Sun Colony releases hypnotic debut EP

Sun Colony have been fortunate enough to acquire one hell of a press release tagline. Just recently, the psych rock-leaning quartet received an unexpected ringing endorsement from none other than Slowdive’s Neil Halsted. Even if Halsted may know a thing or two about a genre he helped pioneer, the question remains: is it really any good? Well, the good news about the Topanga Canyon band’s self-titled EP is that it doesn’t try to reproduce a tired facsimile of Slowdive’s incandescent melancholy. They approach a more sunburned form of post-rock with just a taste of classic Britpop, which is fitting given that their EP was mixed in the U.K. after rising local producer Kyle Mullarky gave their ascending, yet oblique structures a hypnotic aura.

Sun Colony’s debut EP is out now via all streaming platforms. A 12’’ release will follow in the next 1-2 months via their official website.


JP's CMJ 2014 Day 5: Slowdive, Low, Moon Duo, White Fence, A Place to Bury Strangers

I promised myself this would be the day I planned everything—the day I wouldn’t have to rush, I’d be where I had to be, when I had to be there, arriving in a calm, collected manner, the whole day. I kept my promise inasmuch as my day starting late, cutting some of the showcases I thought about running to, and meeting my aunt and uncle for a beer at Smorgasborg. I’ve learned that, for the most part, at CMJ, if you miss a band playing an afternoon set, chances are you’ll be able to see them at an evening set. Or better yet, a late night set. - Keep reading JP Basileo's reporting of Day 5 of the CMJ Music Marathon.
