Our Sunday Affairs


Our Sunday Affairs were a four-piece emo/indie band from Robbinsville, New Jersey that formed in 2009 and broke up in 2013. A handful of EP's, a few splits, a compilation, and a sole full-length is what comprises their discography, which is quite a bit for a band that only existed for four years. Thankfully we've got a decent chunk of material, because they were a truly great band. They played a very noodley/twinkly brand of emo, kind of like Joie De Vivre or Algernon Cadwallader, but with a hint of screamier territory that fans of the Merchant Ships family and early Old Gray will definitely take a liking to. Basically, if you're into modern midwestern emo, you're into Our Sunday Affairs. Enjoy.
