Sleepy Gonzales is an unsigned four-piece from Surrey, BC, who writes, records, and produces all of their own music. Cristian and Beni are twins and have grown up playing music and writing songs together. They met Allyson in high school. Allyson brings a sad, soothing voice that is the balance on the scale between the twins. Nick, on the bass guitar, comes from a punk background and brings an edge to the band dynamic. In a March 2018 music writer Aly Laube described IFHY, track 6 on Dayna, as “Crash and the Boys-esque” and wrote: “Their sound is becoming heavier and more danceable as the band gets comfortable as a gigging Vancouver band.” Dayna covers the range of Sleepy Gonzales’ diverse musical influences from Pink Floyd to the Sex Pistols.
