Album Review: The Sunshine Delay - Keep It Together (Wrong Train Records)
It's been a while since Edinburgh-based The Sunshine Delay released their debut album OUTRAGEOUS EXPECTATIONS (2004), which introduced the band to a wider audience with their country-inflected roots music. Although Paula McNally's name has changed (to McKee), nothing much has changed about her distinctive voice. With Paula on acoustic guitar, husband David on bass and vocals, Iain Barbour on guitar and Brendan O'Brien on drums, The Sunshine Delay have kept it very much together over the last ten years and this long awaited follow up album delivers eleven new songs in timely fashion.
Recorded at The Depot in Edniburgh with Gerry Boyle at the helm, KEEP IT TOGETHER moves effortlessly between Scots Americana and indie pop, with easily accessible melodies and tight harmonies. King of the Small Town even verges on nineties grunge almost breaking into Smells Like Teen Spirit at one point. With contributions from George Stott providing additional guitar and mandolin and Ali Petrie on keyboards, The Sunshine Delay bring a little sunshine to these dreary November evenings.
