Bio

Since forming in Launceston in 2016, The Sleepyheads have turned heads all over the country with their honest approach to heart-on-sleeve punk and indie rock.

It’s that buzz-worthy style that earned The Sleepyheads a coveted Triple J Unearthed Feature Artist slot, leading to a milestone performance at Triple J’s One Night Stand in St Helens. The band have since gone on to appear at some of Australia’s most-loved festivals, including Falls Festival, Party In the Paddock, Til The Wheels Fall Off and Woolly Mammoth.

Their charismatic and engaging live shows have seen The Sleepyheads sell out multiple headline gigs, and tour nationally three times. Now, with the arrival of their new single ‘Nihilist’ in 2021, The Sleepyheads are hitting the road to support SEMANTICS on their national tour. With more new music to come and their charming brand of indie rock at the ready, The Sleepyheads are equipped to continue captivating audiences, new and old, every step of the way.

Good, honest and very local songwriting. When Pat and Connor Brooker put their voices together on a track it's like opening the door to the front bar and seeing two mates already waiting for you.

the two years away immediately dissolve when you come back sounding this crisp and hooky. the sleepyheads (with some help from connor brooker) are sounding as good as ever on this new one!
