Sundown Delay - You're in Love with Yesterday #Flyah Review


The original idea of Sundown Delay was to create a final platform (since his former band dissolved) from where Svante Widerström could throw the 10 songs he writes every year into the great nothingness. A one-man band would not only have non-exist issues with drop out members. It would also mean total creative control. But it would also mean no fun. So when old friend Nanne Westerholm offered his service from behind the drums Svante of course was happy. Together they recorded "Catching Up With The Future" 2015. But as a duo they weren't able to play live. To be considered as a band they needed at lest a bass-player.

They found the missing piece in Björn Ericsson and recorded the mini LP "Rubik's Cube Is Fighting Back" which was released in april 2016. The record was critically acclaimed but since drummer Nanne Westerholm left the band in june same year there wasn't too much action.

The replacement was called Tobias Wiik and after playing a few gigs they started to work on new music. The new full-length album "Awaiting The Death Of Rock'nroll" was released in December 2017.

Sundown Delay are back with a new album "Awaiting the Death of Rockn'roll". Ten songs where rock-hard NWOBHM, punk and pub rock as well as clever psychedelia and pop are woven into a sound as individual as unique.
Sundown Delay are based in Alingsås, a dull and sleepy town located about forty-five minutes northeast of Gothenburg, which is otherwise best known as the home of the man who introduced the potato to Sweden, and because the poet Karin Boye went there to commit suicide. Alingsås is also known nationally as the area that can proudly claim the highest number of burnt out medical and care workers on long-term sick leave.
Only a chosen few people in Alingsås know about Sundown Delay. This is despite the fact that their 2015 debut "Catching up with the future" and 2016's critically acclaimed miniLP "Rubik's Cube is Fighting Back" were both crystal clear proof that the bands songwriter Svante Widerström has found an exceptionally good sounding musical recipe.
On "Awaiting the Death of Rockn'roll" the band are even more uncomromising than ever.
The opening track "You're in Love With Yesterday" takes an inexorable grip on the listener and on "Emotional Waste" Sundown Delay sound like high octane pub rock à la Dr. Feelgood mixed with early metal acts in the style of Saxon and Diamond Head. The result is murderously hard. On "In the Valley" the tempo drops but the inensity certainly doesn't. Slide guitars and vocals recorded through a Lesley speaker create an air of psychedelia. "Zeb Macahan" sounds like The Electric Prunes transported to the early eighties metal scene.

CHECK OUT GEM - FLYAH EXLUSIVE INTERVIEW

GEM is to headline the Los Angeles Power Women Summit in December, bringing this new style of medical-music to the masses. She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system. Buddhists believe that by listening to music in this key, corresponding to the crown chakra, it can heal and awaken the listener, helping to release stored negative energy and energetic blockages in the body. WE HAD THE CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH GEM READ WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY!   How long have you been doing music and where you find the inspiration? Music has always been a part of my life, although being visible in the producers chair has been a natural progression over the past 4 ye

Sam Hankins was born to shine! Jazz Musician with a supreme Sound!

We were able to talk to a very talented musician by the name Sam Hankins.  His jazz music is full of soul, with inspiration that can light the path for fans and fellow musicians. Read the details about his journey below!   Interview Questions So when did you become a musician, and would you say it was the ideal path to take? Because I was born into a musical family, becoming a musician was not something I even thought about. It is in my blood. I knew I wanted to make music my career at the early age of 5 years old. I know that being a professional trumpeter and school band director is my calling.   Who are the jazz influences that inspired you? You know, I started off with singing & playing the guitar, but then I saw Louis Armstrong playing the trumpet & that decided it for me. When I spoke to my mom, she said that my uncle had an old trumpet that he used to play and once I had cleaned it out, my fate was sealed. Some of the other jazz influencers were Freddie Hubbard, Miles Da

Michael Coleman Is back with another Anthem!

  WE HAD A CHANCE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL COLEMAN, READ WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY!   Michael Coleman, where are you from and what's it like in your hometown and how did you get the nickname "The Metropolitan Cowboy"?   I was actually born and raised in San Diego, California.  San Diego is just an awesome town although like everywhere else in California, it costs a fortune to live there.  My nickname, “The Metropolitan Cowboy” actually comes from a television project I was doing a few year’s back. I wrote and produced an adult-oriented sketch comedy show and since I was always dressed with a cowboy hat on and looked metrosexual we decided that should be the name of the show and my brand and I have been called that ever since.   How long have you been songwriting and where do you find the inspiration?   I’ve been writing since I was a kid, however I didn’t decide to take it seriously until I had a milestone birthday , I won’t tell you which one and it wa
