Central Coast’s Sunsoli have today released their soaring new self-titled record ‘Sunsoli’. Pulling deep inspiration from the sun and its ever present and encapsulating place in our lives, the band have worked to evoke different colours and moods with each track. With a vibrancy and passion in ‘Sunlight’, ‘Wayward’ and ‘Where We Left Off’, to the gentle and calming sentiments shared across ‘Dancing Slowly’ (feat. Ashrae) and ‘Some Kind of Light’, Sunsoli desires to transport you into their world of complexion and fervor. The dynamic and transportive record sets to be the band’s most comprehensive work to date.
Recorded across Sonora and The Grove Studios (Silverchair, Ocean Alley, Violent Soho) with Jack Nigro (DMA’s, Middle Kids, Julia Jacklin), the band stayed proudly close to their hometown to create ‘Sunsoli’, with it then being sent to Darren Ziesing (Flume, The Presets, Lime Cordiale) for mastering. Additional collaborations on the record also occurred with Central Coast singer-songwriter Ashrae, who adds her vocals to the track ‘Dancing Slowly’.
Speaking about the album, the band shared, “The creation of this album has been inspired by the sun's light, a fascinating yet constant presence in our lives. Sunsoli's music explores how light can play with our emotions, set a time and place, and evoke a sense of nostalgia. Each track on the album captures the essence of different colours and moods, from the energetic and vibrant feeling of the morning with tracks like "Sunlight," "Wayward," and "Where We Left Off" to the peaceful and nostalgic vibe of "Dancing Slowly" and "Some Kind of Light," which play on the cool spectrum of blues, greens, and purples. To round off the album tracks like "In the Middle," "Daydream," and "Caught in a Moment" bridge the two feelings, capturing the blue and yellow of feeling like you're in the middle of things. Sunsoli's self-titled album promises to be an immersive experience, transporting you to a world of colors and emotions.”
With an album in their back pockets, Sunsoli will also be performing a National tour in celebration of its release. Across September - December, the band will be playing Wollongong, Canberra, Geelong, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Gosford, and more, sharing stages with some of their favorite local acts and taking the opportunity to reach their fans one-on-one, sharing songs from ‘Sunsoli’ for the first time.
Previously known as The Sea Gypsies, the band grew a reverent reputation as a captivating live act, sharing stages with the likes of Birds of Tokyo, Ocean Alley, Winston Surfshirt, and The Reubens, as well as landing on festival lineups at Lost Paradise, Mountain Sounds and Beyond the Valley. With an impressive 1.5 million+ streams across DSPs, the indie-rock darlings also saw success across triple j, with previous singles ‘Daydream’ and ‘Mexico’ grabbing airplay, as well as strong reviews across triple j Unearthed. Their debut album under The Sea Gypsies saw the band land praise from media across Newcastle Herald, The Point Music News, Backseat Mafia, and more.
