Stealing Sheep is a band of three girls from Liverpool, England. All sing in this trio, but each plays a different instrument: Rebecca Hawley the keyboard, Emily Lansley the guitar and Lucy Mercer the drums. They began playing together in 2011. And in 2012 they released their debut album Into the Diamond Sun with Heavenly Recordings. The album had received reviews and won international admiration. Their most popular single “Shut Eye” has been part of several commercials and television shows like Grey’s Anatomy or the soundtrack of the Playstation videogame, Tear Away. Stealing Sheep’s sound is identified by its purely feminine arrangements, the use of low fidelity analog synthesizers, dirty guitar sounds and unusual percussion. Some artists and bands they admire are Metronomy, Moondog, David Lynch, Grimes, Grayson Perry, Daft Punk, Lorde and Yes, among others.
