Support comes from Glasgow-based, Health + Beauty (formerly of The Ninth Wave)

‘Everything There Is’ is released on July 14th, 2023.


Day Sleeper craft an entirely unique form of experimentalist pop, hidden away in their studio in the heart of Leith. Infectious melodies are hewn from slabs of noise and improvisational structures, driven by the elaborate and confessional songwriting of Leo Bargery (formerly Mt Doubt). Having released their acclaimed debut single “Low Joy” in early 2023, the band will release their first EP “Everything There Is” on July 14th, with a celebratory launch show at The Mash House also representing their live debut.

Day Sleeper are Leo Bargery, Ryan Firth, Carron Miller, James Callaghan, Liam Dempsey and Edwin McLachlan. FFO: Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Haim, Tame Impala, St Vincent, Grizzly Bear, Future Islands.

Health and Beauty is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist Calum Stewart (The Ninth Wave). It is a project of two sides. Inspired by a background in indie bands, and charged with a love for dance music and the aesthetic of the 80s and 90s, the songs straddle two distinct lines: euphoric techno and introspective, emotive pop. Soaring synth leads, pulsating bass lines reminiscent of New Order, and a driving rhythm section, are all enveloped by his distinctive falsetto vocals and a well-developed pop sensibility.
