Cheers to Copenhagen trio The Sonic Dawn on signing to Heavy Psych Sounds for the release of their upcoming second album, Into the Long Night. Due in April, the new full-length follows behind Perception (review here), which Nasoni Records issued on Halloween 2015, and which reveled in classic pop-tinged psychedelia, creating a fluid but still coherent impression across its graceful span, whether surfing through “The Mustang” or basking in the sun-soaked drift of “Watching Dust Fall.”
I haven’t the faintest idea what their second record might hold in terms of direction or movement from the first one, but Heavy Psych Sounds posted word to keep an eye out for a somewhat darker approach, and that’s enough to further pique my interest.
Word from the label follows:
THE SONIC DAWN – HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS
HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS Records & Booking is proud to announce the signing of a new incredible band!
The Sonic Dawn is a trip – a psychedelic mixture of styles, from jazzy sitar pop to heavy acid rock. Expect melodic songs with a 60s flavor, laced with dreamy vocals and delivered with an explosive stage presence.
Since their acclaimed album debut in 2015, The Sonic Dawn has been on several European tours. A highlight of 2016 was opening the notorious Freak Valley Festival, sharing the stage with Graveyard and White Hills. This year they can be experienced all over Europe again, confirmed for some of the best venues and festivals.
The new “Into the Long Night” is the trio’s most ambitious album yet. Written by day and recorded at night during a month of complete isolation by The North Sea, it is as light and gracious as it is dark and mysterious. The journey has just begun.
The band just signed with HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS RECORDS and ready to release the new album in April 2017.
Cover art and album details will be unveil soon, so stay tuned for more infos!
The Sonic Dawn is:
Emil Bureau (guitar, lead vocals)
Jonas Waaben (drums)
Neil Bird (bass guitar)
