Just in time for Summer, Sydney’s aptly named guitar pop band Sunscreen today released a live performance of their hit track ‘Voices’ inside a sauna as part of the new music series from Rekorderlig
“I got vivid flashbacks to playing some of our sweatiest gigs,” says Levingston, the band’s drummer, of the sauna performance.
Sunscreen have gone on to establish themselves as a band to watch with their debut EP Just A Drop in 2017, of which Voices was a stand out track. Currently, the quartet are working on songs that will likely materialize as a new EP. “We’ve been working on new songs for a long time, some of them have been around for a year and a half, some we wrote last month. We’ll write a new song and kind of test it by playing it live. Way more collaborative than it used to be. Our bass player Ollie has brought a new energy to the band. A lot of our stuff is faster than it used to be” lead singer and guitarist Skyes explains.
Rekorderlig Sauna Sounds is a new platform that supports some of Australia’s brightest new music talent, in a uniquely Swedish way. There’s arguably nothing more synonymous with Sweden than a sauna, and Rekorderlig Sauna Sounds is all about celebrating and amplifying Aussie music stars on the rise – Swedish style!
Over a six week period, six emerging Australian artists recorded one of their new tracks in a sauna, which was released as content with the aim to help these artists reach new audiences. Kicking off the program was hip hop artist B Wise, followed by Nick Nuisance and The Delinquents, Clypso, Spike Vincent, Milan Ring, and finally Sunscreen to round out the series.
As a Swedish cider, Rekorderlig comes from a nation with a rich music history. Since launching in Australia in 2010, Rekorderlig has had a presence within the Australian music scene and Rekorderlig Sauna Sounds is phase one of a new multi year music program.
