Miss Is Sleepy awakened! Slowly but surely, beat machine directs the rhythm, bass guitar, minimalistic Fender Rhodes follows together with hypnotising melodic vocals. They take you upon a journey through woodlands, deserts, childhood memories and distant lands. Each piece is a tale sang with the crooked voice of Huck Finn and his banjo.

"Their music can be described as folktronica but there is so much more to it, makes you think about the Cure, Kraftwerk, Beach House, folky/electronic the Kills. There is something quite rock'n'roll and psychedelic about them, you can hear it in Izabela's hypnotic, passionate & electrifying voice often compared to singers such as Patti Smith"

The band was formed after Izabela came back to Poland in 2014 from London where she learned how to play the banjo. All three members got together and mixed their music influences - folk & blues, electronic-minimal and hip-hop - into a new original form called Miss Is Sleepy.

Their debut EP En Route, released at the end of February 2016, won an award for the best Polish album cover of the year in 2015. Songs from the EP have been recognised by Polish and international music journalists and bloggers. Currently the band is working on their LP to be released spring 2017.

They have been playing concerts in the most famous venues in Poland, were invited to play at Open'er Festival 2016 Firestone stage, among other hot newcomer acts. Most recently they played as a support act for the NY based Cigarettes After Sex.

"Seeing Miss Is Sleepy play live is a hypnotic experience, their performance is build up by pictoresque psychedelic scenes from a roadtrip through canyons, deserts, woodlands - which fits perfectly the narrative in their songs. There is beauty, space, roughness, there is a melody that draws you in"
