BAND: SUN CLUB
RECORD OF THE DAY: Dress Like Mothers (live on KEXP)
WHO??: Five adrenaline injected mad men from Baltimore, Maryland. A high voltage gang generating ecstasy loaded scream pop punk spiced with jumpy tropical beats. They’re touring Europe now to promote their 24/7 party debut album The Dongo Durango. I caught them just across the border, in the north of France, last Wednesday. A dazzling revelation.
A sonic rampage with five youngsters having the time of their life.
Irresistibly attractive. Frenzied electricity. Changing tempo with
every blink of the eye. All members (eh, except the drummer of
course, poor guy) bouncing from left to right and back. It took
just one song to get the audience in the right – berserk – mood.
Fun. Fun. Fun. As they were support act to Spanish garage pop
fury HINDS their set was far too short.
Anyway, SUN CLUB is my first utterly cool discovery of the year.
And best of all: preparing for this post I found out they will play
a headlining gig in my hometown Ghent (Belgium) next month.
Hell yeah !
