Look out for: Yuma Sun

I saw Yuma Sun on a small stage last Thrursday, they were good. They’re a very promising band. A bit rough around the edges, as expected from a young/new band, but very playful and very exciting. They have a vision and they are on their way.

They call their music “prairie rock”, and they fit the bill. It’s not country rock in The Eagles vein, but more a StanRidgeway/Wall of Voodoo (but without the 80s snaredrum sounds) twangy italian western influence. With an emphasis on the rock part.

They are right now in the middle of a release tour for their album, Romanza. Go see them if you can. 

Yuma Sun are: 

  Jaran Hereid – Akustisk gitar & vokal
Bjørn Ognøy – Baritongitar
Andreas Dyraas – Trommer
Jonas Konrad Knudsen – Bass
Espen Lund – Gitar

 My favourite from the new record is the opening track Another Day:

I hope they explore the darker side of gothic country in the future, but without losing their rock’n roll attitude.
