Sumilan / Press

"...their growing unique sound that is evolving into something along the likes of Rage Against the Machine meets Umphrey’s McGee meets White Denim meets a trip to the moon. It is something that is hard to describe, and oftentimes the best sounds are beyond written description."

“Non sono fan e quindi non apprezzo molto le varie uscite ma questo Natural Selection è entrato nelle mie corde sin da subito. Frutto di un sound snello ma estremamente articolato, psichedelico, giocato sugli accenti e sulle digressioni jazz che ogni tanto alternano la pace che il Post Rock propone. Ottimi tutti i reparti con strumentisti preparati e in sintonia tra loro, il lavoro ritmico di grande intreccio svolto dalla band è da lode non che l'amalgamazione dei repentini cambi di tempo riesce come estrema naturalità,”

"Though live bands often fabricate rather than facilitate close bonds, Sumilan’s pieces provide padding to an already intimate affair. The band members display a certain talent for anticipating the needs of the audience — providing smoother, more ponderous melodies for moments of greeting and pulsing, thunderous crescendos to aide a growing dance floor."

"Sure, they draw upon some aspects that may seem opposing — tossing in bits of metal with a little jazz, dropping the funk on some classic rock ‘n’ roll — but perhaps most surprising of all is the fact that it all seems to work."

"After seeing Sumilan perform live that first time I’ve tried to catch them as often as possible. Most recently they performed at Rye Bar in Athens and definitely put on an amazing show. I love music that makes you want to dance and enjoy yourself, and Sumilan does just that."

"FAZIT: „Natural Selection“ stellt eine ungeahnte, superbe Kombination aus Easy Listening und Prog, Freude am Einfachen und Fortschrittsdenken dar. Vergleichen lassen sich SUMILAN mit kaum einer zweiten Band, wenngleich der Forscher rasch begreift, dass in ihrer Gegend etwas im Trinkwasser enthalten sein muss, denn Nachbarn wie THE WERKS, THE LOW LIFE oder auch die stärker elektronischen LOTUS aus Philadelphia klingen ähnlich. Hier gilt es, unerschlossenes Terrain abzugrasen."
