With influences such as Placebo, Joy Division, Muse and Radiohead, their music is made of hook-leads and sing-to vocal melodies that can either make you ‘tap your heels out loud’ or reflect on your beliefs. After a Performance, the audience has experienced two things; our Passion, & their enjoyment.

Biography


Based on four life-long friends from Southern California, Sleep Paralysis find music to be their greatest form of expression. Since their birth in 2003, the band has performed at many venues throughout California as well as in Mexico. They have played from local gigs to large festivals where they have shared the stage with various National acts. In early 2004, the band released their first E.P. titled "40% Ghosts". This first E.P. marked the beginning of Sleep Paralysis’ musical career. With songs like 'Mourn', Sleep Paralysis began to build a fan base that extended past local fans- across international borders and specific musical genres. Since then their music has grown; experimenting with their styles, talents, and the ever growing musical influences.

Inspired by such Artists as Placebo, Joy Division, Muse and Radiohead, their music is made of hook-leads and sing-to vocal melodies that can either make you ‘tap your heels out loud’ or reflect on your beliefs. In their Performance, Sleep Paralysis believes the audience has to experience their music not only as it is heard, but as they can interpret it for themselves. “I think we are approaching that time.” says Alex, “We have grown to fit the music industry as it has changed. We now can express our passion and emotions through our music and pass it on to the listener, building a connection only music can achieve.”
Today, Sleep Paralysis find themselves on their way to being part of that change.

Lyrics

Lilac

Written By: Sleep Paralysis


Extend your Arms
Inhale My Heart
Blood from my Hands,
Drops into the Glass.
Feeling Pretentious
and getting connected
as well through my self
Felling deceptions
and getting corrected
Im a failure my friends

Im Still Here...

See through Illusions
Impressive conclusions
an Angel in Vain
she said through her visions
"believe your ambitions"
what makes you a saint?
extend your arms,
inhale my words
let’s state the obvious
Lets state the obvious...

Im still Here...
