Every year there are a few albums that stand out as *the* one to recommend to picky Beach Boys/Brian Wilson fans. Ushering in 2010 with a bomb of a pure pop gem, Sunrise Highway is, most certainly, one of those albums. Drop that mouse of yours down below and get clicking for proper proof. Sunrise Highway is, simply, an inspired work. Influenced by the best sounds, Carole King, Pet Sounds/Surfs Up era Beach Boys, Wondermints, Beatles, Todd Rundgren`s wonderful "Something Anything," Byrds, The Lovin` Spoonfuls infectious good vibes or Mama and Papa harmonies, Sunrise Highway pulls no punches to hide where their hearts and affection lie - most thankfully. There is a timelessness and emotion to these sounds that really resonates with folks like us, right? Well, Sunrise Highway is a celebration to them, artfully, masterfully done.
Lovely, lilting melodies glide smoothly, crisply over gentle Turtles inspired melodies. "Not only is it a trip for Beach Boys enthusiasts, it also sounds like Todd Rundgren playing cream of Glasgow pop with a little Teenage Fanclub and a lot of Pearlfisherisms in there." - Next Big Thing.
Even though this is a New York City based band, there`s a soaring injection of California pop sun on all the material here that excavates the Beach Boy/Wilson charms so many Not Lamers can`t resist. Well, don`t, this is a gem. With its layered vocals, rich production style and inspired artistic vision, Sunrise Highway harkens a bright, sunny and joy-filled new day for you, for me and for a whole army of power pop fans. MASSIVELY Highly Recommended!
