  • Compact Disc (CD)

    Sleep Sound CD in a beautiful gatefold custom made wallet - designed in house and printed on recycled card. Go on, treat yourself.

    As usual it's pay what you want or pay what you think it's worth...the minimum price of £1.60 literally only covers the cost of the physical production of the CD and you get a link to the download with your receipt so you can download and listen straight away! We want people to have this album, to enjoy it and to share it around but obviously we're also trying to make ends meet. So if you're not so flush at the moment just pay the £1.60...or just download the digital version below for whatever you want to pay. Even free - we don't even ask for your email address.

    If you feel moved to maybe float us a bit more then as ever, we do very much appreciate it. It's a fairly simple equation... your money makes this music.

lyrics

(With a nod to Philip Larkin)

As this day ends all swaddled in dark cloud,
I turn to you the pivot I move round.
Gladden my heart and wash away my sin.
Your toothless smile will let my God back in.

In times when things grow strange
Just know that we won't change

As this day ends...all broken, battered, bruised,
With every hour a wave of more bad news.
I thank my stars I'm driving home to you,
My three-in-one all snuggled in one room.

In times when things grow strange
Just know that we won't change
In times when nothing stands
Your hands are in our hands

As this day ends...and growing's sadness looms,
With knowledge gained a happiness you'll lose.
Yes there is bad in every single soul,
But at least for now no need for you to know.

In times when things grow strange
Just know that we won't change
In times when nothing stands
Your hands are in our hands

As this day ends all swaddled in dark clouds,
I turn to you the pivot I move round.
Lift up your arms and turn to me your eyes,
Yes something's changed and the world is twice the size.

In times when things grow strange
Just know that we won't change
In times when nothing stands
Your hands are in our hands

about

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...

"a big sound from this impressive outfit...inspired, anthemic, great" - Q magazine
