About this album

With only nine songs on We Were Drifting On A Sad Song there’s little space for filler. Gazing At The Moon and the title track explode with synths primed for a momentous chorus and mass sing-alongs. Well it would, if it wasn’t for the cubist voice of Batz, who confines his vocals to leave a pitch-bent euphoric analogue synth riff in its place.

The keystone to Sleep Party People is that given any moment, each song could mutate and evolve into another depending on Batz’s mood. Whilst there is a vast scope between styles from dreamy-pop to tub-thumping electro, underneath all the clever sounds and expressionism is an organic could-end-anywhere sense of freedom that pulls the listener in every direction, yet maintains its identity throughout. There is a lot to admire about the myriad of uncertainty and unpredictability of We Were Drifting On A Sad Song.
