“Imagine Jefferson Airplane re-toole for the 21st century, or GOAT if they’d pick up a few Sandy Denny references.”

“Sundowners are undoubtedly an exciting prospect, with a very defined sense of who they are” (NME)

Sundowners 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, 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.


*Entry is free before 9pm & £4 after. These tickets are designed to guarantee entry after 9 should the venue be at capacity. No refund will be given to early arrivals. For more information please visit our website www.telfordswarehouse.com or call us on 01244 390 090

Please note the event begins at 21:00 with support from local DJ’s. Live music begins at 22:00.

Come all ye, you fools and freaks

And assemble by the fireside

Bring drums and whistles and guitars

Let’s scratch the itch we have inside.

Bring yourselves in strange attire,

Sing together in a heavenly choir.

Let us celebrate and quaff and eat.

We’ve seen off winter and tonight’s our treat.

Here in comes the bearded lady

The dancing bear and old slim shady

Following on the tarot man

and a girl with frogs kept in a can.

Here’s the man with burning balls

And the girls who walk through walls.

Short arsed, giant or just  plain weird

Rules fall down because we’re here .

If you’re boring stay at home

You deserve to die alone

Tonight is all about the spark

That makes us special, leaves our mark

Imperfections praised tonight

Dress up, show off and then unite.

Together we will start the spring.

We will make the rafters ring.

(Old Cheshire poem)

(c) Russell Mabbutt 2015

It’s eggs and chickens and bunnies and fluff and chocolate.

It’s rebirth too and tonight, for one night only our spectacular open mic night is reborn as a celebration of the alternative,  and all things freaky and all things circus.
