Sleep Party People is Danish multi-instrumentalist Brian Batz, who makes otherworldly post-rock under the stage alias. Based in Copenhagen, Batz and his live backing band are known for wearing rabbit masks in performance and in publicity photos, reinforcing his music's somewhat surreal aesthetic. The project's self-titled debut was issued by MBO: The Music Business Organisation in 2010. He followed it in 2012 with We Were Drifting on a Sad Song via MBO and Blood & Biscuits. For his third album, Batz worked with outside producers for the first time, enlisting Jeff Saltzman (The Killers, Blondie) and Mikael Johnston (Mephisto Odyssey). Titled Floating, it arrived in 2014, also on MBO and Blood & Biscuits. Sleep Party People's debut for Joyful Noise Recordings, Lingering, was released in 2017 and featured collaborations with singer/songwriter Beth Hirsch and the Antlers' Peter Silberman, among others.
