After a breakthrough year which included a successful debut UK headline tour which also sold out at London’s Electrowerkz, a support slot on Rudimental’s recent tour and a glimmering reception from music critics all over the land, Bipolar Sunshine has recently announced a new set of headline tour dates for March/April 2014.
The Manchester born and raised solo project otherwise known as Adio Marchant made his mark in 2013 with two equally strong EP’s- ‘Aesthetics’ and ‘Drowning Butterflies’. Marchant’s sound is unapologetically candid; drawing inspiration from a wide range of genres, blending the delicate melodies and guitar riffs of indie pop with a soulful vocal delivered in an almost chatty manner- none more so than demonstrated in ‘Love More Worry Less’ (which received so much love that it was added to the Radio 1 ‘In New Music We Trust’ playlist).
The R&B/Indie fusion is not necessarily a new formula, but one which Bipolar Sunshine seems to be able to deliver with much more integrity and emotion than similar acts in the past, which makes both the EP’s hugely listenable and likeable. It’s uplifting stuff, modern day love stories with catchy upbeat choruses you’ll find yourself humming along to all day.
Midland based fans can catch Bipolar Sunshine on his UK tour at the HMV Institute @ Birmingham on March 30th– to find out more information about Bipolar Sunshine and for tickets, log onto www.bipolarsunshine.com.
