Brandon Carr of folk-psychedelia band The Earlies and John Dufilho of experimental pop group The Apples In Stereo and indie rockers The Deathray Davies have joined forces to create Corner Suns.
Combining neo-psych and baroque pop the Dallas based band released their eponymous debut via Idol Records in January 2017 after Dufilho tempted Carr back into music following a period during which Carr says he’d “given up on it”. Corner Suns’ memorable melodies, catchy hooks and insightful lyrics, influenced by the likes of The Zombies, Magnetic Fields, and The Shins, are all evident on new single ‘The Rattle in the Room’, providing ample proof that this is a musical pairing worth coming out of retirement for.
Asked about Corner Suns’ sound, John says “To me, Corner Suns sounds like The Deathray Davies, The Apples in Stereo, The Earlies, John Singer Sergeant, CLIFFFS – all rolled into one record. It’s actually beyond that. Dallas bands I’ve played with and loved, recording engineer friends of mine I’ve learned from… I’m lucky to have people like Brandon to collaborate with, as it’s a million times better than on my own. More fun, too.”
The Rattle in the Room is released in Idol Records on 12th May 2017.
