ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"There's a real 'classic songmanship' to the songs. Like Lennon McCartney via the Finn brothers I guess, but the whole thing also seems tinted with a bit of 80s / early 90s summery pop vibe, really subtly though like not overtly intentional. Like The Sundays or Suedehead era Morrissey. It's real spacious and light and summery. Like 'Tusk' if it was recorded one arvo on Henley Beach. Similarly with Sixty Six – even though its a bit of a Revolver pastiche it still sounds like Revolver if The Fabs had recorded it on a drive to the fish and chip shop in West Beach or something. And I guess there's a real earnest 'Australian romanticism' in that too like Go Betweens on 16 Lovers Lane." Kieran Wallis

"I listened to the Long Service Ep. I did enjoy the tracks! To me they had a very Australian feel.
So by that, It felt like a mix of Something for Kate, Crowded House and a US band called The Shins" Heath Solo

“the love child of The Stone Roses, Simon & Garfunkel and REM” James Meston

"I have always thought you guys had that jangle pop feel to your music that reminded me of a number of bands, the most obvious being early era REM. The shades of The Go-Betweens are in there too. Maybe even elements of The Church on a bright and shiny day. There is a definate 'up' feeling to the music of Sleepless, a positivity and sense of fun. Jangly, spangly guitars...there's that word again: jangle. That's it. Without ceremony, I crown you Adelaide's exponents of JANGLE POP" Matt Reiner
