What's in a name? Described elsewhere as "the precise synthesis of Led Zeppelin and Donna Summer," The Sunshine Underground are here and they've brought the summertime funk with them, albeit six months early. 'Commercial Breakdown' is only their second single, but promises to make them anything but underground.
Sounding as though they've never heard a Joy Division or Television LP, this Leeds four-piece have a penchant for fuzz pedals, extended solos and vocal histrionics. After a successful In The City and with patronage from everyone's favourite Kiwi DJ, this breezy, upbeat little number should cement their place as yet another Yorkshire success story.
More poppy, even, than the Kaisers and with considerable dancefloor filling potential, 'Commercial Breakdown' should soon be finding its way to a drive-time station near you.
