The debut album by this darkly epic guitar rock trio from Lviv, Ukraine soars with the confidence and brilliance of a band born to spread the power of rock. Everything is in perfect sync here; the band plays as though born simultaneously of the same musical womb. The guitar can be stunningly subtle & understated (as when it rides on echoic dub rhythms with a single-note, bluesy restraint), but mostly it roars with a perfectly controlled Stoner rock rage that seeps into your soul with a haunted psychedelic glow. Both the bass & drums contribute an unusually adept element of musicianship; they know when to hold back and when to explore. Something like a mix of Glowsun, Hills, Electric Moon, Domadora, Hypnos 69, Hawkwind, Hookworms, Colour Haze, JPT Scare Band. “The Sun” is just an incredibly well-played rock album which delivers a psych/space/blues groove that’s beyond most of its peers. It’s exciting, enthralling, mystical—and it rocks like the first time you cared. Highly Recommended.
