Indie/Psych/Rock (San Francisco)
With dramatic song structuring, dips into shoegazer territory and a haunted California grooviness, Sleepy Sun have made a big splash overseas (mags like Uncut and Mojo have praised them profusely) and are currently cracking the North American market with their dirging Rock & Roll epics and waves-crash live presence. The band is currently touring behind its well-received new album, Fever.
You’ll Dig It If You Dig: An Indie Rock Pink Floyd, The Black Angels. (Mike Breen, CityBeat)
~ "Sleepy Sun are playing a different, possibly bigger, game than many of their psych contemporaries ... terrific ... hugely enjoyable." (Uncut)
~ "Druggy, hazy, sun-scorched blues noise from Cosmic Californians ... makes you think of cattle skulls, magical rites and oily flares brushing against motorcycle cylinders. Like the whole of Fever, it is gloriously hellish." (Mojo)
