    ..........youth, art, the pulse of the city. City of Hearts is a song to walk or dance to.
    "If Gary Numan spawned a love-child with Niki And The Dove it would sound like this (CIty of Hearts)" Eddy Temple-Morris, XFM
    ”Bewitching, beguiling, dark-hearted…infectious, substantial noir-disco.. electropop” The Irish Times
    "If they ever film a sequel to Nicolas Winding Refn’s hyper-stylish film Drive......Sleep Thieves should be on the short list for scoring duties"
    Pigeons and Planes
    “.....think wave-y-gothic vocals (Austra/Fever Ray/The Golden Filter) floating in and out from the dark to the bright side and back!"
    Deer De Bois

The Dublin-dwelling trio met through Twitter where they bonded over film soundtracks and vintage synths. This musical friendship was solidified in the recording of their self-released EP, Islands in 2012, which garnered accolades from the press.

    City of Hearts
    I felt that I was half alive
    I counted 24, 25
    I wanted,
    I wanted not to be lonely but still alone
    Walking slowly but nearing home
    I wanted
    I wanted

    In this old city of hearts
    What is young we tear apart
    I have always wondered why
    In this old city of hearts
    What is young we tear apart
    Won’t you open up our eyes

    You’d say that it was true to form
    I was wishing hard for a storm
    I wanted,
    I wanted to see storm clouds rushing by
    In a dark, brooding, stormy sky
    I wanted, I wanted

    In this old city of hearts
    What is young we tear apart
    I have always wondered why
    In this old city of hearts
    What is young we tear apart
    Won’t you open up our eyes
