“A twin guitar assault that’s very reminiscent of early Strokes”
NME Feb 2015
Yes Sunshine originally formed in spring 2013 to commemorate the passing of a close friend, but the five piece went from strength to strength, officially hitting the scene in May 2013 with their intriguing blend of indie, rock, and punk influences.
Throughout 2013 the group toured the UK and Ireland extensively, taking in gigs in notable venues such as The Dublin Castle and The Shed along with a headline show at The 100 Club, an appearance at Manchester’s Ethihad Stadium and two packed out shows at The Great Escape Festival.
Support slots have seen the band playing with Pete Doherty, Royal Blood, Zane Lowe, Yuck, The Enemy and The View.
The band released their first single in January 2014, and with it came airplay from BBC Radio 1, XFM, and Amazing Radio as well as a feature in the NME. Stations across the world picked up on the track meaning it reached seventeen different countries.
The release of ‘No No No’ follows BBC Introducing selecting Yes Sunshine as band of the month for Feb 2015.
