Cheylene, Ryan and Aimee met at a Belfast house party spelling out naughty words on a fridge-magnet-crossword. Post hangovers, they decided to make music together and Beauty Sleep was born. It was in their home studio they really honed in their sound, creating a synthy, guitar-riff and pop-hook haven that Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix and Chvrches fans will fall in love with. Beauty Sleep’s first two singles ‘The Dark,’ and ‘Living Right’ have gained over 110,00 plays on Spotify, 80,000 plays on Soundcloud, support from BBC Radio One, 98FM, TXFM, Amazing Radio and had both singles named track of the day on BBC Radio Ulsters Across The Line. Beauty Sleep have been featured in The Irish Times, Indie Shuffle, Clash Magazine and many other blogs based as far as New York and Tokyo and had ‘The Dark’ charting at number 11 on Hype Machine’s no remixes chart for a week. Beauty Sleep has spent their first year touring around Ireland, playing festivals such as Electric Picnic, Other Voices & Output Festival, supporting All Tvvins, Silences & Orchid Collective as well as opening for Pleasure Beach on their Irish Tour. Filled with inspiration Beauty Sleep have been spending a lot of time in the studio recording their debut EP, which will be released May 2017. You can hear Beauty Sleep’s first two singles ‘The Dark’ and ‘Living Right’ on Spotify, Apple Music & Soundcloud now.
“Sighing harmonies, gorgeous psych-speckled guitar lines, the band have all the ingredients of a cult property.”
“Carved out of ambitious, and fully realised, production and infectious hook-driven songwriting, Beauty Sleep sound perfectly formed.” (The Last Mixed Tape)
“The Beauty Sleep live display is a rip-roaring, hip swinging experience that puts the band more in the indie dance camp than anything else. Trading vocals as well as guitars and synths, they are infectious in their exuberance and hugely impressive in the song department.” (State Magazine)
