Single released 19/09/2010
Very much at the forefront of an era that saw indie and disco join hands and take to the dance floor, Lo-Fi-Fnk hit the zeitgeist with their debut album BoyLife – a life affirming confection of killer melodies, shonky beats and clever lyrics.
In an era when electro is closely tied to fashion Lo-Fi-Fnk's carefree delivery is a welcome antithesis. It takes the parallel rise of Balearic-feeling dance as a worthy alternative to the electro blog-house aesthetic and turns it into well-constructed pop. Whatever you call it, there's an abundance of gleaming surfaces too rapturously enticing to entertain qualms about superficiality, making Sleepless both en vogue and timeless.
