Music: The Sundays
The Sundays were an English Indie Pop band that gained prominence throughout the 1990s with the album Reading, Writing & Arithmetic. Their next two albums, Blind and Static & Silence, didn't nearly match the acclaim and success of their debut, but nonetheless are highly regarded in their own rights. The band is known for lead singer Harriet Wheeler's ethereal vocals and the band's mesh of Jangle Pop with Dream Pop.
Tropes associated with The Sundays:
- Album Title Drop: Blind appears in "24 Hours"; Static and Silence is a phrase from "Monochrome".
- Bait and Switch: There's one in each of the three verses of "Hideous Towns": "I joined the army / The Salvation Army", "I went into service / With the Civil Service" and "I went to the circus / Piccadilly Circus".
- Day of the Week Name
- Dream Pop
- Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: "I Kicked A Boy"
- Indie Pop
- Jangle Pop
- Mondegreen: "Here's Where The Story Ends" was prone to these.
- Nobody Poops: An aversion, a propos nothing: "You're Not the Only One I Know" has the line "You'll find me in the lavatory".
- Religion Rant Song: "God Made Me" seems to be an oblique type 2 or 3.
- Shout-Out: "And it stoned me to my soul" in the song "Folk Song" is a shout out to Van Morrison.
- Speedy Techno Remake: Inverted. The hit "dance" cover version of "Here's Where The Story Ends" by Tin Tin Out is actually slower than the Sundays original.
