Liverpool trio Stealing Sheep -- Emily Lansley, Rebecca Hawley, and Lucy Mercer -- formed in 2010. The group set about writing and rehearsing that summer and began to produce their haunting psych-folk sound, drenched with otherworldly harmonies, jaunty guitars, and almost tribal, hypnotic beats. Citing a variety of influences from Twin Sister to Broadcast alongside Krautrock and freak-folk music, their three-part harmonies and droning synths created a dark and brooding sound that nodded to Efterklang and Mice Parade. Following the release of two EPs, What if the Lights Went Out and Noah and the Paper Moon, the band was snapped up by Heavenly Records. “Shut Eye” -- the first fruit from sessions for their debut album -- was released in May 2012. ~ Scott Kerr
