The young power jazz heavyweights from Trondheim have swept over Norway's jazz clubs and festivals since the start in 2015 and have won Jazzintro and the title "Young jazz musicians of the year 2018" with an associated Gramo scholarship of 150,000 kroner. By playing an incredible amount together, the trio has developed their very own sound and interaction that has received praise and good reviews in both the Norwegian and international press.
With a ensemble consisting of drums, baritone guitar / bass-VI and vibraphone, I LIKE TO SLEEP conducts groundbreaking work where they draw aesthetics from the 60s and 70s freer jazz and prog rock, and combine it with improvisation-based music and raw energy. The music is best described with their own mantra, "powerjazz to the people".
On April 17, 2020, the trio released their second album "Daymare" on the highly acclaimed record company Rune Grammofon to rave reviews from the national and international press. In the summer of 2022, the trio will release their third studio album "Sleeping Beauty" on Rune Grammofon.
