A happy accident; the result of a 24-hour argument about what
constitutes the perfect pop song, Sunless '97, currently residing in
London, operate in a domain of their own design. Consisting of members
Edward, Alice and Matthew, their
the all-embracing diversity of Sunless '97's influences. From ESG to
Bonnie Dobson, Robert Wyatt to Suicide, Broadcast to The Bhundu Boys,
their well-received mix tapes are testament to their musical appetite.
Their own music sways between past and present with a modern, genre defying, progressiveness.
Having teamed up with producer extraordinaire Kwes (Warp Records) to record their debut 'Making Waves', Sunless '97 have created an EP that masterfully sails around a lush cinematic landscape of rapturous synths and galloping tribal drums; thoughtfully interwoven male/female harmonies are underpinned by thermal, effervescent grooves. Their songs are expressionistic, evoking particular moods and atmospheres. They have an underlying melancholy, set against currents of a pure hope and optimism.
Sunless '97 are involved in every aspect of their output and immerse themselves, and whoever joins them, in a 360 degree creative project, centered around the music they make and collaborations they take part in.
Sunless '97 are releasing their debut 'Making Waves' E.P. on limited edition 12" vinyl and digitally, through Abeano Music on November 21st 2011.
