Sunset Sons started out as surfers who loved making music. Three hectic years of writing, recording and near non-stop touring – including supporting Imagine Dragons on 36 arena dates – have turned them in to seasoned musicians who have to squeeze surfing in on the side. Still, you won’t hear them complaining. Swapping waves for stages and beaches for fields, playing well over 200 shows in three years has tuned Sunset Sons in to one of the UK’s most exciting live bands. Their acclaimed and addictive debut album, Very Rarely Say Die, captured both the raucous spirit of those live shows and the carefree attitude that made the band friends in the first place.
Their hugely supported new EP ‘The River’ shows a darker, more mature, and urgent side of the band and serves as a powerful taster for their forthcoming second album (2019), both produced by Grammy nominated and ‘MPG UK Producer of the Year’ Catherine Marks (Foals, Wolf Alice, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, The Amazons, Howling Bells), the EP was recorded in their adopted hometown, the commune of Hossegor on the south-west Atlantic coast of France.
