“…a driven take on oddities, where substance meets outward-thinking head on.” – DIY Magazine

“Equal parts psychedelic guitar fuzz and uncompromising sing-babble, Sun Club’s newest track “Worm City” is sun-bleached and aching of euphoria.” –Stereogum

“[The Dongo Durango is] their effervescent introduction to the world” – SPIN

Sun Club’s first-ever full length LP, The Dongo Durango, finds the band joyously deconstructing the traditional pop song—then rebuilding it with off-kilter time signatures, gleefully unhinged vocals, and sunny hooks that sink deep into your already fevered brain.

You can now listen and share the energetic sing-along ‘Worm City‘. 

The members of Sun Club (Shane McCord, Adam Shane, Mikey Powers, Devin McCord, Kory Johnson) became a band as childhood friends over ten years ago and with the release of a well-received 7” and EP have toured endlessly ever since, moving from basement gigs to bars to opening up shows for the likes of AlvvaysFIDLAR, and Fat White Family.

Sun Club set about recording The Dongo Durango using an old warehouse space just outside of their hometown as a makeshift studio. 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, The Beach Boys, and The White Stripes.

Now looking to the future, Sun Club plan to spend the better part of this year and next on the road to support the new album. After all, relentless touring, crisscrossing the country in a van named Booty, winning the hearts of new fans with every date, is what got the Baltimore band here in the first place.

“Our beloved van Booty caught fire the day we announced [The Dongo Durango],” says Kory. “We have now got a new van which we will be naming Booty 2.0. It’s symbolic of a new era to us; a new chapter for us as The Dongo Durango becomes public to the world.”

The Dongo Durango is released October 30th via ATO Records. The band are currently plotting a return to the UK for late 2015.
