Assembled in 2011, Minneapolis rock quartet Sleep Study has lived up to high expectations set by their dedicated followers and the media.
The band’s unapologetic dedication to their modern take on a 70’s pop sound has earned them continued press from news outlets in their home state and beyond. Their single "Flower Girl" was nominated for an Independent Music Award and the band was recently named by Paste Magazine as one of 12 Minnesota Bands You Should Listen to Now.
After being discovered by Michael Simon, President of The Harry Fox Agency, Sleep Study's debut album Nothing Can Destroy was officially released August 2012 on Simon Recordings and immediately noted by Star Tribune writer Chris Riemenschneider as an album expected to “be on many local critics’ year-end lists”.
The band's formula is a natural cooperative of strengths from all members, combining Ryan Paul Plewacki’s (vocals/guitar) brand of Brit flavored rock with Justin Hartke’s (vocals/bass) Seattle upbringing. The calculated drumming of Michael Gunvalson solidifies their retro sound. Each individual has a rich history in the Minneapolis and national music world. Collectively, the members of Sleep Study have shared stages and played on recordings with Al Kooper, Mark Mallman, Kid Dakota, The Honeydogs, On An On, and more.
New album to be released early 2019 on Simon Recoerdings.<br>
