Introducing Sun Club- Debut album released Oct 30th – Watch new video for ‘Tropicoller Lease’‏

Baltimore’s Sun Club announce debut LP The Dongo Durango out October 30th via ATO Records
Sun Club’s debut LP titled The Dongo Durango joyously deconstructs the traditional pop song and rebuilds it with off-kilter time signatures, gleefully unhinged vocals, and sunny hooks that sink deep into your already fevered brain. The record will be out October 30th via ATO Records and is available for pre-order HERE.

For the first peek into Sun Club’s frenzied domain, watch the video for Tropicoller Lease, in which the band fends off life-size troll dolls with only their wits and their instruments to protect them.

After self-releasing a well-received 7” and an EP, the members of Sun Club became a band as childhood friends over ten years ago and have toured endlessly ever since, moving from basement gigs to bars to opening up shows for the likes of Alvvays, FIDLAR, and Fat White Family. The band will spend 5 weeks touring the US and Canada with The Districts.

The Baltimore band recorded The Dongo Durango using an old warehouse space just outside of their hometown as a makeshift studio. They recorded the album live, all the better to capture the raw and raucous energy of their concerts. There they channeled influences of fellow Baltimore greats from Future Islands to Dan Deacon, as well as drawing from their own musical libraries that include DEVO, Beach Boys, and The White Stripes.

“We made this video at a time when not a lot of us had jobs and we had just spent a month recording the new album almost every day,” Sun Club said of the video. “It was this weird in-between phase right after we finished recording, before we went on tour or had any idea of how the album would be released. It was also the end of so many years where we booked our own tours and made short releases. We’ve reached a new step where we are all psyched to properly release some of our music.”
