Contact DetailsSunny Pompeii
Built on a youth of slacker jams and Mario Kart showdowns that eventually migrated into jazz school and a Juno Award (Spencer Schoening with Said the Whale), Sunny Pompeii came together in a haze of tube distortion, delay pedals and summer afternoons. For two years, the band scattered across the globe - teaching, touring and hibernating - and now they have come back together to release Vinegar, their first full-length record.
With no set front man or habitual method of songwriting, SP’s songs are as refreshing and unpredictably twisted as their live shows. They strive to break down the fourth wall and bring the listener into the living room. Vinegar will be released on the band’s own label Leisure Suite Records on June 3rd, 2014. Recorded in jam spaces and houses of friends, the debut LP boils down the fresh-out-of-school excitement of their earlier releases into a more confident and cohesive collection of songs. It will produce a different reaction in every listener. Some will find it sweet. Some will find it sour. Some will put it on their fries. Only you will know what it tastes like.
