The Sundowners are very much part of a new stream of talent emerging from the banks of the Mersey, an area which has a habit of giving birth to great bands.

The Wirral 5-piece are readying the release of their debut single ‘Hummingbird’, produced by James & Ian Skelly from The Coral no less. ‘Hummingbird’ has a real natural charm; it is bright, dreamy pop with gorgeous melodies, harmonies and sweetly honed vocals. The Sundowners graced us with some gorgeous demos earlier in the year but is fantastic to hear of a first proper release, with ‘Hummingbird’ arriving on December 3rd. 

Introducing: The Sundowners

Over the years Merseyside has supplied the world with some of the finest musical talent. It’s nice to see this tradition is alive and well. Step forward Wirral five piece The Sundowners. Forming last year, they spent time studiously perfecting songs while wooing  audiences across the UK with the likes of Folks and Cats Eyes.

These timeless and heart warming songs stem from a joyous mix of close knit harmonies, rich vocals, wonderful guitar playing and an appreciation of Fleetwood Mac, Crosby Stills and Nash, The Byrds and The Coral. It is worth mentioning too that considering lead guitarist Alfie and vocalist Fiona are brother and sister of The Coral’s James and Ian Skelly, imagine what it’s like round their house?

While these might only be demos, but, there’s something really great and timeless about them, hopefully there is a proper release in 2012.
