Art Of Sleeping are fresh out of the triple j studios in Sydney where they have just taken part in the esteemed ‘Like A Version’ segment. The Brisbane boys performed their original song ‘Crazy’ taken from their debut album ‘Shake Shiver’ and a sultry rendition of Drake’s smash hit ‘Hotline Bling’ which currently sits at #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and of which Drake has just dropped a music video which at this moment is breaking the internet. Art Of Sleeping put their own unique spin on the hit, showing of their signature guitars riffs and Caleb’s crooning vocals that lends itself perfectly to Drizzy’s sexy slow jam.
“Melodically, we wanted to stay reasonably true to the original vocal which allowed us to experiment more instrumentally with some panning synth and fuzzy guitar sounds. We decided to change around some of the chord structure to create an interpretation of the song that hopefully reflects our sound with out sacrificing the magic of the original. I also threw in a cheeky line from the song ‘Marvin’s Room’ for fans of Drakes earlier albums.” – Caleb Hodges
Art Of Sleeping were recently announced as lead support act for the Boy & Bear national ‘Limit Of Love’ album tour that begins at the end of January 2016, and will see them performing across six states to some of their biggest audiences to date including their hometown Riverstage.

The band will be performing alongside the likes of Mumford & Sons, Jake Bugg, Future Islands, The Vaccines, The Jungle Giants and Meg Mac in November.
Art Of Sleeping’s debut album ‘Shake Shiver’ was released in July and has seen a steady stream of glowing album reviews with the likes of the Sydney Morning Herald declaring “Art Of Sleeping have set a high bar with their debut longplayer. Production from Yanto Browning and Tom Iansek sees the album emanate a warmth and power, which in combination with smart, poignant lyrical turns, has resulted in one of the most compelling releases of the year”.
‘Bleeding Out’ as well as previously released singles ‘Crazy’ and ‘Voodoo’ have all received additions on the triple j playlist and the bands flourishing online presence resulting in an accumulation of over 2.7 million streams online.
