When it comes to Britpop acts you don’t get much more iconic than Sleeper.
Lead Singer Louise Wener typified the Britpop look as well as the sound.
She had a classic 1960’s mod-style which, when coupled with a pop led Indie band worked perfectly.
They formed in 1993 and found success quickly with their first big hit single “Inbetweener” coming out in 1995.
This was followed by a string of hit singles, including “Sale of the Century”, “Nice Guy Eddie” and “Statuesque”.
Whilst they only released 3 albums they were all top 10 hits with 1996’s “The It Girl” going Platinum.
They gained even more popularity after their cover of Blondie’s “Atomic” was featured on the Trainspotting soundtrack.
They split in 1998 but reformed in 2017 with a new album due out in 2019.
