Big Sleep

Indie // Dublin, Dublin // They / Them

Big Sleep is a collaboration between Dubliner Rónán Connolly and Florence born Matteo Poli. The Dublin based indie-alternative duo blends influences of current and classic rock with R&B, pop and soul to create a sound that resembles the middle ground between the likes of DOPE LEMON, Whitney, and The Drums.

The pair first met at school when Poli came to Dublin on exchange to learn English. After countless hours spent playing open mics, charity gigs, battles of the bands and busking sessions they gained a reputation for their energetic live shows, performing as a four-piece with a roster of some of Dublin’s most talented musicians.

Now as mainstays of the city's live scene, they're onstage every week in venues across Dublin with sold-out shows in Whelan’s and Bellobar to name a few. Summer 2021 was still uneventful for many in the Irish live music scene, so Big Sleep travelled to the Italian capital to make their international live debut with 6 sold out shows over 3 nights at La Cairola, Rome.

Big Sleep’s debut EP, 'Feel Something Someday' is set for release in June 2022. Big Sleep will play the Sound House, Dublin stage on May 21st. Grab your tickets here.
