Review: Sunset Sons

Photos by Seb Sebastian

Sunset Sons dropped their new album ‘Very Rarely Say Die’ on 1st of April, and already it’s made its way into the top 20 of the iTunes album chart. I’d not heard of the band before being asked to review them, but after seeing them at the O2 Bournemouth on Friday, they’ll definitely be finding their way into my iTunes library.

If I’d not already discovered that their front-man Rory was originally a local lad, there would have been no escaping it on the night. The band are clearly blowing up right now and are surely set for big things, but this was all about coming home and spending some time with family and friends. Constant references to friends in the crowd and family watching from a box above the stage made the whole experience that bit more special, and it really injected a deeper sense of emotion in the anthems the band were performing.

Sunset Sons have been compared to The Killers and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and I can understand why. Not because they sound similar, but because they can write songs that will no doubt stand the test of time.
They describe themselves as ‘the surfers who love to play music’, and the whole time I was there I could imagine myself overlooking a remote bay with the sun setting, waves crashing and a cold cider in hand.

The music of the Sunset Sons truly does provide an escape – it will take you to that place you remember that made you feel so good. If you haven’t already checked them out, I would strongly that recommend you do.
