SUNSET SONS – Remember
aaamusic | On 17, Dec 2014
If there is a more obviously Australian group of lads, show them to me now. Sun-kissed skin and hair, the laidback vibe just emanating from under their low-cut tank tops…
Actually, Sunset Sons describe themselves as Anglo-Aussies – but that’s neither here nor there… Having spent the past however-long recording their EP in Hossegor, France, the band now reside there and also shot the video for this single there. They’re big fans of surfing (obviously) and the video is mainly filmed on a beach. They’re Australian, can you tell?
The song itself is immensely catchy – a lot of bands struggle to incorporate piano into their songs and make it sound natural but these guys have nailed it. Without the piano, it could sound quite rocky, but the use of it really lifts ‘Remember’. Think Kings Of Leon meet Maroon 5.
It’s got a real driving feel to it, as though it’s building up to something, and the instruments are played with a casual sophistication that fit right in with the nonchalance of the band’s look. The chorus could have had a bit more made of it, but overall – a big song. It’ll definitely be on an advert soon.
