"Celebrate the Sun – “Celebrate the Sun”"

Formed in Liverpool, England, this Swedish band defies genres. They have plenty of catchy hooks and nice vocal harmonies. Having been promoting their band with tours in Sweden and Denmark, Celebrate the Sun is a great indie rock band who knows what it means to be pop without all the bells and whistles. While the band might only boast four members, their songs sounds strong enough to have been the result of a grand standing orchestra. Check ‘em out - smother.net


"Celebrate the Sun"

Judging from the artwork, these dudes aspire to be the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but the music is much more inspired by 60s psyche-rock. They've got tons of classic vocal harmonies and that's their biggest strength. Think Crosby, Stills and Nash or The Eagles crossed with Nirvana or something like that. There's definite mainstream appeal, but enough twists and turns to make it interesting. It's still not the sort of thing I'd normally listen to, but I'm impressed. They've got a ton of potential, they just need to tighten up the production a bit. If the album was just a tad shorter and a bit more cohesive, it would kick ass.

"Beautiful Evocative 60s.."

A review of the song "A waste in vain"

Gorgeous acoustic song reminiscent in spirit/sound of Crowded House at their very best,Liverpool band The Coral and evocative easy listening psych pop like 60s Bee Gees or Love..
Excellent inspired,natural songwriting,tasteful playing and production and all topped off with one of the purest-toned fabulous vocalists i've ever heard on GB..
This is timeless music filled with that effortless open-topped summer freeway driving vibe..
I really wish there were songs like this in the charts in the REAL world-and with the right push this could easily be a hit..
Should sail to the top of the GB charts with ease tho-and if it dosn't then thats not the fault of the song but poor taste on the part of GB reviewers imho..
Onto my playlist-A rare 5/5

"Flat out excellent - a 5."

A review of the song "Girl"

I like the entry vocal melody - reminds me of George Harrison. Goes to a driving rhythm, but still keeps with the 60's theme with the vibrato guitar and major to minor change. Really like the chorus, lots of interesting changes. I don't ever remember hearing a driving modern sound so successfully fused with 60's melody. The melody is outstanding - probably the best I've ever heard on Garageband.com...

Very, very well done.

"number 1 hit in my book so far"

A review of the song "Our only"

Very excellent smood yet rocking hook. I like the changes, melody is catchy and special effects on the vocals+guittars really turns me on (first male groupy). Productions very professional, bands tight sounds like a smood version of the Red Hot Chilliepeppers especially the singer. I wouden't mind opening for your band.

History:
Celebrate the sun was formed in 2001 in Liverpool, England. The band played their first gigs in London and Liverpool the same year. The time in England also included a TV-performance at BBC. After a year off and a number of member changes, the present line up of the band was complete in late 2003, this time based in Stockholm, Sweden. The following spring was spent playing gigs around the capital and writing new material. The band had made several previous attempts on recording material with different producers, but didn't achieve the results desired, so in the summer of 2004 the band decided to produce their own album. The recordings took place at Real music studio, a completely analog studio, in Stockholm and resulted in a product this time giving the band justice. A releaseparty was held October 29, 2004 for the debut album simply called "Celebrate the sun".
2005 has been spent on promoting the album and playing gigs all around Sweden and Denmark. The album has been given a great reception and has been played on radiostations in Sweden, US, UK, Canada, Australia and Japan among others.
