“Tropical drum patterns are bashed out at a Lightening Bolt pace, while guitars that usually evoke pastel-coloured yachts get the same adrenaline boost. But what really helps it bloom are the anthemic vocals, all Britpopped and stadium ready.” – ChartATTACK
“An improv- and effects-laden trip through cracked coastal rhythms and
dynamically visceral experimentation.” – Portland Mercury
“Ripe with a frenetic energy that’s passed between members like a hot potato” – Willamette Week
New Moss Records is thrilled to release “Raspberry,” a new track from Sun Angle off their upcoming debut album Diamond Junk, out May 7th. The track, which premiered via Paste, is available for posting HERE. Produced by Danny Seim from Menomena, Diamond Junk was recorded in a brief blip of space-time in a cabin lurking in the depths of Zigzag, Oregon — musical immersion marked by the creative abandon of all-night psychotropic inspiration and oblique strategies.
Known in their native Portland for their irreverent, expressive, spontaneous live shows-full of aggressive elation and gritty, raucous, surreal layers of sound, the trio channels that same epic, improvisational energy into their debut album. Diamond Junk creates, as the title suggests, exhilarating tension between beauty and chaos, propelled by artful, animalistic urgency.
The synergistic three-piece consists of Charlie Salas Humara on vocals & guitar (Panther), Marius Libman on bass (Copy) and Papi Fimbres on drums (Paper/Upper/Cuts). Central and South American footsteps traverse through Sun Angle’s veins, blending SST punk, Cumbia, and pop in a wash of psychedelic filth. Sun Angle ride the line between chaos and pop, making music all it’s own.
Sun Angle is plotting a spring tour, which will be announced in the coming weeks. In the meantime, the band is playing the Block Lounge in Seattle on April 12th with Religious Girls.
