The members of Sunday Kids can’t exactly be called kids anymore, as the Amsterdam based foursome is amply adorned with beards, tattoos and chest hair. Exactly what one would expect from a band that is inspired by American sixties and seventies rock tradition, but has also been influenced by the swampy blues rock produced by the likes of The Black Keys, Kings of Leon and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Raw, soulful music, played by men in lumberjack shirts, with callused fingers and sweat on their brow.
No horsing around… Let’s make some music! That’s how men roll in the northern parts of Holland, where the roots of their friendship grew, years before forming Sunday Kids in Amsterdam.
The four friends are no strangers to the beauty of jumping in a van and rocking the shit out of a venue whilst quenching their thirst with a good amount of beer. As a matter of fact, this has been their weekly routine since their inception in 2013.
They have achieved a great deal in those two years: A tour through England, playing the infamous Camden Barfly in London, their music placed in an Ajax commercial, support slots for Lucinda Williams (Paradiso), Beth Hart (HMH), one of the most booked bands in Popronde 2014, a musical appearance in the prime time TV show ‘De Wereld Draait Door’ and playing over 50 headline shows. And let’s not forget the release of their debut album ‘Twang Wolf Sessions’ which came out in 2013. It got great reviews; common denominator in the praise being the way Sunday Kids have put their own spin on Americana genres such as blues, country, surf and rock.
