Rising indie Stockport five-piece Fuzzy Sun have been tipped by nearly every blog and radio station out there as this year’s one to watch. The band have recently announced their debut headline tour of the UK and will be stopping off at Think Tank?, Newcastle on Friday 17th May. We had a quick chat with them to discuss their successful year, where their name comes from and how saving the world brought them all together.

Where did the name Fuzzy Sun come from?
The name comes from a wonderful EP called Halfway To A Threeway, by the fantastic Jim O’Rourke. As soon as I heard it I thought, that would be a great band name, and it really fit with the vibe of the music.

How did the band get together?
Funnily enough we all heard about a great evil that was insistent on the destruction of the world, so one summer 9 people were summoned to a secret, magical location, and it was there where the five of us first met. We were instructed to destroy a ring in order to save the world, once we had completed the task we all tried our hand at different things, some successful, some not. That aside we always stayed in touch, and many years later we thought it was the right time to start a band.

Describe your sound.
Classic pop hooks, chorus drenched guitars, soul-infused rhythms. Just good pop music. Most of the time I find it more interesting to have other people describe our music, as they sometimes hear things that we don’t, which is mint!

What can audiences expect from your live show?
Hip thrusts, hair, and a whole lotta love.

What does the future have in store for you?
Our first headline UK tour! Starting on the 14th May, ending with Neighborhood Festival. We are also playing some great gigs over summer: Edgely Park with Blossoms, Community Festival with The Kooks, Castlefield Bowl with The Wombats. Beyond that, more releases and getting to play our music as often and too as many people as we can.
