Drawing on a strong and wide ranging mix of writing talent present between all five members, the band continue to test the boundaries of an eclectic mix of influences ranging from Blues, Rock, funk, rhythm, metal and more.
With driving riffs, soaring ballads and near funk like rhythms, Sundown continue to please the listener with a well rounded mix of sounds and genre’s.
Recent highlights include a gig at Factory251, who invited them back as headline, The Zanzibar club and The Live rooms, all of whom asked the band back due to crowd reaction.

Sundown are hugely excited for the future and have been genuinely blown away by fan, and venue reactions at all the clubs they have played”.
