Sunnier Release New Indie Punk Track, ‘I Call Him Gamblore’

Leeds-based newcomers SUNLINER have released new indie punk track ‘I Call Him Gamblore’, via Lockjaw Records, alongside a music video that takes a dig at corrupt corporations.

The track is about “struggling to adjust after education to the crushing realisation of the bleak job market. Nobody when they’re asked growing up what they’d like to be when they get older says, ‘I’d like to work for Amazon’ (Amazon being just an arbitrary example of a Big Corporate Conglomerate Who Care Little For Their Staff TM) and the harsh reality of it is that so many people have to compromise, not because they want to, because they’re left no choice, and only the lucky few get to do something even slightly relevant to their interests,” says vocalist Jake. “It’s not a fun lesson to learn,” he adds.

The accompanying music video, which was filmed at local Leeds venue BOOM, shows the band as a batch of workers running themselves into the ground to inevitably be replaced by new flesh. Furthermore, the title of the new track is a quote from an episode of The Simpsons which sees Homer tell Lisa about her mother’s gambling addiction, “The only monster here is the gambling monster who has enslaved your mother. I call him Gamblore”.

Sunliner Release New Track, ‘Jo, Joni, Mary & Maria’

Leeds-based indie punk band SUNLINER have released new track ‘Jo, Joni, Mary, & Maria’ alongside a retro music video montage of vintage movies and old school advertisements.

The new track “is a Springsteen-esq getting out of this town, running away to chase dreams-story. Partly inspired by my sister who moved to Edinburgh straight from uni, without knowing anybody there and carving out a new life,” says vocalist Jake.

“The sorta coming-of-age realisation that a small town in the middle of nowhere isn’t going to be where your big break, your dream to be a singer, or novel writer, artist, or whatever you wanna be is going to be realised. It’s sorta bitter-sweet. There are all these possibilities out there, it’s not gonna be easy and might not be possible, but at least trying is where it all starts,” he adds.
