Presents for Sally are an indie/alternative band from the UK. They formed in 2005 and consist of Matt Etherton, Anna Etherton and Luke Feierabend, the band’s sound has been compared to groups like My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Sonic Youth.

History[edit]

The band originally formed after a series of home recorded demo’s started to gain some record label interest. In 2006 the track “Flowers Falling Sideways” was released on the compilation album “The Secret Garden: The New Wave Of Shoegaze”. The album was released on INVADA records, a label run by Geoff Barrow of Portishead and featured among others, tracks from Ulrich Schnauss, Amusement Parks On Fire and the Fleeting Joys. The feedback was good and led to the band signing to the Bristol based record label Laser Ghost Recordings.

A CD was pressed up for record store day in April 2009 and featured 2 songs, “Flowers Falling Sideways” and a demo of “Catch Your Fall”. There were just 50 copies and the first 20 came with a badge in the PVC case.

After a year of playing live supporting the likes of creation records legends The Telescopes, the debut single was released in November 2009. “Catch your fall” was released on very limited edition 7” vinyl (250 copies) as well as digitally through iTunes [1] and other download retailers. The single received very favorable reviews in the music press and gained airplay on various radio stations including BBC Radio 1.

Early 2010 has seen the band put the finishing touches to their debut album “A Touch of Joy, A Touch of Sadness” which has been penciled in for release around the end of summer/early autumn. It will be proceeded by an E.P of the same name which will feature the title track as well as 3 new B sides.
