‘SUN SKIN AIR’
“Combines Tame Impala synths with solid, Maccabees-lite choruses – they’re well-equipped to win plenty of people over in 2019”
“On newie ‘Sun Skin Air’, London quartet SUN SILVA manage to crib together classic driving melodies, woozy psych and a tendency for the unexpected – to create an intoxicating whole”
“A persistent rhythmic drumming propels the ears and then as the crescendo builds, an ominous clash and we’re instantly hooked… ‘Sun Skin Air’ hits a high during its dreamy psychedelic flourishes”
HEADLINE LONDON SHOW ANNOUNCED
CAMDEN ASSEMBLY – MAY 4th
PLAYING SUMMER FESTIVALS
HIT THE NORTH, LIVE AT LEEDS, DOT TO DOT & BARN ON THE FARM
Fast-rising London collective SUN SILVA have released the video for their critically acclaimed new single ‘Sun Skin Air’. The band have also announced a headline London show at Camden Assembly on May 4th. Tickets are on sale now via Live Nation.
‘Sun Skin Air’ is a high-octane cut that combines propulsive beats with Temples-esque harmony-laden psychedelic flourishes. The trippy accompanying video captures the band performing across London amid waves of cosmic mind-bending visuals.
Regarding the single frontman Oscar Gormley says, “We wrote ‘Sun Skin Air’ in a horrible hostel with no fan during a visit to Spain. It’s a hard hitter, kind of Krauty and a bit gritty – probably due to the frustration of being in that room. This song is much weirder than ‘Blue Light’, which is the way we wanted to go with this one.”
‘Sun Skin Air’ has been added to the NME Radio playlist and championed by John Kennedy on his Radio X ‘Xposure’ show. The song has also received strong support from press tastemakers including NME, DIY and many others.
It follows the release of their debut single ‘Blue Light’ last year. Its release saw SUN SILVA burst onto the scene and achieve strong critical acclaim from the likes of DIY, Dork and Clash, alongside major radio support from Radio 1, Radio X and BBC Introducing.
SUN SILVA have been quick to put their firm stamp on the UK live scene and have already played an impressive number of sold out headline shows in London including The Lexington, Sebright Arms and Paper Dress Vintage.
Last year SUN SILVA completed their first tour of the UK in association with the Radio 1 Indie Show. Additionally they played major support slots for the likes of Jungle, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and Swimming Girls, while also making their debut festival appearance at Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival.
The band will play further festivals this year and have been announced to perform at Live At Leeds, Dot To Dot, Hit The North and Barn On The Farm. The band have also been announced to support Luna Bay at London’s OMEARA on March 11th.
SUN SILVA have been quick to prove themselves one of the most exciting and in-demand bands to emerge from London and 2019 looks set to be a defining year for the collective.
SUN SILVA are Oscar Gormley (vocals/guitar), Charlie Woof-Byrne (keys), Jake Brown (drums), Sam Becker (bass).
