Single by Sunday go back to the fun and innocent times of childhood with their new video for Hey Boy!
Hey Boy! – follows the story of a friend who was once considered to be the life and soul of the party but has now lost that spark. Is growing older really such a crime or is it just a number?
The colourful Glasgow pop-rockers, comprising Josh Ladds (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Jonny Eakins (lead guitar, backing vocals), Jack Black, (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Simon Drummond (drums) commented on the video:
“The premise of the song is that Josh was once ‘fun’ and ‘the life and soul of the party’ but then he got old/responsible and lost it. We wanted to try and capture that by comparing a young (growing up) Josh with the now more stayed version of himself.
The video features 10-year-old Logan, and only has very small cameo appearances from the rest of the band; Jonny, Jack, and Simon. It also features a cleverly placed micro clip of their next single (Give It to Me Now). It was directed by Darren Girvan.
This release comes ahead of live 2021 UK tour dates. The band can’t wait to get back on stage.
Live dates (with more to be announced)
London: New Cross Inn – 5th September
Glasgow: The Classic Grand – 18th September
Manchester: Aatma – 29th October.
The band formed in 2015, and cite early Blink 182, My Chemical Romance, 5 Seconds of Summer, and The 1975 as some of their influences.
Raucous guitars, vocal melodies, fun, and tons of energy are all prerequisites at ‘Single by Sunday’ live shows. With a millennial brashness and a swagger all of their own, they pay homage to some of the mid-eighties Pop Punk bands.
Having opened the prestigious Scottish Music Awards, they have also headlined the Boston MA ‘First Night’ celebrations (at the request of NBC10 Boston) to a staggering 50k+ people. They also played Vans Warp tour in Buffalo NY alongside Sum 41 and The Story So Far etc.
