Would You is the first single proper taken from Sunturns' new album Christmas II. Written by Einar Stray [Moddi, Einar Stray Orchestra], it's a reflective look back at those teenage emotions swelling and brooding as the clocks go back, the nights draw in and the isolation of winter descends.
Would You appears on the second album from Sunturns - an album I was desperate to make happen, having absolutely adored their debut record "Christmas" from a few years back. They're a band that don't get together very often (one of the hardships that occurs as a result of forming a band devoted to Christmas, those summer festival tours are bloody hard to come by!), and having worked with Ola and Jorgen as part of Making Marks previously, we're slowly plugged away, planting the seeds of suggestion of making a second album until that that email arrived at Fika HQ: "Hey Tom, we're thinking of recording a second Sunturns record, are you in?". It was just like Christmas.
So yeah, we're chuffed this album is happening - and it'll be a real beauty. Two 12" records, one on red vinyl and one on white vinyl, in a gatefold sleeve, encompassing 2011's album Christmas on vinyl for the very first time and 2015's Christmas II. If you prefer your Christmas music a little bit melancholic, a little bit jaded, and really rather gorgeous, then I'm sure you'll love these records as much as I do.
