History

Early Years, Management and Twin Galaxies (2010-2017)

Delta Sleep emerged from a band called Sávlön[1], featuring bass player Maria Sullivan and drummer Adam Brogan beside Yüceil and Hodgson. They released a self-titled EP in 2010, followed by Management in 2013.[2] Shortly after the release of Management, Sullivan and Brogan left the band to start a family and focus on other musical projects, respectively. They were replaced by Dave Jackson and Blake Hodgson, both friends of the band.[3] Delta Sleep released their first full-length album Twin Galaxies in January 2015.[2]

Ghost City, Younger Years and Soft Sounds (2018-present)

Their second full-length album, Ghost City, was released in August 2018 to critical acclaim.[4][5] Ghost City was promoted with tours in Europe,[6] North America[7] and East Asia.[8] During touring for Ghost City, Delta Sleep released their EP Younger Years as a surprise in September 2019.[9] Following cancelled tour dates due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Delta Sleep gradually released their compilation album Soft Sounds between May and July 2020.[10] Soft Sounds consists of 9 stripped-down and acoustic live performances that were recorded during touring in France, Japan, the United States and Turkey as well as the new song A Casa.[2]

Musical style

Both Twin Galaxies and Ghost City are concept albums that follow a protagonist overcoming hardship. Twin Galaxies follows a man whose life was uprooted by a flood on his way to find new hope. In Ghost City, a woman escapes from a dystopian, oppressive city to find a better life more in connection with nature. Delta Sleep’s musical style has been described as math rock and indie rock.[4][11] Many songs feature odd time signatures and are structured unconventionally.
