Month of Sundays, founded in Vienna in the spring of 2013, has been following ever since the objective of creating contemporary chamber music. In their songs, they strive for a high level of details and put the focus on a well-considered coordination of musical content with its form, spanning the scope from minimal music, post rock and jazz.
In 2015 they released our self-titled debut album on Wire Globe Recordings to wide critical acclaim, followed by many invitations to renowned festivals, such as the Jazz Fest Wien, the Jazz and the City Festival Salzburg and the Jazznovember Bayreuth. Other achievements include Finalist of the BAWAG Next Generation Awards at the Vienna Porgy and Bess Jazz Club, as well as numerous concerts nationally and internationally. The highlights thus far are performances at the Austrian Kulturforum and the Rockwood Music Hall in New York City.
The quartet was awarded the newcomer support scheme 'New Austrian Sound of Music'. This prestigious award has been given by the foreign ministry of Austria to support the ensemble financially during 2018/19 and to enable them to engage in international performance opportunities. We performed already in the UK, Croatia, Turkey, Montenegro, Germany, Slovenia and many more. Shows in Ukraine, Greece, Poland, Iran, Rumania and others are fixed for 2019.
In 2018 began the composition and production phase of their second album Time and Ruins (working title). This project is due to be published in fall 2019.
