Sleep Party People unveil new video for ‘Chin’

April 24, 2012

Danish dream gazers Sleep Party People are pleased to unveil their new video for ‘Chin’. Directed by danish video artists obscura.dk. The video is a kaleidoscopic journey through space and time with an alluring ballerina (Caroline Baldwin) as the host. The track comes from their recently released ‘We were drifting on a sad song’. Which is available on Brine and Barnacles Records in the US or Blood and Biscuits in the UK.

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, and some classic movie soundtracks, 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.
The overall atmosphere he fashioned, one that evokes the disorientating world between being asleep and awake, wasn’t a conscious effort.

Adding a further four musicians to the line up following the release of the debut, self-titled album, the quintet – hidden behind rabbit masks – served up an inspired cocktail of explosive shoegaze and electronic dream pop on their first world-wide tour.
Back home in Denmark electronic pioneer Trentemøller showed his approval by offering SPP a slot on his sold out tour – followed by The Antlers and Efterklang pledging allegiance asking SPP to join them as support on their Scandinavian outings. Appearances at Roskilde, By:larm, Eurosonic along with an extensive European tour and a youtube video that clocked almost half a million views further cemented Sleep Party People’s burgeoning reputation.

Eighteen months on and SPP are prepping to unleash their second album on which they take the music further into the mysterious but rejuvenating sound of strange voices, angelic melodies and powerful soundscapes.
