Sunny Day Sets Fire hail from all corners of the globe - Mauro (Italy) Onyee (Hong Kong), Max (Italy), Ed (UK), Matthew (Canada). Their music reflects from a pool of wide ranging influences and runs somewhere on the plain of epic psychedelic pop. The end results are bright, richly textured and epic recordings. "Sometimes you know what a record will sound like before you even hear it, and from the very first bars of opener Wilderness the multinational multi-instrumentalists that make up the lineup of Sunny Day Sets Fire don`t disappoint. They trade in a euphoric rush of upbeat, psychedelic pop which should see them feature heavily on many a summer themed mixtape this year.
Obvious reference points are Apples In Stereo or the Flaming Lips, but frontman Mauro Remiddi`s vocals evoke the same wide eyed innocence of Syd Barrett which coupled with a slew of Beatles-esque chord structures and Beach Boy harmonies combine to construct a pervasive evocation of late 60s psychedelia which is nicely measured without becoming revivalist." - The Music Magazine.
"3 1/2 stars. a consistently solid record filled with perky vocal hooks, luxurious male/female harmonies, and inventive, tuneful arrangements. Utterly charming without being precious and cutesy, Summer Palace is an unexpected gem recommended to fans of the Apples in Stereo, XTC, or any of the Dave Fridmann-produced bands." - AMG.
