British collective Sleep Token is a true riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Sonically, the group is a beautiful mixture of rock, metal, and pop, all bound together by an almost ritualistic feel and ambience that is characteristic of Sleep Token’s recordings and especially their live shows. The group’s dream-like lyrics, inspired by age-old myths from all around the world, transport you to a time and place where Sleep Token feel weirdly and deeply familiar, despite their enigmatic anonymity.
Though the anonymity adds a whole new dimension to the experience of listening to their music, it is clear from how Sleep Token play that it is, in fact, all about the music – and only the music. In their own words, the group doesn’t place any value on who they are, but instead on what they make. Whether you’re a fan of rock, pop, metal, or electronic music, Sleep Token’s show at Ilosaarirock is a must-see for you. Surrender to the truly unique ambience at Sleep Token's first Finnish show at Ilosaarirock this July!
