Sunbirds, Sunshine, All The Time!
Paul is right - its hard to resist a band that evokes a sunny disposition when the English summer commences. Its even harder when the band's name evokes summer frivolity. Best Coast, Eternal Summer, Beach Fossils, are all on high rotation - and it helps that they are kick arse bands too.
Sunbirds, when reading of their make-up, would appear to have a confused notion of what it means to make sunny pop, due to dislocation of geography - members hark from London, Los Angeles and France. However their generous and upside down frown take on shoegaze fuzz is very refreshing, and marks them as a band to keep an eye on over the summer months - which you can start doing next week! Sunbirds are playing Hoxton Bar and Grill on Monday 29th June (supporting The Whigs and Expatriate), before launching their first EP River Run, out in July through Smoky Carrot.
