Formed early 2018, Sydney-based ‘The Sunday Estate’ combine the bitter-sweet pop of 80s post-punk like The Cure and New Order with the driving guitars and synths of bands like The Strokes and Phoenix. The Sunday Estate have a forceful sound that is simultaneously new and fresh while evoking familiarity and memory.

Their newest single "We Were Kids" evokes the more complicated parts of nostalgia with its take on childhood memory and the tribulations of adulthood. It builds on their earlier single "I Don't Want To Be Alone", which cleverly deals more with maintaining intimacy and understanding in relationships rather than offering simple feelings of sadness or loneliness. In this vein, "We Were Kids" also centres on the effort required in maintaining childhood friendships, and is tinged with suburban loss. Its a subtly complex take on growing and remembering, that, while wistful, never loses its sunny and headstrong optimism.
