What is the origin of the name Team Sleep?
« on: Jun 09, 2015, 07:01 AM »
Apparently it took about a year for the band members to agree on the name, or for the suits to agree or something, so I don't know if it's maybe a taboo subject, or maybe a touchy issue among the band members.

Cool name.  Love the name!  Perhaps a slight nod to the band Sleep, or certain shared non-musical creative commonalities?  (Or maybe that was one of the alleged contentions to not at all be associated with the band Sleep.)

In any case, it would be great to understand the band name's origins.

Thank you!

i've always thought it has relation with the dream pop or shoe gaze, and all this kind of dreamy music, even as you said, stoner music.

Some of my friends and relatives think that Team Sleep is a synonym for group sex.

lol i love it. 

there's an interview where chino said he always liked the simplicity of the band name "sleep", but since it was already taken and since he's playing with a "team" of his friends, the band was named "team sleep."

I don't know how to interpret this comment.

Thank you!

(I'd love to get a link if anyone comes across the interview, as well as any additional information - like which band member originated the idea "Team Sleep"...)

It was supposed to be because the music was dreamy and was meant for you to put headphones on while in bed

Word. Really relaxes me at night, even the heavier songs.

And it's probably my favourite band name ever haha.

Always loved their name, very ironic/humorous.

If that's what their name means, then I should try listening to them while I sleep at least once.
