Southern California musician/songwriter Clo Sur just released his new five track album Blood and Sunshine Part 1 via Enci Records. The title song “Blood and Sunshine” has been released and Clo Sur says that it:

…came from a place of recognizing that you can forgive, let go and move on without having some perfect moment of closure. I found the visual of blood drying out slowly in the sun really powerful and more accurate to my experience of healing.

Of the album he continues:

When looking at the songs I had written, there was a clear divide between the collection that felt really well defined by the title “Blood and Sunshine”. Half of the songs are about reconciling with the past and half the songs are about being totally at peace in the present. It’s a title that also reflects the sound of what Solo Ray (the producer) and I created. We wanted a fair amount of grit and saturation on each element while still feeling like polished pop music.

Blood and Sunshine Part 1 follows on the heels of Clo Sur’s recent track “All My Fault,” a collaboration with French artist Nezzy.
