THOUSANDS of people around the world have been logging on to Youtube this week to watch the new video from Grantham band That Sunday Feeling.
The video for their track “Greater Heights” was watched more than 13,000 times in less than 48 hours after being uploaded at the weekend.
The band, made up of Grantham lads Pete Coppin on drums, singer/songwriter Joe Atkinson, Dave Stevens on guitar and Corby Glen’s Jay Imlach on bass, picked up many new fans earlier this year when they toured as the support act for McFly before headlining their own tour.
Pete said: “Since it was uploaded, the video has really blown up. It passed 10,000 views straight away - it’s going absolutely crazy. Since the tour with McFly and our own headline tour, nothing has come close to that but this is a breath of fresh air for us.”
The video was shot in early July at a disused RAF base on the south coast.
Pete said: “The filming was all done in a day by Daniel Broadley in a big, abandoned Second World War air base. We may not have been allowed to be there but we were! At one point a whole bus load of tourists showed up to look round the place and a guy came in saying “we’ve got the Beatles in today”. Luckily, they didn’t mind that we were there.”
The new video has garnered the unsigned band plenty of attention which they hope will lead to bigger and better things.
Pete said: “We have had a lot of interest this week from industry people so we are looking to arrange another short tour in October or November to give them a chance to see us.”
Meanwhile, Pete has teamed up with Fox UK Music in Westgate to offer drum lessons. To find out more, call Fox UK on 01476 570700.
