Listen: SUNBEARS! – “He’s A Lie! He’s Not Real!”

23 Oct

sunbears! Future Sounds

Amazingly, it’s been over a year since we last featured our ‘S’ band, Jacksonville’s Sunbears!. We’re pleased to say that they are gearing up to release a new album, Future Sounds, and in the meantime, have released a limited edition two-track EP for us to enjoy. It’s limited edition in that the digital files will only be available until the album is released and mega-rare in the sense that all 50 copies of the hand carved (by the band) crystal 7” sold out in a day. We didn’t get one, which bummed us out, but thankfully the band remain as bright and colourful as when we last heard from them, so our bummed outness didn’t last that long.

Lead track, “He’s A Lie! He’s Not Real!”, is a trip into outer space in a homemade cardboard-box rocket ship. Tin foil spacesuits are the order of the day as we woosh out past stars dangling on string and little pipe-cleaner aliens peeking out from plastic bottle spaceships. It’s bright and imaginative, sounds streak past like comets, electronic space-age warbles speckle the night sky as guitars and drums swirl and pulsate. It’s the sonic equivalent of being 8 years old, turning your room into a vast universe of delight and wonder, going for an adventure where no song has gone before.

”He’s A Lie” He’s Not Real!” is available now as part of the two-track EP, ‘Selections From The Future Sounds’ LP’ and can be bought here.
