The Local presents THE SLEEPING YEARS @ The Slaughtered Lamb on the 9th July (w/ Rue Royale and Lucy Langlas)
The Sleeping Years' debut album 'We're becoming islands one by one' was released in 2008, taking the band touring across France, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and the UK, including dates supporting Bowerbirds, Damien Jurado, Scout Niblett and Okkervil River. They have recently featured on Gideon Coe's show on 6Music, BBC Radio 1, the Guardian, Rolling Stone magazine and Word Magazine.
The Sleeping Years will be playing this show as a full band with some friends joining them on trumpet and French horn on some new songs.
Drowned in Sound: 'a record that only Bon Iver's ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ has really rivalled in recent months. 'We're Becoming Islands One By One' could be remembered as one of 2008's best of its kind in years to come'. 8/10'
BBC: 'beautifully understated... one of Grundle's great strengths is his lyrics'
The Word magazine: 'Grundle is emerging as one of our great off-centre songwriters'
Rock n Reel: 'An extraordinary introduction to a hugely talented artist... exquisite'
