Sunset Sons in Toon – Ex Alps Band No1 in iTunes Rock Chart!
Sunset Sons rocked Newcastle on Saturday night and their new EP The Fall Line was released on Sunday hitting No1 in the iTunes Rock Chart! We’ve just about recovered from the hangover now, as a bit of a La Tania reunion took place as is usual at any UK meet up.
Since moving on from their covers band, The Cheerleaders, and writing their own stuff as Sunset Sons they’ve certainly raised their profile in recent months. Nominated in BBC Radio, MTV and XFMs lists of bands to look out for in 2015, having track of the day for their latest single Medicine on Radio One and signed to Polydor Records – recording tracks for the album in Nashville!
A sold out ThinkTank night at Digital in Newcastle on Saturday night (following a sold out night in Manchester on Friday) with support from Manchester band Man Made, saw the band belt out their own, and now very familiar tracks Come Easy, Know My Name, She Wants plus off the new Fall Line EP the single Medicine and Blondie.
Just the one cover now, which they also played back in Meribel & La Tania back in January – Jamie T’s Sticks “n” Stones – got to be their track on a future Live Lounge appearance, but hurry Fearne Cotton loves you and leaves Radio One soon! The last single “Remember” which got a fair bit of air play was instantly recognised by the Geordie crowd – great to see so many people know the words!
Encores of Loa and the anthemic, shortly to be a classic, On The Road capped a great show.
Great to meet Geordie drummer, Jed’s parents – the old man plays the drums a bit too…
Good to see the merchandise stall selling Sunset Sons Surf Wax – nice touch!
