I was browsing around on Bandcamp for some new music to get me through a weekend trip down to Newport recently, and I came across this 4 song ep by a band called Sun Sister. Over a week later, I still haven’t been able to stop listening to it! It would be very easy to think that this was a band from the beaches of California, but they are actually from the sunny(?) and non beach-like Fitchburg, Massachusetts. It is easy to compare their sound with that of Best Coast with hazy vocals and a surf rock sound.
The songs are a little bit raw, and I mean that in a good way, but catchy as hell. The first track, “Growing ur hair out“, has a chorus that will get stuck in your head and have you singing “are u growing your hair out? I think you should” long after the song is over. Hair seems to be a running theme as its mentioned in three of the four songs.
Go to Sun Sister’s Bandcamp page, put on some headphones, close your eyes, and pretend that you are on a sunny California beach.
