Remember UK folk-punks Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun? After some time away and a bit of reflection, the band are back with a new name and a new sound.
Yep, having released two rather good albums under the Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun moniker, the band have dropped the prefix and completely changed their sound. See what you make of their debut track 'Josef':
“We’d reached the juncture where most would wander the beaten path and churn out a carbon copy of the last effort,” says Jim of the regrouping. “Having little time for bands that stagnate and even less for being consumed by the scene we found ourselves in, we decided we would take our band back from what it became. We would re-establish ourselves as people, reinvent the band we are and restart our journey again on our own terms.“
Expect an EP to follow later this year, and catch Solemn Sun on the following two shows before anyone else:
06 - BRISTOL Exchange
07 - LONDON Old Blue Last
