Dig it Out!: The Proclaimers' 'Sunshine on Leith'

Posted on

Remember the Proclaimers, the Scottish duo only best known for the song “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” in the States? (You can thank the film Benny & Joon for that.) Their 1988 album Sunshine on Leith remains one of my favorites, enjoyable from start to finish. (Watch the video for the title track below.)

While I can’t vouch for the band’s other works, I am suddenly curious about their seventh studio album, Life With You, hitting shelves in the UK Sept. 3. The lead single is no “I’m on My Way”, but it’s got some sweet harmonies and a happy beat that makes me feel like I should be watching Love Actually.
