Sometimes bands come out of literal nowhere and are just bloody good. South east London's Labradoor are one of those bands. A new shiny plaything for all those who just die for tropical-pop music and yearn for those summer months to come back around.
Wait a second...tropical-pop in winter? You've gotta be joking, right? No! An intro that reminds of Toto's "Africa" intertwined with Indian tendencies gets those veins pumping blood round so fast that warmth actually returns to the skeletal cage you call a home. You close your eyes and open them again, "is it summer yet"? no, but Labradoor give you a safe haven to rest those restless limbs. Sitar sounds saunter into being, accompanied by subtle synths and bouncy drums - so much so that if you're not moving to it, you're probably already dead.
With vocal sounds that're centred around a The Postal Service-esque framework, "The Sleep" harnesses all the powers of the sun and warms up your hibernating place in advance for next summer, despite it being light years away.
