Sleepmakeswaves from Australia performed at dunk!festival2012 with 65daysofstatic headlining that day. After that they toured Australia and Europe together. We went to see them in De Handelsbeurs in Ghent and had a nice chat with both of them. You could already watch the interview with 65daysofstatic here.
"We wanna be a live band that people remember. (...) Writing music can be hard, the business aspect of it can be really difficult; but a good live show is infinitely rewarding, for us and for the audience."
The guys are talking about the impressive instrumental rock scene in Australia and how it developed over the last few years. Sleepmakeswaves is "one of the prominent voices in that emerging scene". Playing a live show to remember is what they do in times where so much (great) music is being released. They believe it's all about creating a moment, an experience to remember. And that is exactly what they did at dunk!festival2012 and will do again on the 10th edition of dunk!festival with Ufomammut co-headlining the second festival day (April, 19th, 2014).
Live footage is recorded at dunk!festival2012.
The show with 65daysofstatic and Sleepmakeswaves at De Handelsbeurs was organized by Democrazy.
