Peaceful Day by The Sulis Club
The Sulis Club are four likable looking young guys who are pretty busy on the local gig scene. That’s all I can really glean from their Facebook page; meanwhile Wiki says they formed in October 2013 and are “a Hong Kong four-piece indie rock band passionate about making music by using their own thoughts and musical spirits.” Fair enough. It adds that their music combines elements of Brit rock, Japanese rock, instrumental rock and pop-rock, influenced by Oasis, Jets, Ellegarden, Toe, Hiatus, The Killers and more. OK well I do hear some of that in their music, but I definitely sense a more US-driven rock sound along the lines of Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Green Day et al.
Overall this is a nice, modern sounding pop-rock album from some talented local guys. I think their sound is really good, if a little generic, and I’d definitely like to hear some songwriting development on the next CD. But where did that name come from?
