There Goes Sunday are a four-piece. Two members on guitar, one bass, one drums. Sounds pretty standard, and it is. But what sets There Goes Sunday apart from other up-and-coming bands is that their songs are actually pretty damn good. Take their newest single, The Road, for example.
From the start of the song, you're hit with an excellent lesson on how to make an intro to a song. Building up to the main riff, the songcraft of these four guys is evident. I'm finding it very hard to compare this band to anything I've heard before, as they take all their influences and mash them together and it works very well.
At times, the vocalist spits with attitude like Sid Vicious, and the next moment is harmonising with the other vocalist. The guitar work is excellent, and all this is underpinned by a storming rhythm section, which is not ignored - every instrument gets its chance to shine, the bass especially prevalent in, strangely, the leadup to the guitar solo. Throughout the drums are pounding away, and if you take the time to listen to the song a few times you'll see just how much work has gone into writing this song; every instrumentalist is well-polished and performs very well.
The Road was released on the 6th of May, and can be streamed below. Visit There Goes Sunday on Facebook here.
