New Colorama signing Sunzoom storms ahead with a melodic and dreamy new single inspired by an old beaten up book from a brica-brac shop in Liverpool
Sunzoom has been slowly making his presence known, gathering momentum over the whole lockdown period. Before recently signing to Andy Crofts’ (The Moons / Paul Weller) label Colorama Records Sunzoom had self-released a bunch of singles generating lots of buzz and ,new fans including famous actors such as Robert Carlyle who has been championing Sunzoom’s music ever since the first listen.
“I wrote this song a while ago after spending a bit too long in a fantastic antique/bric-a-brac shop in Liverpool called 69A. I went in to look through vinyl and books and I came across a really old battered copy literally called ‘the garden birds of India’ and flicked through it for ages. It was dark by the time I left the shop and I wrote the song that night trying to remember the descriptions of all the birds and probably adding my own invented ones in too”. Greg McVeigh (Sunzoom)
The song was recorded at Ark Studios and home recorded all by Greg himself except drums (Jake Leon Woodward) and slide guitar ( Geoff Sewell) . Sunzoom is the kind of artist that would sit nicely next to acts such as The Super Furry Animals and Beck with a strong sense of melody and unpredictable changes.
Sunzoom is the brainchild of Greg McVeigh. A psychedelic melody maker from Liverpool UK, a visual artist and pop/psych/guitar nut.. The band is named after his favourite Captain Beefheart track ‘Sun Zoom Spark’. During 2020 Sunzoom wrote and recorded over 20 new tracks which are being released one a month from December 2020. The culmination of the releases will be the first full album release in 2021.
