“A perfectly summer-tinged tune that invites listeners into newfound warmth” -Interview
Sweden’s The Sun Days are streaming their debut LP today via FADER who are calling it “a pristine debut full-length… the Gothenburg five-piece wraps anxiety and heartache in deliberately cheerful packages, as if they’re balancing the weight of the world on a single, sunny riff.” Album will be released on March 25, 2016 on Run For Cover Records continuing the label’s collaboration with Swedish indie Luxxury Records (Makthaverskan, Westkust) in Europe. Pre-order for the LP is now available via the Run For Cover webstore.
The Sun Days are the latest promising export from Gothenburg’s burgeoning indie-pop scene. The album breathes new life into the Sarah Records sound of the UK in the 80’s, mixing the jangly, upbeat musicianship of bands like The Field Mice and Heavenly with a jaw-dropping vocal performance that rivals hometown contemporaries and label mates Makthaverskan and Westkust. Anthemic highlights like “Come Have Me Over” and “Don’t Need To Be Them” are true slices of dream-pop perfection that are sure to stick in your head whenever you think of sunnier days to come.
