Sunnbrella, the solo project of London musician David Zbrika may have begun it’s life as a lo-fi bedroom project, but is now soaring to new heights with backing from Permanent Creeps Records (Italia90, Bdrmm).
Zbrika’s latest offering on the label, ‘Lost & Found’ moody, shoegazey search for a meaningful connection in a world of temporary pleasures and instant gratification. Dripping with raw, intimate emotion the track offers a glimmer of fragility beneath infatuating guitar lines and punch bass.
Speaking about the themes tackled while writing ‘Lost & Found’, David explains: “I often don’t know what the message of a song is when I’m writing it. Sometimes the lyrics are completed before I understand what the song is about; It’s only after gradually piecing the words together that the meaning becomes clear to me. So in a weird way, I have to interpret my own words, but there’s room for completely different interpretations by the listeners. Maybe they’d understand the lyrics better than I do”.
