A joyful wave of saxophone soaked, salsa-inspired, jazz-driven instrumentation – jammed & performed with great skill – designed to lift your mood.
What a voice. The funk-inspired energy of the track suits the soulful & stylish sound of the artist’s voice superbly.
I’m a nonconformist & a contrarian. People like to be miserable & melancholy or own self-deprecation like it’s a religion. That’s unattractive to me.
The beats, the riffs, the flow, the tone & character in the voices – just sensational – everything about this gig was insanely fantastic.
Seduced by the emotion of the broken down vocal & simplicity of the musicianship – a sublime level of talent, the sheer power of songwriting & passion.

An overcast, dreary, very British Tuesday; a good day to talk about an exciting alternative band from Sydney, Australia. The Sunpilots. We’re absolutely loving this sound. They’re kind of fusing the whole alternative rock thing, (think Incubus, Queens of the Stone Age, System of a Down) with an almost Kate Bush kind of artistry. Lyrically, melodically, … Continued
Your favourite new sound. Pretty much everything you want in a live band. Reggae, ska, dubby rock, joy, dancing, melodies, big hair. A happy fusion of sounds from all over the globe, a little bit of an Incubus meets Sublime vibe, but with even more colour, and slightly less swearing.
