Sleepy Sun, San Francisco’s answer to sweet psych rock arrive this Monday 10th of September to play Birmingham’s very own Hare & Hounds. The self-proclaimed ‘rambling band’ are fresh from a summer tour which saw them take to the stage at ATP’s I’ll Be Your Mirror festival and both Primavera festivals in Spain and Portugal.
After years of honing their skills in the van, this collective of dreamer-vagabonds have finally released an album which captures something of both the beautiful and the brutal in the form of this year’s ‘Spine Hits’. Recorded against a desert backdrop with Dave Catching (QOTSA, Eagles of Death Metal) producing, Sleepy Sun have managed to fuse the heavy jams they became known for with saccharine laced pop melodies that are hard for anyone to resist.
ATP netted a snapshot of the recording process viewable below:
