A Guest Blog from Synne Eileen

Because, we didnt end up naming this label Lazy Acre by accident we decided that rather than write a post to introduce you to our six little rays of sunshine "Synne Eileen & The Sunbeams" ourselves, we could get them to do it instead. And as my will be done - here it is!

Holla!! We are Synne Eileen & the Sunbeams – a happy gang of hardcore Vikings, currently located in Liverpool. We like to play songs that make people wrinkle their foreheads from the lyrics and smile from the melodies. Our songs are usually about weird animals with special skills or some sort of seasonal heartbreak. – Occasionally we also play a semi-ironic lovesong. And the melodies are usually like musical doodles, that you easily can hum along to.

When Benjamin from Lazy Acre Records first contacted us, we knew that when it came to band management we were as shambolic as a herd of sheep lead by a dog whisperer. However, as soon as the not-so-lazy-lazy-acre-people started collaborating with us, we have started seeing our name on places we didn’t put it. Which in this case is a good thing.

At the moment our biggest ambition is to have a thousand people whistling the melody of Yo Dove, You Filthy Bird at the synchronically.

Until then,
Stay cuckoo.

PS: you can find us on iTunes, Spotify, WiMP, Urørt, YouTube, etc.

Synne Eileen covers Sledding With Tigers

So, we challenged Synne (lead singer of course of Synne Eileen & The Sunbeams) to cover a Sledding with Tigers track. Just because. Rather awesomely she did - just because - and the results are below. Beautiful stuff.
