Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #12: The Sunshine Underground

By on Sunday, 12th August 2007 at 12:40 pm

Sunshine UndergroundIn these times of “nu-rave” and mass-marketed hype machines (yes, Kate Nash I’m looking at you), its nice to see a band such as The Sunshine Underground who are doing things on their own terms. Mixing styles between Klaxons, Switches and umpteen other indie/dance bands of the last five years, this band will instantly sound at home whilst distinctly fresh.

Hailing from Leeds, the band specialise in trippy tracks that are the perfect wake up to any cold winter morning – you’ll be up and out of bed quicker than you would know with them on in the background.

Their debut self titled album is one of the few albums of this year that is consistently good throughout – whilst there are stand out tracks, the whole collection is very rewarding to listen in one go.

Heralded by some bloggers as “the sound of 2007”, they’ve sold out dates in their hometown of Leeds and London, and toured with Pigeon Detectives, Happy Mondays and Idlewild.

The Sunshine Underground could be a new outlet for boisterous pop, filling the void left by the likes of 90’s stars Pulp and Blur.
