The Sunshine Underground

The Sunshine Underground


DF Concerts & Aberdeen Performing Arts Presents The Sunshine Underground are an English alternative dance band based in Leeds. They play a variety of pop, alternative and electronic music, and to date have released three full-length albums It’s been nine years since The Sunshine Underground’s explosive 2006 debut “Raise The Alarm” - a dance-punk record described by The Guardian as “every bit as jerkily compulsive as The Rapture’s House of Jealous Lovers” - surfed the new rave wave into the UK’s wider consciousness. The cultural permeation spread even further when Sony Records released the album in Japan and their song “Put You In Your Place” was a big hit. Two sold out tours resulted in a cult following of which the quite bizarre stories include boxes of Yorkshire tea being regularly waved in the air at gigs.  Four years of touring, writing and recording passed before the band released their 2010 sophomore “Nobody’s Coming To Save You”. Their trademark explosiveness was still evident, but this was a more rhythmic and patient affair, with tracks like ‘Here It Comes’ and ‘We’ve Always Been Your Friends’ showcasing a distinct artistry in the band’s songwriting. Another four years passed since then and they returned with their third album “The Sunshine Underground" with Uncut describing it as “An almighty album exploding in colour with it soaring in true techno fashion, it’s a blast of sunshine with an almighty anthemic punch”. It is a dilemma every band must face at some point in their career. Keep writing the same songs for the same people, or take a risk and change everything? Reinvention is a modern fact of music, and for a band that derive their name from a Chemical Brothers song, moving ever further towards dance music has been more natural than we ever could have imagined. The bands next and fourth album will be released in early 2016 with further details to follow shortly.
