an infusion of
reminiscent of the great
music of the 60s, multi-
cultural Sunny Day Sets
Fire release their
superb single, End Of The Road...
DREAMY VOCALS breaking into delightful harmonies that melt the hardest heart
that's Sunny Day Sets Fire; giving it all they've
got on their great new single, End Of The Road, their first
double-A side single together with a second track, Lack Of View, taken
off the band's hotly-tipped debut album Summer Palace.
End Of The Road marks the beginning of a musical adventure for Sunny
Day Sets Fire the name came from an internet band name generator and
somehow suits their sound! And the band looks set to sizzle as it serves up
a tasty blend of lush, richly-textured, epic, psychedelic, sunshine pop this
Spring; kick-starting the Sixties' Psych Pop Revival.
Based in East London, the band is
a veritable United Nations. Sunny Day Sets Fire has five members hailing from
four different countries and the band already has two singles and
an EP under its belt a two year presence leading up to one very anticipated
Multi-instrumentalists Mauro and Onyee met while working as ushers at a London
repertoire cinema. Sharing a vision of theatre, art and music, it was inevitable
that they'd get something good cooking. When Mauro began writing a collection
of ambitious sunshine psych songs, mutual friend Max was asked to join the group.
The founding members of Sunny Day Sets Fire began experimenting with every possible

During the next two years Mauro, Onyee and Max released a succession of singles
across Europe, the US and Australia and were joined by Ed (bass) and Matthew
(drums). The five hail from Italy, Hong Kong, Sardinia, England and Canada but
have put down roots
in East London, from where they worked on Summer Palace their
debut album throughout 2007.
With shades of Sixties freedom and Gypsy guitars, Sunny Day Sets Fire can't
be ignored. It isn't often a track strikes such a chord, but End Of The Road
has hit just the right spot. Groovy, Baby.
The band will be touring throughout Europe and the US in 2008, supporting the
release of Summer Palace, the upcoming singles and their Stranger
(another track from the album) remix EP featuring remixes by the likes of CSS,
Diplo, XXXCHANGE (Spank Rock) and the Cool Kids.
As the publicity machine says, it's enough to make you burn your passport and
declare yourself a converted citizen of the world. Aren't we all?
End Of The Road will be released
on Brikabrak Records on 14 April (2008).
