In the span of less than two years, songstress/poet Meghan Tartamella and twin brothers Michael and Joseph Pepe -aka – SLEEPLUST – has become one of Los Angeles’s most exciting and sought after indie electronic pop outfits.
The trio released their debut self-titled EP in November to critical acclaim and commercial success. Recorded in their hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, the five track release is an homage to the band’s roots, hometown and the major transition periods in life we can all relate to. “The EP really speaks to those shifts in emotions, priorities and relationships. It’s about coming more into ourselves and feeling safe in who/where that is.” Tartamella says wistfully.
Their latest single My Place is the first song written and recorded in the band’s new home of Los Angeles. The three-and-a-half minute production displays the band’s unique trademark, which combines brooding electronics, wandering synths and heavy bass, all brought together by Tartamella’s sultry yet focused melodies.
This Spring, SLEEPLUST’s music will be featured on major cable networks such as MTV, VH1, E! and Oxygen. The band is also busy headlining select West Coast tour dates and playing festivals this summer.
