with golden vocal harmonies, dazzling synths and earworm hooks, Be Kind is a huge step in Beauty Sleep’s blossoming career.
Listen to ‘The Dark’ – BELOW:
Beauty Sleep’s music is born of the friendship its three members share. The Belfast natives met first by chance at a mutual friend’s party. While chatting, Cheylene, Ryan and Aimee discovered a powerful shared creative bond. Overcome with the rush of inspiration only the prospect of a new project instills, the group decided to seize the moment and focus their energy into forming a new band. Enter the lush dream-pop Beauty Sleep makes today.
Their strong releases have been bolstered by the band’s high energy live performances, which the group view as another avenue for a communal celebration of music and dance. Apart from regular gigs in their native Belfast, Beauty Sleep have recently graced stages at Electric Picnic, Other Voices, The Great Escape and supported the likes of All Tvvinsand Pleasure Beach.
With the endless possibilities of the new year at hand Beauty Sleep have decided to release their long-awaited debut LP ‘Be Kind’ on May 17th. The album pays homage to the tracks which have come before, opening with their debut single ‘The Dark’, while looking forward with fresh and vibrant sounds for the bands to explore.
Beauty Sleep has come a long way from the first G&T they shared together, but that same sense of wonder and discovery remains at the core of the band’s sound.
