From the western winds came the must capture energies of SUNKIN. Sun-kissed cheeks of decadence, drench your strides of existence, in a dance of melodies and captivating lyrical assertions.
SUNKIN started with Joe Ferdinand and Hector Cottam, best friends and creative partners. Their musical journey together spans over an exciting six years with their previous project gathering a London cult following, being played on Radio X and becoming championed by Libertine, Gary Powell. SUNKIN’s debut single ‘The Pond’ is the first taste of the culmination of two years of writing together with their third member Declan Brown.
They returned to London in the Summer of 2019 after busking their way across Europe, honing their craft and testing all their material to countless audiences in Eleven different countries. 2020 has seen them reintroduce themselves with a sensational debut single and a live set of incredibly emotive songs that will entice you deep into their world and waiting for more.
With vocals of Joe’s hemispheric thrusts, the majestically built up chords of ‘The Pond’ ponders the ponderous and never leaves the aching facts of what is and what could be. A future of now – where a balance of emotional powers, dual with each bated breath; looking for advantages and yet, expecting the other to relinquish their most treasured essence.
It’s a song of a call to arms, decadent in heft and maliciously beautiful in the whole.
‘The Pond’ sticks with you.
