Sunshine Social - Mainstage, Saturday
Sunshine Social is a collective of multi-instrumentalists from Glasgow, offering a melting pot of atmospheric indie pop and folk-rock. This young six-piece fuse the intimacy and immediacy of an open mic performance with the presence and riotousness of a festival gig. They merge and layer a wide range of genre-crossing influences from Arcade Fire to Bombay Bicycle Club; from Flaming Lips to Grizzly Bear.
Sunshine Social have amassed a loyal and passionate fan base over many years of playing and are known in Glasgow for their stage-filling, multi-layered sound as well as their dynamic live shows. They combine autobiographical and introspective lyricism with accessible, foot-stomping tunes, resulting in a release of noise, dancing and huge tribal drum finales.
Having previously sold out King Tuts and packed out the T Break Tent Sunshine Social already have a healthy following. The band released their most recent E.P. “The Brace” in early December, with the L.P. itself set to be released in spring 2015.
