We’re only a few months into 2013 but it’s already been a great year for Perth indie rock upstarts 44th Sunset. First single ‘Caesar’ is in rotation on Triple J and their first official record is due for release this Friday, 6th April.
‘Boa Constrictor Hat’ is an amalgamation of tracks ranging from upbeat pop to long, dramatic ballads – no mean feat given its 5 track duration. Their genre blasting style makes sense when you note their broad and worthy range of comparisons (The Pixies, Cage the Elephant, Arcade Fire and Group Love). Although young, the feisty five piece’s song writing and performing chops belies their age and experience, proven by their instantly catchy tunes and a dynamic live reputation of “like Juno meets Mad Max”.
Sunset 44 are Nik Thompson (Vocals + Guitar) Jack Hall (Guitar + Vocals) Jess Clancy (Keys + Vocals) Michael Blakeman (Bass) and Joseph Snelgrove (Drums).
