We’re putting the spotlight on the hottest and most exciting new bands around with our Introducing feature, ready to highlight the artists with the biggest potential to make an impact on their scene.
Bordeaux newcomers The Sunday Sadness describe themselves as Dark Pop but they take a different turn without the courtesy of even giving us a heads up. The genre-bending band vary from cinematic synth-wave to rap and emo. Their self-titled EP is dropping on February 15th and singer Matthieu Kirby describes it as “a collection of seven sad songs that depict the fate of someone that lost it all. Ambition, love, relationships, and especially the will to connect with a modern society that failed us.” Keep your ears peeled…

WHAT THE BAND SAY:
DP!: How would you describe yourselves to someone who has never heard The Sunday Sadness before?
The Sunday Sadness: The Sunday Sadness is an electro-pop band that perfectly soundtrack any late night drive. Filled with nostalgia and melancholy, our music is mixing synthwave with emo vibes and many other modern music styles.
DP!: How did the band form?
TSS: John and I met via Facebook around 2016. Although we lived far from each other we really wanted to make music together so we managed to start writing despite the distance. Chris and Matt were good friends of mine and it was pretty natural to get them to join the band. When we had enough materials we finally met and started to seriously get involved in the project.
DP!: What plans do you have for the future?
TSS: We’re going to release our first EP on the 15 of February, and it will come with a new music video. We also already started working on our first full length and hopefully we’ll finish producing it before this summer.
DP!: Which new bands are you listening to right now?
TSS: We mainly listen to Pale Waves, Cherry Pools, Swimming Girls.
DP!: Which bands do you aspire to and why?
TSS: The 1975 because of their ability to write such awesome and meaningful songs while evolving in many different music styles. They literally are ahead of their time and are showing the way.
DP!: What’s the stand out moment in your career so far?
TSS: The release of the music video for Someone. It was the song and the music video we put the most work in and the response from our fans was definitely outstanding.
