RIYL: Swervedriver & Nothingand Pity Sex
Label: The Native Sound
Since their formation just a couple of years ago, Salt Lake City‚Äôs No Sun have been quietly crafting loud, confident, and modern shoegaze. Originally a solo project for singer/ guitarist Jordon Strang to experiment with, No Sun has since grown into a nuanced and voluminous four piece.
In the tradition of Swervedriver and Failure, and contemporaries like Nothingand Pity Sex, No Sun‚Äôs debut album ‚ÄėIf Only‚Äô swells with walls of reverb and texture. It‚Äôs shoegaze for those who can appreciate the loudest and dreamiest aspects of the genre. Lyrically, the album leans mostly toward introspection and existential doubt, and Jordon’s coping with depression, anxiety, and love.
‚ÄėIf Only‚Äô will be released on January 20th on limited edition vinyl, as well as digitally. With a full slate of national touring in the works, and a history of playing alongside bands as diverse as True Widow, Foxing, and Creepoid, 2017 will prove to be a year filled with new music and touring for a young, yet quickly growing band.
