North London’s Sorry have today revealed new track & video ‘As The Sun Sets’ – the final preview of their heavily-anticipated debut record 925, out this Friday 27 March via Domino.
The band have also shared news that their upcoming U.K. headline tour, which was due to culminate with a hometown show at London’s Village Underground on 7 May, has sadly been postponed in light of the current global health crisis. Tickets will remain valid for the shows Sorry are currently rescheduling and the band are excited to share the new dates in April.
‘As The Sun Sets’ comes accompanied by more feverish visuals directed by Flasha aka Sorry’s Asha Lorenz and collaborator Flo Webb, and produced by Poppy Ashton. ‘As The Sun Sets’ along with ‘Right Round The Clock’ (A Listed by BBC Radio 6 Music in late 2019), latest single ‘More’ (currently on the playlist at 6 Music), and recent track & video ‘Snakes’ all feature on the band’s thrilling and hotly-tipped debut album 925. The record has already received glowing reviews from Mojo, Loud And Quiet, DIY & Dork, while Sorry have also been profiled in recent weeks everywhere from The Guardian Guide to The FADER.
Together with co-producer James Dring (Gorillaz, Jamie T, Nilüfer Yanya), Lorenz and best friend and co-conspirator in Sorry Louis O’Bryen have woven 925 like a dreamscape in which idyllic and hellish scenes intermingle, forcing the question of what is real and what is make believe. Inspired by everything from Hermann Hesse to (Sandy) Alex G and old-school crooner Tony Bennett, their experimental and holistic approach marks them out as a thoroughly 21st century band; from their open-minded approach to genre to their creativity allowing them to self-produce the music and direct accompanying videos.
Joined by drummer Lincoln Barrett, multi-instrumentalist Campbell Baum, and new member Marco Pini on electronics, 5-piece Sorry emerged from a thriving scene of bands in London, and though 925 is their debut album, it is by no means their first statement. It follows a series of mixtapes, released sporadically and used as a way to experiment with the disparate influences and sounds that give 925 its distinctively modern and apocalyptic sound.
Where previous singles and mixtapes earned the band their status as one of the most vital and relentlessly creative new British bands of the moment, 925 is a record which will undoubtedly cement their status as true originals and cross-genre innovators in 2020 and beyond.
