High Wycombe five-piece, Only Sun are an indie rock band who are brimming with vibrancy and, like all of us, love to jump around the stage until they are dripping with sweat. They’re also very prolific songwriters and released a single a month in 2018 and in the first half of 2019 have released the rather excellent singles, Vice and It’ll Be Alright. They’ve not done too bad on the live front either, having supported the likes of Marsicans and Abbie McCarthy, performed at this year’s Liverpool Sound City and have announced a UK tour in October and November. On top of all that success, they’ve been announced for this year’s Twisterella festival in Middlesbrough on Saturday 12th October and in the run-up to the festival, they’re going to share with us their bunch of fives on the top 5 ways to apologise. Awwwwwwww…

Being sorry is just part of being human, and none of us are strangers to the apology. We, at Only Sun, often find ourselves having to apologise for a multitude of reasons: terrible jokes, annoying energy and for generally playing live. So, if you’re looking for a new way to show you’re sorry, here are our 5 Top Ways to Apologise:

1. With A Cake
In this age of instant messages and even more instant gratification, nothing says “I’m truly sorry” more than rolling your sleeves up and breaking out the baking. Forgot about our plans to go to the cinema? Victoria sponge. It’s not you, it’s me? Banana bread. Lost your pet hamster I was meant to be looking after whilst you were on holiday? Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. There’s a cake for every heartbreak.

2. Bathtub of tears
Force yourself to cry so much that you can fill their bathtub with tears to show how upset you are with your choices. Optional flowers, candles and bubble bath to be added for extra sucking up.

3. Buy flowers that smell of sorry.
There is a unique smell that comes with an apology, it’s a mixture of depression and, well, something not so pleasant. They will be so disgusted with the lingering scent that they’ll forgive you just to get rid of the bloody things.

4. Cook their whole extend family a delicious and nutritious meal.
Under extreme circumstances, it’s time to drag the family in. They can’t possibly be mad at you around their family. Get them to love you and that’s it, when your other half complains about how wrong you are, they’ll never believe them.

5. Do something worse.
The only way to avoid apologising for something is by doing something so much worse, they’ll forget you even did the other thing. Problem solved.
