If ever they film a sequel to Nicolas Winding Refn’s hyper-stylish filmĀ Drive, Irish trio Sleep Thieves should be on the short list of for scoring duties. Sunny and soaring, new single “Sparks” stomps along with retro flair, announcing the band as a welcome force in the electro-pop (orĀ “Disco-Noir,” as the Irish Times put it) landscape. Not to be too wrapped in the past, the Sleep Thieves toss enough details and modern-leaning elements into the mix to keep an already enjoyable song from ever feeling like retread.

Give “Sparks” a listen below.
