The Sundowners self-titled debut will release 9th February 2015 via Skeleton Key Records and will tour the UK in support of the release, kicking off 10th February at - Leeds Oporto.
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, the Wirral 5-piece 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.
