Watch out world, Single By Sunday is here and they’re here to stay!! SBS are a four-piece pop/punk rock band from East Kilbride, Glasgow. Formed in July 2015 they already command an enviable social media following.
Managed by Kendell Smith who recorded and toured with The Specials in the mid-90s, the band blend the fun and excitement of early Blink 182 records with Scottish swagger and have been lapping up advice from anywhere they can get it including Kendell’s ex-bandmate Neville Staple. “He told us we should keep our energy level full throttle. We take our influence from early Specials shows we’ve watched online. We just want to write songs that we can jump around to, and hopefully, everyone else will want to jump around to as well.” Says Josh, lead singer of the punk pop outfit.
The band list a wide range of influences such as The 1975, 5SOS, Paramore, Green Day and the list goes on. Comparisons are already being drawn between S.B.S and the likes of McBusted and The Vamps. They are also referred to as the “Glaswegian 5 Seconds of Summer” by their legion of super fans. “We don’t mind that at all” Jonny adds “They’re all great bands doing what we want to be doing; touring, recording and entertaining their fans.”
