Bio

When Sven (Drums) and Conor (Vox/Guitar) first met in late 2017 they joked about starting a band. As Sven continued to smash out Green Day covers they slowly realised this joke could become a reality. Shortly after recruiting Tom (guitars) they set off on their first rehearsal. It is safe to say they have come a very long long way since then, even as far as recruiting an old friend Finn (bass) via Instagram Story, finally Dave who is the most talented and plays just about any instrument was recruited as their do it all guy after they realised they wrote way too many parts to play live themselves.

Written just right after vocalist & guitarist Conor O’Reilly finished watching Netflix’s cult teen rom-com, ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’, The Sunday Estate's 3rd single ‘Let’s Stop Pretending’ follows the all too familiar narrative of two friends who are both madly in love with each other but ignore their feelings to preserve their friendship.

The song came together quickly, mimicking the chaotic, nervous energy one might feel while falling for a best friend. Recorded in one blistering take at A Sharp Studios in
Riverwood, with finishing touches added at producer and mixer Ryan K Brennan’s house the following day, ‘Let’s Stop Pretending’ is a taste of great things to come from The Sunday Estate.

Speedy and loose - a combo that suits this band nicely.

Not an ounce if fat to be found here, just the bare essentials to make a fun little rocknroll record.
