Premiere: Perth indie-rock newcomers Sunday Sundown share new song, All I See Is Rain
The Perth ones-to-watch will be launching the song as they support Indigo at the Indian Ocean Hotel tomorrow, February 26th.
There's an incredibly exciting next generation emerging within the Perth indie-rock space, and Sunday Sundown are one of the few new bands that feel representative of that. Comprised of Corey Fisher, Clark Scales, Andre Bonannella, Jackson Muir and Joshua Cuzens, the five-piece made an initial entrance back in 2019 with their debut single Blue, which was soon made two-for-two with Lost Souls later in the year. Then, with their We Are Home debut EP last year, the group went even further - introducing themselves and their sound over a four-track release that really encapsulated all the excitement surrounding them.
In 2021, they've been quick to capitalise on the hype. They came into the year riding the wave of their Christmas Eve-released return Feels Real, and now they're doubling down on it with the release of All I See Is Rain, a new single and video premiering on Pilerats today ahead of its official release tomorrow, February 26th.
From the get-go, All I See Is Rain feels like Sunday Sundown hitting their stride; the group really putting all their evolution and growth behind them to release something that summarises all their talent and excitement in the space of one song. It feels indebted to the hazy early-2000s indie-rock of acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers or The Smashing Pumpkins, albeit swirled together with a slight alt/psychedelic twist especially when the song breaks down, giving it a kind-of Ocean Alley-reminiscent twist.
It's a song that feels indebted to the group's beach-side city just as much as the Red Hot Chili Peppers are to California, with washed-out guitar melodies and striking vocals uniting amongst winding breakdowns that really keep you on your toes throughout the song's four-minute-something duration; the track never really feeling too old or tired despite its length.
They're launching the track as they step up to support Indigo at the Indian Ocean Hotel tomorrow, February 26th, but until then, take a dive into All I See Is Rain as it premieres below:
