Last Friday whilst Mia was off groovin’ to her boyfriend’s band REIKA (more on them in the coming weeks) I was groovin’ at the Corner Hotel amongst a sold out Ocean Alley gig. If their delicious psych-reggae rhythms weren’t enough, (oh and gorgeous surfy locks) I also had the pleasure of hearing one of their support acts, a band by the name of SUN.
Fresh on the scene with their new release ‘Seasons‘, these boys had the crowd hooked and in the mood for a good time! (Not to mention there were multiple murmurs of “These guys are fucken’ sick!!” around the room!) They have a contagious mellow vibe and their groovy beat keeps you up and about whilst feeling like you’re drifting deep into another dimension.
Just in time for the season change on friday (shit yeah cya winter) ‘Seasons’ is a lo-fi psych pop jam recorded at Woodstock and Avery studios, mixed by George Carpenter and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Royal Blood, Artic Monkeys.)
I may or may not have woken up Saturday morning with a bruise in the centre of my nose due to a flying beer bottle (lol) but another listen to Seasons had me feelin’ a whole lot better, plus the discovery was well worth the bruise!
Have a listen below and get lost in their catchy guitar riffs…
After a full on stint supporting Ocean Alley, the boys are set to have a bit of down time, but keep your eyes and ears peeled on all their socials as we are sure they will be on a stage near you in no time.
