Sleepy Sun: New Single & Tour Dates Unveiled!
aaamusic | On 29, Jun 2010
Marina is the latest single from psychedelic giants Sleepy Sun, set for release September 6th on ATP. The opening track of their acclaimed new album Fever, Marina represents the two sides of the band, beginning as a languid, bluesy expanse and building to a tribal beat-driven climax of stomping, screaming proportions. The single will be released as a download and on 10” vinyl with a brand new B-side ‘Horses’.
Fever is a band working, like the heroic combos of old – real, made by hand, eyes ahead on an unbridled future and giving two shits for the sideways glance of the lurking trend spotter. A band working, and a working band – Sleepy Sun’s soaring and soul-stirring live shows are already mowing down audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Recent converts Arctic Monkeys chose them as touring partners in the US which ended with them witnessing riots together in Mexico. UNKLE’s lead single from their new LP ‘Follow Me Down’ features ‘Sun singer Rachel Fannan on vocal duties. The converts are fast becoming legion. The four corners of Europe now have another chance to join the legion when Sleepy Sun tour the continent in August.
