Having released no new music since their 2016 top-30 album Very Rarely Say Die, British-Australian indie band Sunset Sons are back and cooking up a storm in preparation for the release of their new EP, River, due on July 6th.
Running Man is the first taste of what’s to come from this band’s revival EP. It’s a hard-hitting representation of the trials and tribulations of pursuing what you love, full of exciting drum rhythms and echoey guitar. The melody sounds deceptively cheerful in contrast to the dramatic lyrics, but this creates quite a mature tone to the track and certainly marks the start of the direction the band are now taking. With bittersweet lyrics like ‘This life happens while we’re making plans’, Sunset Sons offer a mature new perspective while still maintaining their signature youthful summer indie vibes.
Sunset Sons are smoothly building their momentum back up and with this new era of sound and I’m certain they’ll be seeing even greater success when the River EP drops.
