San Francisco’s Sleepy Sun plays heavy, melodic psych-rock that’s been described as everything from “drony acid rock” to “sludgy ’70s stoner thunder.” They’ve released three LPs & have toured with acts like Arctic Monkeys & the Black Angels.
Sleepy Sun – 11/5 @ Stage AE, indoor stage (w/ City and Colour)
After releasing their new 7″ last week via Dine Alone Records, San Francisco’s Sleepy Sun has now shared the release’s second track, “The Lane.” The melodic, psych-tinged song accompanies the heavier, darker “11:32” to complete a two-track release that captures the diversity of the quintet’s sound and experimental nature of their songwriting. You can stream “The Lane” where it premiered with The Bay Bridged or via Soundcloud, and feel free to post & share!
The result of six years, three LPs, and countless tours worth of exploration and growth, Sleepy Sun’s new 7″ represents an evolved version of the band: one that has torn down walls and built up confidence. It acts as a teaser to their upcoming fourth LP, which will be released via Dine Alone Records early next year.
Having already toured with acts like Arctic Monkeys and the Black Angels, Sleepy Sun is currently on the road with City and Colour, and just announced a string of headlining dates. See below for a full list of live shows, and stay tuned for more information on the upcoming LP!

The Ballad Of Willy Robbins is a concept album that chronicles the journey of a working-class man who slowly loses it all– his ambition, his health, his family and his shelter. Having been compared to Bob Dylan & Woody Guthrie, Vikesh brings Willy Robbins to life with a mix of soft, sweet ballads and dark, melancholy tracks that address universal issues like domestic discord & the failures of the healthcare system.
