Sleep Council aka Richard Allan is a Brighton-based DIY project, with its roots in 60s garage, shoegaze and psychedelia. With new EP Christian Pleasures lined up with mixing from LA-based, ARIA-nominated producer Callum Barter (Courtney Barnett, Kurt Vile) first single ‘Tease’ drops exclusively with XS Noize today!
Richard tells us that “Tease is about being unable to find a sustained belief or good feeling in anything. It’s about finding yourself feeling flat when you don’t want to be or probably shouldn’t be. This makes me restless to seek out excitement.”
Sleep Council’s minimalistic set-up, relying primarily on home recordings is more than the sum of its parts, with expansive synth and string sections combining with the fuzz of guitars to create a wall of sound, Richard’s distinctive vocals tearing through the mix.
