Bio

Heavy bands from Adelaide rarely move out of the sleepy suburbs and onto the national stage, but Sleep Talk are changing that with their uniquely precise-yet-frenetic brand of post-hardcore in the form of debut album 'Everything In Colour'.



Having made their first statement with the Growing Pains EP in 2016, Sleep Talk threw themselves into creating a debut album that takes the details of everyday life and elevates them into something eccentric, exciting and artistic. The album is a commentary on the every-day struggle of modern routine, and how we all cope through this confusing and fascinating thing we call life.


Having toured with the likes of Turnstile, Citizen and Turnover, Sleep Talk are used to embedding the catharsis of their songwriting into their performances as a stunning riot of emotion, sound and physicality. The band will announce a headline tour of Australia shortly, and hometown fans can also see the band perform alongside label mates Hellions and Yours Truly at The Gov in Adelaide on May 3.

The first time listening to this song is such a trip. You never know where it's gonna go next. Thankfully every element is executed with complete precision.

Damn this is a brilliant song. It's been a fave for the last 2 weeks of mine. "Can you teach me how to love myself". Love that line and everything in and around this.

enough hooks for the masses and enough fiercer hardcore elements for those fans, it's a weighty mix.
