‘Where The People Go’ is the first single from the forthcoming ‘Home’ E.P. by The Sunday Shift. The Home E.P. has been scheduled for release on all digital platforms on the 11/22/2019.
The Sunday Shift are a four-piece consisting of Josh Falconer, Matt Bradstreet, Arms Juarez and Tom Porter.
The band is built around the songwriting partnership of Josh and Matt, who originally met at a young age in one of the many industrial towns of the Midlands, where they garnered a cult fanbase for their songwriting and eclectic live shows, having supported British Sea Power on their UK tour and publicity from NME and DIY at the height of this early phase; before moving to London where they met bassist Tom Porter and drummer Arms Juarez. They bonded over a common love of 80s and 90s guitar music and modern poetry.
The‘Home’ E.P.is a pivotal series of tracks we really need now in the modern music scene, with thoughtful lyrical composition and masterful instrument performance. The Sunday Shift has, and with great success, brought back some of the best from the 80’s soundscapes but with a unique and modern flair, the deep melancholic sounds of the vocals, combined with the remarkable talents of the supporting members bring real value to the band’s messages in the songs.
Songs of note, When She Stares is an observation in the human condition of the teenage years, the feeling of immortality and the feeling that the weekends last forever is strong here. In Where The People Go, the band revisits somber moments and some tranquility in moving beyond. The Sunday Shift also takes time to show a playful side, in the development of the song Queen’s Nose, take to making segmented thoughts into the moment by moment soundtrack of a thought. Granted, I wax poetic about this band’s work, but it has a hypnotic drone to it, like the beat of a heart or the low shallow breath of a loved one beside you sleeping, magical and metaphysical, and above all natural.
The ‘Home’ E.P. was recorded with North London producer Margo Broom (‘Fat White Family’, ‘Telegram’, ‘Catholic Action’) at Hermitage Works Studios, Manor House. The cover photo was taken by fashion photographer and close friend, Auriane Defert.
Josh and Matt say of ‘Home’ E.P.:
“it is a portrait of modern living, through a plethora of narratives. When the record was written we both lived in quite an isolated area on the outskirts of the city (which has since been rebuilt), away from the bustle but with all the characters it inevitably attracts. The EP attempts to capture the essence of those people”
