We have always liked to champion new bands and upcoming talent here at Musicscramble, its why we started New Band Spotlight all those years ago. However it’s been a long time since we featured anyone in that New Band Spotlight category, but this week Leeds-based Sunspots came to my attention and I had to share them with you.
The band are a four piece indie/pop outfit who consist of friends, Tom, Joe and brothers Danny and Sam. They formed just last year (that’s 2015) and after a year of writing, rehearsing and a run of a few successful gigs toward the end of 2015 the band are making moves in 2016. Firstly they are releasing their debut track ‘I Know What You Don’t’ and plan to follow it up in just two weeks with their next release ‘How Do I Know’ before getting some promotional shows under their belt.
Both tracks – along with others – were recorded and produced by Mickey Dale (Embrace) over a week period during the Autumn of 2015, and they will be made available to stream via Spotify, Apple Music and Soundcloud from January the 28th.
You can connect with them on Facebook, and Soundcloud but not before you watch the video for ‘I Know What You Don’t’ below. This track has an infectious hurried rhythm which underpins the slight shoe-gaze guitar and classic indie vocal which work to great effect.
