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.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around
