SUNFACE is the solo project of Daniel Longmore, from the band Trash, and he has returned with his latest release, courtesy of Clue Records, following up from last year’s acclaimed debut EP.
The EP kicks off with lead single Stay Happy, a delightful tune that swoons along beautifully as well as being more than ably aided by the sumptuous tones of Abby Bettz. The jangly guitars of I’m Not Always Sad sees Longmore really wear his heart on his sleeve and shows that less is sometimes more in terms of words on this fine track. Melt does exactly what it says on the tin and gives you a feeling of melting away whilst listening to this dreamy, indie pop number.
Longmore says ‘Silver Lining is about fancying the fuck out of somebody’ which does seem to be the perfect description of yet another piece of mastery from this accomplished singer/songwriter. The lo-fi recording of this EP really does add to its charm and can be heard on the wonderfully introspective Two Things that draw this thoroughly enjoyable record to a close.
