Jonathan Bree to embark on NZ tour

With his love of psychedelically-tinged 60’s chamber pop and stark, dissident lyricism, Jonathan Bree and his faceless band will take the 2018 Sleepwalking album on tour throughout New Zealand this November.

Jonathan Bree’s third solo album, Sleepwalking was released in June 2018 via the artist / producer’s own label, Lil’ Chief Records. It saw the emergence of the mysterious masked band. They first appeared in his music video for ‘Weird Hardcore’ (from second album A Little Night Music) but who suddenly caught everyone’s attention with Jonathan’s self-directed music video for the release of ‘You’re So Cool’.

Like his previous two albums, Sleepwalking has a heavy orchestrated element featuring real strings, celeste and soprano vocals, but on Sleepwalking Jonathan's darker utilities of pop music take these sounds to an eerie and more unsettling landscape. 

Sleepwalking features a number of duets with other musicians notably Chelsea Nikkel (Princess Chelsea) and Clara Viñals (Renaldo & Clara) in Bree’s more Gainsbourg inspired pop songs. The album sees Jonathan successfully dip in and out of the avant-garde on 'You’re So Cool', 'Boombox Serenade' and 'Plucking Petals' and effectively walk the line between knowing pop music and well... the just plain weird on 'Static' and 'Sleepwalking'.

Fresh off the back of an extensive tour of the U.K, Europe and Korea, the November Sleepwalking tour will see "The Master of Misery" perform in New Zealand for the first time since 2017s' Others Way Festival. Joined by his faceless band, audiences will get the chance to hear album singles 'Fuck It' which topped the 95bFM charts in June 2018, 'You're So Cool' - Time Out New Yorks, best music video of 2017 as well as 'Valentine' and 'Say You Love Me Too'.
