About

Scotland’s finest alt-country roots rockers”      Americana UK

“A band that deserves to go far in the unpredictable world of music” Maverick magazine

“Power chords, glorious harmonies and sublime guitar interludes all feature in a jangled power pop song that proclaims, ‘We’re back!’” Blabber ‘n’ Smoke

Since 2001, The Sunshine Delay have been winning admirers throughout the UK and the USA for their “mellifluous melodies and country harmonies resting on power pop” Get Ready to Rock, and a style that blends the best elements of country, roots and power pop.

KEEP IT TOGETHER is their much-anticipated second album: “These are songs of life and love, written with a canny eye for what works in a live set” Flying Shoes

“Heartfelt, second album from Scottish roots rockers bristles with hooks and melodies. From the anthemic opener Last Generation to Die, to the acoustic folk influenced closer The Angels’ Share this is a superb set of really strong and memorable songs” Electric Ghost

“Catchy pop hooks and muscular playing mark them as a band that could ride the airwaves easily and at times there are whiffs of bands such as REM, The Jayhawks and Lone Justice” Blabber ‘n’ Smoke

Based in Edinburgh and big on the Scottish Americana scene, impressive supports have included opening for Dave Alvin, Chuck Prophet, Allison Moorer and Robbie Fulks. They’ve also played as backing band for the likes of Jason Ringenberg (from The Scorchers), Dolly Varden, Amy Rigby and Mike Ferrio’s Tandy.

Over the years the foursome have chalked up two successful USA summer tours, as well gigging intensively around the UK to appreciative audiences, building a loyal fan base.
