Not Not Fun Records, home to a lexicon of lofi luminaries, dubs Daughters of the Sun as ‘torn-leather psychedelicists’. ¬†They’re the band that plays after the majority of the party guests have staggered home,¬†the¬†drug high has begun to wear off, and you need a¬†sublime, hazy melody¬†to lull you out of your post-party insomnia.
Lonely at the Top‘s¬†shimmery drones and subtle melancholy bring fellow lofi purists¬†Pure X¬†to mind. ¬†Synths pulse, guitars swoon at high octaves and organs bleed brain-numbing drone layers. ¬†If you were listening to the Reading Rainbow intro theme at half-speed while on a healthy supply of codeine, you may have something that resembles the beautifully bummed-out Daughters of the Sun.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. ¬†Ride it out below.
