Hailing from Denmark Sun River is a three-piece consisting of Martin Rude, Jonas Munk and Jakob Skott.

Their music is based on finely woven guitar compositions and Martin's gentle vocals. With thorough eclecticism Sun River picks up various threads from the last 45 years of guitar music .There's a free-flowing, almost jazzy, vibe present on this debut album - no doubt in part due to the fact that guitarplayer and producer Jonas Munk as well as drummer Jakob Skott normally spend their time in respected instrumental psych outfit Causa Sui.

But the group also finds the time to indulge themselves in delicate pop tunes throughout the album, where Martin's sun-drenched songs are bathed in chiming guitars, multilayered vocal harmonies and put into motion by Jakob Skott's distinctive and animated drumming.

Overall the album is saturated by a dreamy, chilled-out atmosphere, with the production emanating a warm and natural glow, allowing the room it was recorded in a prominent place in the mix.

One can almost smell the wood of guitars and drums and feel the warmth of glowing amplifier tubes when listening to this album.

This is the kind of music that's perfect for summer afternoons, or for driving somewhere, or nowhere, in twilight.

These nine compositions invites the listener to join the flow and roll gently towards the sun.
