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.
