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) we set off on our 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 and finally Dave (bit of everything) after we realised they wrote too many parts to play live themselves. In 2018 we have been tirelessly writing, recording, and rehearsing.

Our 2nd Single 'We Were Kids' is inspired by the struggles that are synonymous with navigating your 20’s particularly in dealing with fading or souring friendships, finding the balance between priorities such as new careers and studies whilst attempting to maintain and hold onto the relationships that keep us grounded and solid. This is a feeling I'm sure will be relevant and familiar with many listeners out there. 'We Were Kids' is a slight shift from our debut single, it’s a little bit slower and focuses on soaring synths, punchy and gated drums, and sparkly guitars. However, it still proudly conforms to The Sunday Estate’s classic ‘Nostalgia Pop’ sound. We guarantee it will make you want to pick up the phone, and call that friend you haven't spoken to in a while. We recorded it again with the amazing Ryan K Brennan (Phantastic Ferniture, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard) and we hope you love it xx

The lyrics and songwriting painted a clear story in my mind. Very endearing. A great soundtrack for an indie film. I love the synthy dream pop sounds. It adds so much drama and again, nostalgia.
