It's not often that an album is released without having played any gigs, but No One Sun have done just that! Back in 2011 Nick Noone and Jamie Hewson met in a practice room in Manchester. They hit it off and, both having done some songwriting found that they worked well as a team. Whilst gigging in covers bands they worked hard on putting together an album and the result is 'All We Rely On Is Stolen'. In order to bring the album to a live audience they called on the services of drummer Craig Warburton, bass player Nick Moulden and guitarist Gary Falkener to complete the line-up.
The 11 track album is a well crafted slice of Indie Alt/Pop which doesn't rely on the obvious infusing of their influences, but is a collection of original sounding, anthemic, guitar driven tracks that would grace any festival stage and guaranteed to bring them a solid fanbase and regular airplay. The lead track 'California' is a classic example. Driving drums into choppy guitar and a gritty vocal No One Sun have ticked all the Indie boxes.
As the pictures attest No One Sun have since played some gigs including Manchester's Dry Bar and there's more to come. So some lucky people have been treated to one of the highlights of the album 'You've Changed Your Mind Again'.
Again I'm pleased to say it doesn't lean on any established band for it's influences. The guitar's infectious and the chorus will stick in your head, all ready to shout out at your first No One Sun gig. They've carved out their own niche and we'll be hearing a lot more from the highly focused No One Sun soon. The album and individual tracks are available now on Bandcamp or iTunes. It'll be one of the best £7.99's you've spent all year!
