After moving to Brooklyn from San Diego in 2008, Sam Sundos teamed up with
drummer and friend Trevor McLoughlin to form The Sundelles, named as a nod to the
Phil Spektor groups of the 60’s. Their self-released 7 inch, “Dead Youth” was delivered
in 2010, and a tour with Sleigh Bells followed, as well as shows with Cults, Smith
Westerns, Obits, Das Racist and The Slits and a session at the Daytrotter studios. This
garnered the boys national attention as they continued to grow with the release of their
debut album “Georgia Swan”.

Produced by Tony Maimone of Pere Ubu and featuring Soft Pack’s Matty
McLoughlin, “Georgia Swan” was released in March of 2011 and has been described
by Nylon Magazine as “A catchy cross between Smith Westerns and Surfer Blood”. The
record is a shambling, reverb-kissed sunny garage throwback, delivered with simplistic
catchy melodies and introspective lyrics, reminiscent of perfect mellow summer days
and cruising PCH with the windows down.

After solidifying the line-up in 2011 with bassist Ryan Spoto, The Sundelles
undertook a national tour with Hanni El Khatib in 2012, and played shows with Ty Segal,
Surfer Blood, White Fence, The Babies, Soft Pack, DIIV, Crocodiles, Beach Fossils and
Oberhofer, all while writing new material for their highly-anticipated follow-up album: “No
Milk”.

Recorded in Los Angeles’ Comp-Ny Studios with producer Rob Barbato (Darker
My Love, The Fall, Cass McCombs, The Babies), “No Milk” is an earnest reflection of the
group’s growth and sees the trio move away from their sunny surf esthetic to the painful
yet hopeful view of a dude coming to grips with a new life, while still maintaining a minor-
key pop upbeat sound with clean and catchy simplicity. Oddly intimate and irrevocably
bleak, “No Milk” is about falling in love and losing that love, and evokes vivid images of
trying to hold on and at the same time letting go.

“No Milk” is set to be released by Narnack Records in March
