Press Release:

Sleepy Age is a 3 piece band from Christchurch New Zealand. Founded by Josh Burgess (ex Bang Bang Eche) who wrote music on his lap top to pass time in planes/vans/bedrooms. On returning to New Zealand Burgess transformed garage band demo’s into indie pop tunes with a full band, Sleepy Age was awoken. Sleepy Age entered and won 2009’s RDU Round Up competition at the tender age of 5 weeks old.

Since this time Sleepy Age have been up and down New Zealand numerous times playing with great local and international bands including The Cribs (UK), Grant Hart (Husker Du) So So Modern, Street Chant as well as playing at Sounday 2010 and Chartfest 2010 along side with Die! Die! Die!, The Verlaine’s and The Handsome Family (US).

October see’s Sleepy Age finally release an EP. Digitally for free on their band camp and also physically on 7inch Vinyl available on their EP release tour in the same month. The EP it’s self echo’s the bands musical influences that range from Die! Die! Die! to Randy Newman. Each song is different and I mean that. It might be a good thing it might be and awful thing. You tell me.
