Press Release:

Formed in early 2010, Sleep ∞ Over is the dreamy, eternal sounds of singular Austin artist, Stefanie Franciotti.

After becoming known for her poignant melodies and classic pop song structures Sleep ∞ Over quickly gained the attention of the esteemed Night People label. Whilst the first EP was released on cassette during a flood of hazy lo-fi releases, Sleep ∞ Over’s melodically-driven aesthetic rose to the top of the saturated genre. Before long releasing an expansive and lush sounding group of songs on 7” for Forest Family records which sold out in less than a week.

Sleep ∞ Over delve down under to showcase and build upon the intense infatuation that listeners of a wide range of styles seem to have with the band’s fragile yet powerful energy.
