Return To The Sun are a guitar driven indie rock band currently situated in Edinburgh. The seed for RTTS was planted in late 2012 before fully blossoming mid 2013 when they recruited drummer Nic Ross. Other members include singer/songwriter and Guitarist Stephen McCafferty and Guitarist/backing vocalist Alan Barbour who have been making music together as far back as 2007. Throw in bassist Sean Ford and you'll find yourself a real force to be reckoned with. Drawing from a wide range of influences including Biffy Clyro, David Bowie, Oasis, The Cure, Deacon Blue, The Cranberries, The Strokes amongst many, many more Return To The Sun have developed an edgy heavy indie rock sound with pop sensibilities. Return To The Sun recorded and released their debut E.P Eskimo bones in 2013 and toured it around the UK during the month of December climaxing with a triumphant first performance at the O2 Academy in Glasgow playing the main stage as part of the futures fest. They have appeared on BBC Introducing and radio magnetic receiving praise from Jim Gellatly who described the track "Into days" as "Simply beautiful" and James Santer who said that Return To The Sun were "a band to definitely watch out for" complimenting the dark rock track "Ghost Train" by saying it was a "Great record, really really good record, I do love that a lot". Return To The Sun have also received good feed back from Issy Sampson of the Guardian and NME who described them as "one of 2013's most exciting new bands".
