Corner Suns – the Dallas-based duo of John Dufilho (The Apples In Stereo, The Deathray Davies) and Brandon Carr (The Earlies) – will release its self-titled debut via Idol Records on Jan. 13th, 2017.
The 14-track album combines neo-psyche and baroque pop influences that will grab the attention of fans of artists such as The Zombies, Magnetic Fields, and The Shins, that share a similar ability for sharp songwriting, memorable vocals, and pop hooks.
The album’s latest single “The Rattle In The Room” features Denton, Texas-based singer-songwriter, Sarah Jaffe on vocals. The track was recently premiered as NPR-affiliate KUTX, Austin’s “Song of The Day” here.
“I was going to leave this one off the record, but I changed my mind, or maybe Brandon changed it for me,” says Dufilho of the cut. “I asked Sarah if she'd be up for singing a few songs, and she liked this one. I'm always completely flattered when she's up for singing something I wrote.”
“The Speed of Sound,” another track and music video from the upcoming record, were both recently shared via Impose and The Big Takeover, respectively.
“I’ve been wanting to play this beat on something for a while now.” Dufilho says about the tune. “This song is mostly about how reality seems to make no sense and we're just watching, confused. It's about the Earth vs. the people on it, and how the Earth will no doubt win.”
“My original idea for this record was for it to be really heavy,” says Dufilho. “I wanted to make something that sounded like Black Sabbath, but I realized that I had no idea how to write songs like that.”
“It’s true, our psychedelic Black Sabbath concept was a misadventure,” Carr jokes. “My voice was still muddled from the years off, but John helped me find it again, and the songs really began to come together.”
The self-titled debut album by Corner Suns arrives on Jan. 13th, 2017 on Idol Records. John Dufilho and Brandon Carr of Corner Suns are available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
