Big Sleep “All of the Pretty Things”

All of the Pretty Things’ is the latest laid back ballad from Dublin’s Big Sleep. The track is inspired by the sounds of JJ Cale, Skinshape, and DOPE LEMON. The third release off **Big Sleep’**s Sophomore EP, ‘All of the Pretty Things’ was recorded, produced and mixed by James Smith (Gypsies on the AutobahnJ Smith) in Hellfire Studios in July 2022. Mastered by Pete Maher.

“All of the Pretty Things’ needed a slower pace than the other tracks on this EP. We wanted to give this one space to breathe, we were focused on stripping it back to its core elements. We all have a deep love of contemplative songs that aren’t in a rush. We admire artists like JJ Cale, Adrianne Lenker, and Bon Iver who do this really well with songs like ‘Magnolia’, ‘Jonathan’ and ‘Bloodbank’. The idea came about just two weeks before we were set to go into the studio. We weren’t planning on including it in the project but as soon as it was finished we all agreed it had to be part of the tracklist. Definitely one of our favourites that we’ve written so far.”
The Dublin-based group partly came together at school and other’s later joined through the city’s live music scene. Blending indie-alternative influences with pop and soul, the Irish-Italian outfit creates soundscapes that land in the intersection somewhere between JJ CaleJamiroqaui, and Joy Division. Summer 2022 saw the quartet release their Debut EP which received international radio play (BBC Radio 6, Amazing Radio, RTÉ 2FM) and featured on Spotify’s ‘Hot New Bands’, ‘All New Rock’ and ‘New Music Friday’ playlists alongside European tour dates across Ireland, Italy and France. Big Sleep also had packed out performances at Sea Sessions and Electric Picnic then finished 2022 with another Irish and UK Tour. The band kicked off 2023 by joining acclaimed indie rocker, Somebody’s Child on their Irish Tour and are set to release a string of singles ahead of their Sophomore EP release.
