Formed in Charlotte, North Carolina and consists of songstress/poet Meghan Tartamella and twin brothers Michael and Joseph Pepe. SLEEPLUST’s unique sound combines brooding electronics, wandering synths and heavy beats all brought together by Tartamella’s sultry yet focused melodies.
In a matter of two years SLEEPLUST are becoming one of LA’s most sought after indie electro pop outfits.
SLEEPLUST 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.
Tartamella explains the EP as “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.”
More recently and arguably their strongest work to date SLEEPLUST return with their new single ‘My Place’ the first song written and recorded in the band’s new home of Los Angeles.
‘My Place’ is a sultry electronic track that is a true delight on the ears, Tartamella’s vocals truly shine through.
