Track taken from the “Cherryade Christmas Compilation CD Volume 13“.
The Sunbathers splashed onto the scene in 2012 with a cdep and 7″ on the sorely-missed Dufflecoat label, and immediately impressed us with their gentle and hushed seaside-themed tweepop in the style of the Marine Girls. The duo have mostly been silent ever since, but we’re now proud to present their debut full-length album, titled “A Weekend Away With…“. Like their earlier works, this has a very strong Marine Girls vibe to it, complete with beach sounds and minimal hand percussion accompaniment to the gently strummed guitars. Side note: Julie’s voice sounded very familiar to me when I first heard the band, but it wasn’t until much later that I found out that she was actually the singer of Confetti (who released some wonderful 7″s on Sunday, Heaven and Marineville in the ’90s)!
