Influenced by the likes of Radiohead, Tame Impala and the emotive, fleshed-out latter work of The Maccabees, the first taste from SUN SILVA comes in the form of 'Blue Light'. Featuring a full brass section and built around layered, intricate instrumentation and a soaring, harmony-laden chorus, it lands somewhere between Jungle and a more cerebral, ambitious Honne. Thematically dealing with "being obsessed with all these screen-based things that were stressing me out and I didn't even realise", it's socially aware but elusive enough as not to be bogged down by these concerns.
Having quietly crafted a bank of genuinely forward-thinking leftfield indie, now SUN SILVA are finally ready to press "go" and let everyone else in. "We're just excited about getting going and showing people what we've been working on for two years," says Oscar. "We've been writing for so long that we just really wanna show everyone what we've been up to."
