After releasing their debut double EP to critical acclaim and cutting their teeth as a live outfit in the closing months of 2013, Melbourne dream-pop outfit Sunbeam Sound Machine are excited to announce their first ever Sydney show date. The 5-piece live band will head north next week to play at Brighton Up Bar on Thursday 20th of March.
While in Sydney the band will also perform a very special live to air FBi Lunch Break Session at the FBi Social venue on Wednesday 19th of March. The performance will kick off at 1pm and will be broadcast live on FBi Radio in Sydney and is able to be streamed live online via their website.
