As accolades go… being voted ‘Best Emerging International Artist’ at Toronto’s Indie Week 2017, is not a bad one to have! Single By Sunday spent most of 2017 building their fan base, working on their sound and ultimately honing their live performance. Not wishing to be pigeonholed, as ‘just another pop band’ they are defining their own genre; melodic pop punk, fuelled with their usual catchy hooks, lead riffs and fun filled live energy that makes them a draw at any show.
The band began 2017 with a headline show on the mainstage at the O2 ABC in Glasgow, this was followed by a respectable 16 festival appearances, including, Carfest North & South, Belladrum, Camden Rocks and Sunflower Fest (Northern Ireland) to name a few. A total of 40 live shows throughout the year has meant countless hours on the road going from one end of the country to the other in an effort to widen their fan base and prove that they are prepared to put in the work.
