Somewhere under Californian skies, this prolific band of brothers known as the Goldensuns have shaken the airwaves with the debut of “Shook” last week on the world famous KROQ, visualized in the colors and shapes of an official music video made from footage from gigs and their hometown of Los Angeles.
“Shook” presents an imagined atmosphere of cosmic synths and galactic guitars, aboard a vessel built on power thrusters of percussion that only runs on sweet bass lines. This atmosphere hovers above LA where the three Meier brothers – Chase (vocals/bass), Jantzen (guitar) and Weston (drums) – reside after leaving their hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah in 2014.
The Meiers wrote, produced, engineered and released their 2011 debut EP, Wine Country, under the name Golden Sun. This DIY method that they employed on 2011’s Wine Country became the strategy that the guys would use on the records to come.
Their debut EP, Give It Up, has continued to go up since it’s 2016 release, featured in music-savvy press (#1 on IndieShuffle.com, Consequence of Sound, Nerdist), radio (KCRW, KROQ) and Spotify (US Viral 50, Undercurrents, Viral Hits, Fresh Finds) alike.
As of today, Golden Sun EP has been streamed over 200,000 times in addition to its 6,000 plus copies sold. If their upcoming EP, Denandra, sounds anything like this when it drops later this year, the reviews could be astronomical.
