Sonny & The Sunsets to release Hit After Hit

Post Author:

If you are to believe cryptic press-releases (do not do this, most of the time), Sonny and the Sunsets are one of pop's most dysfunctional bands, and they have the worst luck in the world.

After changing his name name multiple times (including, at one point “Dave Gil”), frequent trips to psychiatric hospitals, and a hurricane destroying nearly all of his band's recordings and gear, Sonny Smith sifted through what little remained and pieced together Hit After Hit.

Self-branded as 'pop-supernaturalism', the mutating quintet promises to sing about ESP, palm readers, and hypnotherapy. To be released on April 12, this is their second LP on Fat Possum in less than a year.
