Sun City ~ Set Alight!

Sun City should be described as happy electro!  “Set Alight”,  the title track off their latest EP release,  jumps right out at you with an upbeat melody and a smooth synth hook you can almost visually see dancing on top of the steady bassline.  The vocals pull the whole song together and demonstrates the growth Sun City has made since entering the electronic producing game early last year.

The duo of Daniel Mackey and Tobias John have been honing their musical skills over the past year by playing live festivals all across their native Australia.  This experience along with supporting similar acts like The Ashton Shuffle and Owl Eyes, have enabled Sun City to gradually incorporate more of an 80’s influenced style over time.  The use of old school samples and analogue synths have helped Sun City create a unique identity that gives them more energy with their music. This added dimension should continue to draw them more attention in today’s live music scene moving forward.  “Set Alight” and “The Follower” are two great tunes off the new EP that will have you counting down to the next big release date.  Have a listen and let the energy behind the music bring a smile to your face!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
