Sun Seeker / Super Low / Sixteen Jackies [small room]
Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their long awaited debut EP, the Nashville based band more than affirm their promise. The “bunch of musical friends” at the core of Sun Seeker have been collaborating in some sense since eighth grade. They formed a loose collective of combos, playing together in each other’s bands, with Sun Seeker officially convening in January 2013. The band became fast favorites on the Nashville scene, earning word of mouth and a fervent fan following via an electric live presence and a striking collection of songs. The band will continue their extensive North American tour this fall, with most shows already sold out before they hit the road. Stay tuned for their forthcoming album release due out in 2019, produced by Wilco’s Pat Sansone. When trying to nail down their genre, NPR says it best, describing their sound as
“Southern whimsy and fuzzy, melodic rock.”
Men’s Journal says, “To date, country-tinged psychedelic outfit Sun Seeker has released a grand total of nine songs. Nonetheless, the group has fast won over critics with its woozy, tuneful pop, anchored by singer Alex Benick’s wistful vocals. After releasing Biddeford, a well-received EP on Jack White’s Third Man Records, in 2017, the Nashville troupe heads into the fall with a number of tour dates and, finally, a proper, debut full-length soon to follow.” (Sept 2018 Print Issue) 2019 Bio Blurb
Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their 2017 debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The EP – which follows Sun Seeker’s widely acclaimed Third Man debut single, 2016’s “Georgia Dust” b/w “No One Knows” (TMR322) – sees Alex Benick (guitar, vocals), Asher Horton (bass guitar, vocals), and Ben Parks (drums, vocals) exploring nostalgia, melancholy, and emotional turmoil via laidback psychedelia pollinated with tight harmonies, classic folk songcraft, and country rock spirit, an ageless approach that is simultaneously archetypal and now utterly their own. Sun Seeker has toured extensively, supporting acts such as Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Peach Pit, The Districts, and Jessica Lea Mayfield. 2019 will see their long awaited full length album release (produced by Pat Sansone – Wilco, Autumn Defense), accompanied with much more touring and festival plays soon to be announced.
