Sleep Party People - Floating (2014)

Sleep Party People has confirmed details for a new album. The new record ’Floating’, will be released on June 2nd through Blood & Biscuits (part of the Pink Mist collective of DIY labels). 

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, 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. 

In February 2013, armed with one rough sketch of a track on his laptop and a head full of ideas, Batz travelled to San Francisco to work with Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, Morrisey & Blondie) and Mikael Johnston (The Sounds, Jane's Addiction). One month later, he returned to Copenhagen with the nearly-completed third album, ‘Floating’, on his hard drive. 

For the most part casting aside the eerie murmuring vocals that have thus far been a Sleep Party People trademark, ‘Floating’ sees Batz simplify his work, cutting down on the number of layers and effects, taking inspiration from the less complicated recordings of “the good old days” and limiting himself to 24 tracks on each song. The result is a more focussed, melody driven record that channels the deliriously macabre moods SPP’s music conjures and molds them into some of his most concise, direct and powerful work to date.
