The Suncharms are gearing up for a very busy 2020

Formed in 1990 the band supported indie pop legends such as The Brilliant Corners, St Christopher, The Orchids and The Television Personalities plus gigs with emerging Shoegaze bands such as Cranes, Catherine Wheel and Curve which brought the attention of Wilde Club records.

By June 1991 the first EP ”Sparkle” was released.
In November 1991 the second EP “Tranquil Day” was released which then led to a Peel session in April 1992.

The Suncharms are gearing up for a busy 2020

Slumberland Records first approached the band about the possibility of releasing something way back in 1992 but sadly a release never materialised.

In April 1993 The Suncharms played the last gig of their initial phase.

In 2014 Cloudberry Records contacted and made plans to release a retrospective compilation CD of the two EPs plus assorted demos and previously unreleased songs.

In 2015 the band reunited to start collecting old recordings and assorted memorabilia to make the CD and booklet.

In March 2016 Cloudberry released the CD in the U.S. / UK and Japan.

As a result of all this renewed activity the band received increased exposure through BBC Radio 6 Music and decided to get back together.

The band have been busy working on new songs and the first fruits of their practices and recording sessions are the two songs which the very same Slumberland Records have released – after all this time!

The band’s new album is expected out in 2020
