"A Chicago 4-piece with a hazy, amorphous, art-rock sound—these guys have been invigorating and confusing listeners for about a year now—and I just can't get enough."

Deep Sleep
Deep Sleep
In 2012, Deep Sleep began as the solo project of Jeremiah Chiu, one of the masterminds behind Chandeliers peers Icy Demons. Since then, Cameron Brand (Chandeliers/Killer Whales) has joined force to solidify the duo. Deep Sleep's combination of analog synthesizers, drum machines, guitars and vocals create a sonic palette reminiscent of Arthur Russell, Cocteau Twins, Enya, Lol Creme and Chic. A brand of suggestive and moderate funk to get the lower parts of your torso into a summertime sway.

Deep Sleep play minimalist electro pulsations with warm vocals that sound as if they're floating over the glaciers of the synths moving beneath.

–Notes and Bolts

The show was a perfect mixture of light and dark for their “sleep-themed” set. The night started with Deep Sleep, a solo project from Jeremiah Chiu, member of Los Angeles-based group Icy Demons and Chicago-based creative studio practice Plural: a warming mixture of synth pop meets indie, reminiscent of Cut Copy. Danceable beats and catchy melodies, analog synth sounds galore, Chiu describes the project as “space-disco-art-pop.” The audience grooved with every song and watched a capturing visual presentation of random videos of ocean life blended with footage of busy highways, space and entrancing visual effects.
