Lifelong musicians and producers, musical duo Cheylene Murphy and Ryan McGroarty have crafted a world in Beauty Sleep where you're free to be whoever you want to be. Their music fuses iridescent, synth driven beds, dazzling guitar hooks and groovy baselines with immersive and lush visuals. Their live show is a joyous, energetic party and celebration of life with them and all their friends on stage bathed in a twinkling stratosphere of haze and lasers.
Beauty Sleep's debut album ‘Be Kind’ was released in May 2019 via Quiet Arch, a collection of songs that champion being kind to yourself and others and being good as honestly as you can be. The band have gained an avid following and graced stages at Electric Picnic, The Great Escape and Other Voices and picked up fans at BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Cool FM, RTE1, RTE 2FM & Spotify.
Based in Belfast, Beauty Sleep had to cancel their festivals bookings and tours due to COVID-19. However it's given them time to lock themselves away in their home studio and get creative. They are currently working on completing their sophomore album.
"Be Kind is one of the most accomplished debut records of 2019"
- Dan Hegarty, RTE 2FM
"From its cover art to the music within, Beauty Sleep’s debut is pure vibrancy, colour and self love. With production that has been pored over, bass lines hit grooves that never end, synths pulsate while guitars shimmer and take off. The dual vocal brilliance of McGroarty and Murphy overlaps amongst lush dream pop. Full emphasis on pop, with hooks for days and neon nights. A dream debut."
"Each song seems to fight over whether it could be a Christmas No 1. or a woozy summer banger... it's the reassuring record 2019 desperately needs."
- The Daily Mirror
"It's a lush love-letter to pop music delivered with a clear joie de vivre from start to finish...9/10"
- The Last Mixed Tape
"Be Kind will easily become your sound of the summer. Infact the whole release drips like honey from a champagne flute" - Get In Her Ears
