The Sundowners, who released their debut self-titled album on Skeleton Key Records earlier this year, will be in action at Telford’s Warehouse in Chester on Friday, August 14.
Recorded almost entirely live in Parr Street studios, Liverpool, over a two week period in the summer of 2014, the album was produced by James Skelly, Ian Skelly and Richard Turvey and reflects Fiona and Niamh’s mutual love of psyche and west coast harmonies.
The 11-tracks of psyche-folk, harmony heavy, well-crafted pop gems were in part inspired by the diverse and eclectic range of music the band listened to during recording - Goat, Tame Impala, Can, Neu!, Portishead, Air, Gillian Welch, Velvet Underground, Fairport Convention.
Now a formidable live act, the Wirral five-piece benefit from an almost telepathic on-stage understanding born out of both Fiona and Niamh’s long-term friendship and the addition of Fiona’s brother Alfie on guitar.
The last 12 months have seen the band release a brace of limited edition singles, tour constantly playing alongside the likes of Cats Eyes and Kasabian and appear at both the All Tomorrow’s Parties and Glastonbury Festivals, where they played in the packed BBC Introducing tent.
The Sundowners will be supported by singer-songwriter Marvin Powell and a DJ set from The Coral.
Entry is free before 9pm and £4 thereafter. Call 01244 390 090 or visit www.telfordswarehouse.com.
