Never Too Late For A Captivating Debut Album – British Indie Rockers THE SUNCHARMS Do It With ‘DISTANT LIGHTS’

23 August 2021

Band: THE SUNCHARMS (Shefflied, UK)
Who: Band formed in 1990. They supported indie-pop legends such
as The Brilliant Corners, St Christopher, The Orchids, and The Television
Personalities
plus gigs with emerging shoegaze bands such as Cranes,
Catherine Wheel
and Curve.

Album: DISTANT LIGHTS
Released: 20 August 2021 via Sunday Records

The band: “30 years ago our black and white selves released our first two EPs
so we’re delighted to be finally releasing a debut album! We think our younger
selves would be into the new songs, though I guess they would want everything
played at twice the speed!! It’s the same five people with even the same instruments
(plus all the trimmings available in a modern studio) so it’s still very much a
Suncharms sound.”

Turn Up The Volume: Once again music shows its magic side: once a devotee
musician, always a devotee musician. And when you have 5 of them devotee
musicians, living in Sheffield (UK), and they just released their debut album,
30 years after they got addicted to music, then you must be The Suncharms.

Finally, their shoegaze muse, their guitar pop sensibility, their melancholic
songwriting craft is cemented in a long-player with a series of electrical dream
pop sparks for the midnight hours, far away from our disturbing reality. I’m still
in the process of getting deeper into each song, but the overall feeling is one of…
wanting to get deeper into each song.

Is Indie Music Dead? SUNDAY RECORDS Gives You The Loud And Dream Pop Clear Answer

Album: SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL
A 10 tracks compilation with 8 of the finest artists of Sunday Records
Sunday Records: An Indie Pop Label – with great ears, great taste and
a great vision – founded in 1990, Chicago, IL

To Turn Up The Volume‘s greedy ears, Indie will never disappear as long as
non-mainstream orientated artists put their heart and soul into whatever they
want to do musically, and as long as independent labels put their heart and
soul into giving the much-needed support to those adventurers.

This compilation shows loud and clear why alternative music is, overall, purer
and more genuine than what money-greedy big labels mostly sell. Of course, not
all indie stuff is good, and not all mainstream output is bad. In the end, it is the
music itself – whatever genre – that conquers – or not – the heart and soul of
the listener. But me/we need(s) indie for its adventurous spirit, its creative open-mindedness and we’ll see what happens approach.

Now back to the record. The featured artists are:

Strawberry Generation – affecting dream pop from Providence, Rhode Island, US
Letting Up Despite Great Faults (what a name) – shoegazy/dreamy jingle jangle electricity from Austin, Texas
Mariana In Our Heads – synth-driven daydream pop from Japan
Alpaca Sports – romantic Vampire Weekend-like pop from Sweden, Europe
The Arctic Flow – reveries about love, loss, joy and sadness from
a one-man-band based in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
The Suncharms – slow/fast melancholia pop from Sheffield, UK
Starry Eyed Cadet – dream pop with The Sundays echoes, San Francisco, CA
Sugar World – frisky dream guitar musings from San Diego, California

Enough said, stream/buy
all these beauties…

Moody Love Song ‘MONSTER CLUB’ by THE SUNCHARMS

8 April 2020

Band: THE SUNCHARMS (Shefflied, UK)

Who: Band formed in 1990 the band supported indie-pop legends such as The Brilliant Corners, St Christopher, The Orchids and The Television Personalities plus gigs with emerging shoegaze bands such as Cranes, Catherine Wheel and Curve.”

Track: MONSTER CLUB – latest single

Score: If this was the sixties this moody love ballad would be on a Wurlitzer jukebox in a downtown bar where lonely hearts have a drink and dream about the one and only true companion. It’s a hopeful reverie many of us experienced sometime, somewhere. Relax, sit down, dim the lights and let your thoughts drift away…

It’s Saturday night, that doorway looms
leading to the darkness under the streets
A room painted black, lost souls they collide as one.

Chill in my heart, you’ll suck me dry – I’ll do the same to you – there’ll be stories to tell
I’m feeling immortal, I’m feeling immortal again.

You told me to embrace the dark – will you take me with you?
I hope you will – I’ll wrap you in a cape and take you to the Monster Club, The Monster Club…
