Though
immensely popular on the club scene throughout most of the ‘90s, it’s been a
good decade since much activity was heard from British techno/house combo
Sunscreem, who had hits such as “Pressure,” “Love U More,” “Exodus” and “White
Skies.” 2001 brought the release of Ten
Mile Bank
, but other than the band turning up on compilations, including a
2009 best-of, and soundtracks, that was about it, and the assumption was that
the band had split for good. (Lead singer Lucia Holm released a cover of the
Psychedelic Furs’ “Heaven” in 2005 and has also collaborated with a number of
other artists.)

 

Then in 2008 there was a surprise reunion gig, and fans started getting their hopes up. Now comes
word, via the band’s newly-established official website, that Holm, keyboardist
Paul Carnell and Darren Woodford are “back in the studio working on the new
album.” They’ve posted a few previews of songs (“Sweet Life,” “Death Valley
Sunset,” “Shut Up,” “Soul”) on the audio player at the site. No other specific
info seems to be ready at this time, however. Check out some flashbacks, below, including a clip from the reunion concert.
