Since 2009, a group of San Franciscans known asÂ Sonny Smith and his merry band of Sunsets have been fashioning breezy beach pop with doses of psychedelic country. Â Similar to fellow Cali bumpkins Beachwood Sparks, the Sunsets’ ramshackle deliveries and half-bakedÂ harmonies invoke the free-spirited 60s ethos. Â With every soaring note of a pedal steel or a washed out guitar strum, you can practically feel the sand beneath your toes.
First single Cheap Extensions existsÂ somewhere betweenÂ Strawberry Fields andÂ Telstar, as acid-soaked flutes glintÂ over a steadily pulsing rhythm section. Â Whether you’re after desert-scorching peyote trips, late night surfing by Crissy Field or snow cones and fish tacos at the pier,Â there’s a little something for every Californiaphile here.
You can also bundle up your light blue wax with some t-shirts andÂ records from theÂ Sunsets’ earlier discography HERE.
