Formed in 2009 from the ashes of Denver based folk-pop band (die) Pilot, Sun Red is an alternative rock band creating an eclectic mix of prodigiously atmospheric ambiance and deliberately engaging hooks.
The result of these five Denver veterans falls in the vein of classic pioneers Television and Pink Floyd to modern innovators like Broken Social Scene and The Mars Volta. The dynamically ranged and sometimes eerily effected vocals draw on unique and almost shadowy themes that include alchemy, astrology, genetics, robotics, and even the mysterious circumstances of the 19th century explorer Meriwether Lewis' death. Using sweeping, rhythmic shifts and musical dissonance, Sun Red walks the line between creative exploration and pop accessibility.
Sun Red seeks to tell the human story in all its resilient sincerity without abandoning tumultuous chapters that are all too often tucked away in comfortable pockets and left unspoken.
