SNEAKY FEELINGS – Send You (Flying Nun/1983/2015)

19 Mar


Filled with lush pop harmonies and southern psychedelia, Send You saw the the Sneaky Feelings expand their songwriting and sonic ambition beyond their early four track recordings. In comparison to some of their label mates the Sneaky Feelings exhaled a lighter, Byrds-like, touch but still retained the distinctive feel of many on the Flying Nun roster. With three band members (Matthew Bannister, David Pine and Martin Durrant) each contributing engaging songs to the album, Send You remains one of the great Flying Nun releases.

This deluxe edition will give a further detailed look at the band’s early material, with the album expanded to include a remastered version of Send You, plus songs from 1985’s Be My Friend 7”, Husband House EP and bonus tracks from their 1990 session at Dunedin’s radio 1, which featured on an earlier expanded CD release.

« Over the years there has been a lot of talk about the so-called ‘Dunedin sound’. Dunedin’s Sneaky Feelings were a band whose ambitions and interests went much wider than any generic ‘sound’; they would even come to be regarded as something of an anomaly on Flying Nun, home to the Dunedin sound. And 
yet their first album seemed to epitomize that sound, whatever it was.(flying nun)
