In The Studio… Sunset Sons
In mid July, Sunset Sons arrived at Monnow Valley Studio to record an EP along with producer James Lewis. Sunset Sons are a British-Australian quartet who have served up quite a storm after their self released debut Le Surfing EP in February reached number 6 in the I-Tunes chart. They’ve been dubbed Zane Lowe’s ‘next hype’ to radio one listeners and have also been included in Fearne Cotton’s playlist on the same radio station. Often compared to the likes of Kings Of Leon, the raw sound was easily captured here at Monnow Valley before being transferred to the legendary Mike Crossey to be mixed. The guys made the most of the Welsh summer with full catering provided. Bbqs aplenty and many a dip in the river. They also made the most of the local beer gardens and generally soaked up the local atmosphere in Monmouth.
Since their self released EP, Sunset Sons are now being backed by Polydor. Their new EP is sure to exceed all expectations. This summer they played many festivals including The Great Escape and the BBC introducing stage at Reading and Leeds. Keep an ear out for these guys, sure to completely dominate in the near future!
