Bio

The Sunday Estate “formed” in 2018 so that singer/guitarist Conor O’Reilly and drummer Sven Andrlon could live up to a recurring brag at their job at Topshop that they were going to be musicians. At the time, the most they had to go off was a promise that Sven could play a Green Day song on drums and a handful of songs that Conor had been writing at home.

That was not going to stop them, though, so they took to fleshing out the rest of the line-up by asking Tom Flynn, a long time friend of Conor’s girlfriend, to play guitar, and recruited primary-school friend Finn Potter to play bass via an instagram story. Finn had never touched a bass guitar and Tom didn’t own a proper guitar amp, but all were avid fans of similar music so a few influences quickly stuck: 80’s post-punk and pop, 2000’s indie “revival”, and contemporaries like The National and The 1975.

After a strong 2019 releasing their first three songs 'I Don't Want To Be Alone' 'We Were Kids' And 'Let's Stop Pretending' 2020 is set to be so much bigger and so much better. They now return with their first release of 2020 with Give Me (Something).

David Stano (guitar & synth) says of the song “this is the fourth song we are releasing and probably our most minimal, meaning we really tried hard to make sure all the elements in it and performances were as strong as possible. Personally it’s my favourite song we’ve done in terms of the way our roles/instruments come together. I also think it’s really really pretty melodically and is always a favourite live! Conor’s lyrics are a really great take on relationships and how no matter how much you might fight with someone, whether they be a partner, friend or family member, they always "give you something" that makes you want to keep them around.

If it weren't for self-isolation this song would've sent me immediately out for an extended roadtrip. Wind-in-your-hair vibes over here.

It's a tasty indie rock serving to be sure, but I like that The Sunday Estate are adding that extra twist of cracked pepper to this mix to make it that extra bit snappy and different.
