We got a chance to speak with the emerging musical duo from Boston who call themselves Sonnymoon. You may have heard the group’s impressive Drake cover not too long ago and if you enjoyed that, chances are you’ll like a lot more what this quirky musical tandem has to offer. This new sound they introduce to the world is an eclectic blend of indie, R&B, sunny pop, electronica and even some dub reggae that all seamlessly works together in harmony. We premiere their latest piece today along with a short interview to get you acclimated to what they’re all about. To hear more of their music, you can also head over to their official Bandcamp page. Enjoy!
Can you tell us how you Sonnymoon formed?
Our home planet created us as ambassadors to the new world. For literally
thousands of years, earthlings have preached peace yet lived contradictory lives
of war. But there’s a new energy on the horizon…a new day…and with this new day
comes the opportunity to elevate humanity to levels once unimaginable. Sonnymoon
is a place that understands that the best way to form a communion with higher
levels of consciousness is through creating music that is aligned with those ideals.
Music is a universal language. So, the two of us came together with the perfect
balance of masculine and feminine energy. Our music is a vibrational extension of
our love for humanity, our excitement in this time of great change, and our curiosity
for what tomorrow will bring. We’re very excited to be here not only to witness
what’s happening, but to actually co-create it with all of you.
What elements do you look for when selecting a song to cover?
We prefer to let the songs come to us.
For listeners new to your music, how would you describe your sound?
Floating, yet grounded. Electric, but organic.
What are some projects you guys have coming?
Our second full-length album (but first physical realization) is coming soon. Other
goodies here and there too.
What are your musical backgrounds prior to starting Sonnymoon?
Anna : The Jeff Buckley School of Music
Dane: I sat in the shed with Sonny and Trane, smoked blunts with Nas, Big and
Madlib, got muddy with Phish and the Dead, slept with Mozart, Brahms and Milhaud,
and found myself nestled in the dimensions of rhythm and sound with Radiohead,
Dilla and Flying Lotus.
What’s the transition been like from being independent artists onto your recent deal with Plug Research?
A bit like an orphan being taken into an ideal foster home, enjoying the new
guidance but fighting it at the same time :)
Any final words?
Love yourselves, love others, come say hi at our shows/listen to our tunes and lose
yourself in the music.
