Now, Sunset Sons return in style with the release of their second album ‘Blood Rush Déjà Vu’. It’s a record which captures the magnetic energy of the band’s raucous live shows while evolving their sound.
Previously previewed by the tracks ‘Problems’ and ‘Say Hi’, the album’s first full single ‘Heroes’ was highlighted as Zane Lowe’s World First on Beats 1. Both unifying and emotive, it’s a statement of intent for the band’s bold new direction.
Opening in dramatic style with the dynamics of the soaring ‘Superman’, ‘Blood Rush Déjà Vu’ immediately takes shape with the groove-based ‘Say Hi’ and the exploratory ‘Problems’ offering new angles on the band’s sound. That’s also true of ‘Favourite Mistake’, which features an evocative French spoken word section courtesy of French artist Lee-Ann Curren.
Like ‘Favourite Mistake’, both ‘One Of A Kind’ and ‘Take Control’ take darker twists on the band’s previously carefree outlook. And echoing the fiery intensity of the ‘90s alt-rock scene, ‘Alien’ caps the set with a ferocious race to the finish line.
