This weeks Firefly Spotlight belongs to pop rock band, Sleeper Agent
Why Should You Listen?
Representing Bowling Green, Kentucky is pop/rock band, Sleeper Agent. Consisting of six members, Alex Kandel (Vocals), Tony Smith (Guitar/Vocals), Justin Wilson (Drums), Lee Williams (Bass), Scott Gardner (Keys/Synth), and Josh Martin (Lead Guitar), Sleeper Agent has found themselves rapidly growing in popularity the past few years.
Since the release of their debut album, Celebrasion, Sleeper Agent has blown within the music industry. Rolling Stone declared them as a ‘Band To Watch’, SPIN described them as ‘instantly lovable, and Esquire stated they were ‘the most original and forceful introduction to a new band we’ll hear all year’. If praise from three of the biggest magazines doesn’t sell you on this band, I don’t know what will.
Sleeper Agent utilizes their driving guitars, high energy, and infectious vocals to create their unique sound that combines the lovable elements of pop-punk with the attitude of garage rock. Their unique sound and high energy performances has helped land them major gigs across the country. Having played Coachella, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, opened for Weezer and Fun, and have their music featured on various commercials, Sleeper Agent has created quite an impressive resume in just a few years.
What To Listen For
A song off of their debut album, Celebrasion, “Get Burned” driving melody and sing-a-long chorus has quickly established itself as a fan favorite.
Get It Daddy
The leading single from Celebrasion, “Get It Daddy” has become one of the most popular songs off of their album and has even appeared on a Taco Bell ad.
The first single off of their new album (out next week, available for stream on Spotify now), About Last Night, “Waves” has quickly resonated with fans and has many people excited for the rest of the album.
Why We’re Excited!
With a resume like the one Sleeper Agent has compiled in the past few years, it’s tough to not be excited for their performance at Firefly this summer. Couple that with the praise that many people have given their live shows and it’s easy to see why many people, including us, are pumped up for their show.
If there is one certainty with Sleeper Agent, it is that they will absolutely rock the stage this summer and put on a show that will have people throughout the Firefly campground talking!
