Sonny & The Sunsets – palmreader Teaser


“Death? Afterworld? Android lovers dying in the streets bleeding green blood? Homeless girls? Dogs stranded here from other planets? What are Sonny & The Sunsets getting at on Antenna to the Afterworld, a fast-moving record of new wave synths and post punk beats?”

“On Antenna to the Afterworld, Smith likens himself to a space being visiting Earth using wry humor, gritty poetry, and a myriad of musical lenses fleshed out by drummer Kelley Stoltz’s Joy Division-like beats, Ryan Browne’s new wavish basslines, and Tahlia Harbour’s deadpan vocals.”

Stream the new Sonny & The Sunsets song ‘Green Blood’ taken from their upcoming album “Antenna to the Afterworld,” due out on June 11th via Polyvinyl Records. Pre-order, HERE.





私小説という呼び方はホントは好きじゃないのですが、それでも、ソニー・スミスには私小説家の魂が宿っていると思うのデス。



Sonny & the Sunsets – Dark Corners Teaser


“The murder of a close friend of the band led Sonny Smith to think a lot about death and life after death. Shortly after, a visit to a psychic/medium brought Smith into contact with another friend who had died. This encounter with the afterworld inspired many of the lyrics on Antenna to the Afterworld. And what a strangely entertaining odyssey it turned out to be.” –Polyvinyl Records





On June 11th via Polyvinyl, Sonny & The Sunsets will be releasing their new album “Antenna to the Afterworld,” preview the opening track ‘Dark Corners’ from the album. Pre-order, HERE.
