Interview: Sunset Sons who play Whelans on May 9th
Pete, The Bassist with Sunset Sons answered our Interview call!
1. Who are you? Sunset Sons! 2. Where are you based? We all live in a small coastal town, Hossegor, which is in the south west of France. They fly there direct from Dublin with Ryanair – drop by for a beer sometime!!! 3. What achievements do you want me to know about? Our new EP "The Fall Line" was released a few days back reached number one on the iTunes rock chart and number 16 in the overall iTunes charts which is amazing. We were in the van and watched go all the way to number one as we drove to Newcastle! 4. What are you up to now? We are currently on tour in the UK, driving from St Ives to Bournemouth. Should’ve been a nice, easy four hours but things being as they are, roadworks set us back an hour so we've gotta cane it to get there in time. STANDARD! Just enough time to splash a bit of water on our faces, have a rum and coke and bounce on stage. But in more general terms, we are on tour supporting the EP release. 5. Name something unique about you or/and your product? Good tunes spawned from three Brits and one Aussie in the south west of France. That’s unique I reckon. 6. What is the best song ever written? Pretty heavy question. Jed says Born to Run by The Boss but it would be a close call between that, Bohemian Rhapsody or Stairway to Heaven for me. 7. What's the best album ever made? Ooooohhhh...hmmmm...Thriller by MJ…Sergeant Peppers....?? Jed says Born to Run by the Boss again – we keep telling him that’s not the answer to everything and all he could say in return was, "IT'S BORN TO RUN BY THE BOSS!!!!"
8. What are your future plans? We have just finished recording our debut album in Nashville which comes out in September. Until then, we are going to be touring in the UK, Europe and a bit in the US: fun times ON THE ROAD! 9. Where can I spend money on you or your product? iTunes http://apple.co/1MF0K2U and go tosunsetsons.comand check out our merch…or you can come to the show and spend money on Guinness with us at Whelans in Dublin on 9 May! 10. Last one, ...... Make Us Laugh What’s blue and white and would kill you if it fell on your head……a fridge wearing a denim jacket! https://www.facebook.com/SunsetSons
