Sun Club The Dongo Durango on LP
Sun Club‘s debut LP, titled The Dongo Durango, joyously deconstructs the traditional pop song and rebuilds it with off-kilter time signatures, gleefully unhinged vocals, and sunny hooks that sink deep into your already fevered brain. The members of Sun Club became a band as childhood friends over ten years ago and with the release of a well-received 7″ and EP have toured endlessly ever since, moving from basement gigs to bars to opening up shows for the likes of Alvvays, FIDLAR, and Fat White Family. The Baltimore band then set about recording The Dongo Durango using an old warehouse space just outside of their hometown as a makeshift studio. They recorded the album live, all the better to capture the raw and raucous energy of their concerts. There they channeled influences of fellow Baltimore greats from Future Islands to Dan Deacon, as well as drawing from their own musical libraries that include DEVO, The Beach Boys, and The White Stripes.
