Biography

Sleepmakeswaves (typeset as sleepmakeswaves) are an Australian band who formed in Sydney, New South Wales in December 2006.

The group is currently composed of guitarist Jonathan Khor, guitarist Otto Wicks-green, drummer Tim Adderley and bassist Alex Wilson. To date they have released one extended play (2008’s In Today Already Walks Tomorrow) and one full length studio album (2011’s …and so we destroyed everything), as well as a split EP with Perth band Tangled Thoughts of Leaving. The band have reached notable success internationally for their energetic live performances and modern approach to post rock. They are currently released through Australian independent record label Bird’s Robe Records, which is distributed through MGM in Australia and independently worldwide. In 2013, UK label Monotreme Records licensed their album for an international release across the UK, Europe and North America.

The band formed when Alex Wilson and Tom Binetter responded to a Myspace post by Jonathan Khor, looking to start a new post rock project. Khor had previously collaborated with Jeremy Davidson (aka Johnny Wishbone of the Snowdroppers) and Dom Alessio (of Triple J’s Home and Hosed), before continuing to compose music under the name sleepmakeswaves (which was originally coined by Alessio). Binetter recruited drummer William Smith and the band recorded a self-titled demo, which was released free online through the Lost Children net label.

In 2008 the band released their debut EP, “In Today, Already Walks Tomorrow” featuring 6 tracks. The success of the EP proved the catalyst for the band’s international fan base, aiding this, one fan included the track one day you will teach me to let go of my fears on a Twilight movie fan video on YouTube.
