A masterclass in woozy, nocturnal electro-pop, You Want The Night by Dublin three-piece Sleep Thieves is easily one of our favourite debut albums by an Irish band in… well, forever. A year on from its release, the Sorcha Brennan-fronted band have unveiled the video for its title (and arguably best track) ‘You Want The Night’ – and what a distance director Mike P. Nelson has gone to wonderfully, rather cinematically capture the song’s dark, marauding tangents.
Taken from the band’s highly-anticipated second studio album, You Want The Night, Dublin electro-pop three-piece Sleep Thieves have really delivered on the release’s title track. With Sorcha Brennan’s entrancing vocals taking centre-stage, Keith Byrne and Wayne Fahy weave a spectral, nocturnal web around the song’s forward-moving rhythms. Sitting side-to-side with the band’s previous single, ‘City of Hearts’, it makes for extremely encouraging stuff. You Want The Night will be released via Minty Fresh records on June 17.
