Anna Wise has one of the most enchanting voices I have ever heard. The quality about Sonnymoon, previously mentioned here, that draws my attention to them again and again is their ultra eerie & indefinable sound. They are masters at channeling several styles at once to create their own individual sound.
I discovered the super duo through their Golden Age project, which I fell in love with along with their self-titled LP Sonnymoon. They get me through long hours of transit, and sound especially magical while up in the clouds during a flight, or on a train. I highly recommend both of their projects. True experimentalists, I honestly believe that Sonnymoon is the sound of the future, and not one far-off either. As time goes on, I think the fact that I have not heard anything like them before might be the very reason they are not already “major” artists you can see all over every music store. The world will catch wind soon enough.
For now, take a listen to the second of the first two songs they have released in preparation for their new album, The Courage of Present Times. The words echoed on The Fear are so divinely relevant and as haunting as the way she sings them. Great music is always the most honest. Feel it for yourself and follow the links to keep up with Sonnymoon!
