Sundowners are: Niamh Rowe (vocals & guitar) Fiona Skelly (vocals & guitar) Alfie Skelly (lead guitar) Tim Cunningham (bass & backing vocals) Jim Sharrock (drums).
Hailing from the Wirral, Merseyside UK, the 5-piece psych-folk outfit have announced details of their debut self-titled album which will be released on Skeleton Key Records on Monday January 26th 2015.
Recorded almost entirely live in Parr Street studios, Liverpool, over a 2 week period in the summer of 2014, the album was produced by James Skelly, Ian Skelly & 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, Sundowners benefit from an almost telepathic on-stage understanding born out of both Fiona & 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 & Kasabian and appear at both the All Tomorrow’s Parties and Glastonbury Festivals, where they played in the packed BBC Introducing tent.
The first single release from the album is 'Into The Light', which was released December 8th 2014.
