Golden Sun is a fairly new four piece band out of Salt Lake City, Utah that blends fuzzy, throwback alternative rock with touches of modern indie rock influences. Earlier this year, the band released their self-titled EP, a DIY effort that was written, recorded, and produced in-house, but you could never tell.
The EP is a solid and accessible introduction to the unsung band. The first three tracks— Bonneville, Electric Ghost, and Wind River— sum the band up perfectly. Bonneville shows their dreamy, accessible side with its twinkling guitars and pop-like arrangement; Electric Ghost drives up the energy and 90s nostalgia with its distorted vocals, driving drums and fuzzed out guitar and bass combo; and Wind River combines elements of both the aforementioned tracks to form Golden Sun’s overall ethos of past meets future.
This is yet another young, diamond in the rough band with endless potential. Start stacking up your Summer’s soundtrack now with a free (or name-your-own-price) download of the EP below.
