2010-RELEASES

Suddenly Sunshine is not that kind of band easy to categorize and that's precisely what we love them : they 're not not really folk, neither strictly in Indie Rock Dogma too, but just incredibly pop.

This French trio looks and sounds beautiful ... Elegance is maybe the closest word to definy this charming ensemble (two boys and a girl).

Of course they listened a lot Tim Hardin, Love, Tim Buckley, Bill Fahey but there's something else exciting in their music, specially in the harmony of their three voices, somehow reminding about childhood and fragility, but although that would cheer you up in a second and make you hop along. "Spanish Mermaid" is really a joyful song to sing along in your car, even stuck in traffic jams, where "Lonely Planet" is the most intimistic and darkest piece on the record.

In this first EP the band have also been looking for their own special way of sounding. They invited to their tracks some brass (trombone & trumpet) and some strings (cello&viola), putting some vivid energy and a delicate color to their music.

Is this casual elegance due to their native french touch? But on another hand they're not so far from Beirut's music.

About artwork, Suddenly Sunshine went for beauty and simplicity, using a Neil Krug picture to illustrate their mood. This photograph has always been connected to music, doing some artwork for Boards of Canada, Ratatat & Devendrah Banhart.

To add a special twist to the Ep, we invited Isan (Uk electronica duo on Morr music) to rework "Summer days", the opening track.

Isan are well known for their remixes of Notwist, Depeche mode, Seefeel and beautiful deep electronic albums. Isan's version of Summer Days is a very texturized soundscape surrounded by futuristic beats, not far from Flying Lotus or Four Tet.

Say hello to the dawn with Suddenly Sunshine !
