Sunday Arches |
The four schoolmates from Colchester spent long summer holidays thrashing out their late teenage masterpieces in parents’ living rooms. School finished, different paths were followed, different towns became home and the band became little more than a precious gem of nostalgia.
Fast forward a decade or so, Ben, Michael, Dominic and Samuel met up under a railway arch in south London and set to work on new songs and formed the band you hear today. The deep rooted musical chemistry makes for a tight yet big sound. Using melody as the anchor, the self-exploratory lyrics run while the music meanders between snappy indie hooks and explosive hard rock. Sunday Arches offer a sonic spectrum while keeping one eye on the pop ideals.
Boro born and London based, wedowee are Dom, Liam, Natty and Paul, and do the sort of MOR rock stuff that their mams in Boro can say is “great” and their pals in London can say is “sick or “fire”.
Written over the course of about a year, and while two of the band read the Harry Potter series for the first time; their debut EP is being released one song at a time, through DIY superlabel, Spooker Rekkids (Belly of Paris, Dressed Like Wolves, By Toutatis).
