Tickets for Sunset Sons are now available…
Indie rockers Sunset Sons are a quartet of British and Australian surfers based in the French coastal city of Hossegor. Drawn to the legendary surf locale for its waves and laid-back culture, the four musicians came together at a local hangout called Le Surfing which was owned by the cousin of bassist Pete Harper. One night in 2013 after working a shift at Le Surfing, singer/pianist Rory Williams drunkenly pounded out a set of cover songs on the bar piano while future drummer Jed Laidlawwatched in fascination. The two met and decided to form a band to play the city’s nightclub scene. After recruiting Harper and guitarist Robin Windram, Sunset Sons were born. Surfing by day, gigging by night, they built up a regional fan base slowly turning their covers set into an originals set. Recorded in just four days, their aptly titled Le Surfing EP made a strong showing on the iTunes rock chart in early 2014 and prompted immediate interest among several labels. With their gritty yet laid-back sound they fall somewhere between the pop-Americana of Tom Petty, the rock heft of Kings of Leon, and the beachy alt-rock of Red Hot Chili Peppers. After signing with Vagrant Records, they released their second EP later that year, which was packaged together with Le Surfing under the new title No Bad Days.
