So So Sun
After polishing off their two-track demo at Abbey Road, So So Sun are set for big things in 2019.
Formed by Chris Davy and Freddy Armstrong, So So Sun are an atmospheric, indie-electronic duo from South East England. The band is an outlet for them to create songs and ideas outside of the realms of acoustic music whilst retaining the elements they enjoyed - conceptual songwriting, heartfelt melodies and thoughtful, progressive structures.
So So Sun’s sound has been compared to the likes of Jamie XX, Jordan Rakei, Bonobo and Explosions in the Sky to name but a few, yet they take to the stage as only two.
They bring along a host of different instruments, and often cycle through many of them in just one track, whilst looping and re-looping through live digital software. With picky guitars, floating horn lines, soaring synths, subtle samples and emotionally driven vocals, their vast and ever expanding influences are expressed through a powerful and unique experience.
Since their debut performance, supporting Submotion Orchestra earlier this year, the duo have been writing their first album whilst playing a variety of shows, including a festival appearance at Nozstock, and supporting the likes of Krafty Kuts, Chali 2na, and Natty at local venues.
