Ride Into the Sun in shoegaze heaven


For all of you psych-heads out there, here’s another group to add to your ever-growing musical radar. Ride Into The Sun’s newest mini self-titled record was produced by Brett Orrison and Alex Mass of The Black Angels fame. The Australians’ sound is within a similar musical vein, think tambourines, fuzzy synths and strong dominating vocals with thick, exotic guitar work.

Their launch is happening at the Jive Bar in Adelaide on Sat July 6, and me of five years ago is excited that The Morning After Girls will be supporting the band after they have been in hibernation for what seems like ever. It is a match made s shoegaze heaven.

You can brush up on Ride Into The Sun‘s music on their bandcamp, have a listen below, or eagerly await for the real 180gm colour vinyl 12″, which is supposedly going to be very pretty and rare which can be bought here on July 6.
