The SUNS kick off 220 Tour of Eastern Australia
With glowing reviews and community radio stations picking up the new EP "2/20" across the country, The SUNS gear up for their first extensive national east coast tour. Don't miss this oppurtunity to catch one of Melbourne's most explosive rock acts at a city near you!
The SUNS 220 voted Beat Magazine Single of the Week!
There's something about The Suns that touches what is missing in rock. Fun. Simple fun. What else would you get with three good-time loving lads from Singapore in Melbourne, combining reggae, ska, punk, pop, rock, swing, rockabilly into the most exhilarating ride imaginable? There's political-yet-fun playful sunshine reggae-rock croon of Let's Make Love with its superb breakdown, horns, 'lovelovelovelovelovelove' chanting, and chopping riff that should be the soundtrack of the new summer of rocklove. Even the rail-against-the-system Clash-White Man-reggae explosiveness of Under Control which features a guitar riff that's pant-wettingly good, and how about the utterly mental Charlene? And Hot Lips ("she's got the hottest lips on my list" - nice ...) could be the first single of the next Casanovas album; whilst Bootiful Day, DAMM! A magnificent piece of "and the sun is shining" optimism distilled into a tune of pop-reggae. But regardless, 2.20 is a ride into what makes rock fantastic; good times, fine ladies, fun, and love. It's still a mystery to me that with such a ubiquitious sense of pop-rock melody and appeal that they haven't been picked up by a label yet. There's San's epic - with tongue firmly in cheek - guitar solos and massive, utterly awesome, voice, J-Boss' arse trembling bass and Wayne Thunder's 'Marley-wants-his-drummer-back' majesty. Together, they've served up one of the most exciting rock releases of the year!
