Garage and Surf Rock influenced Rock band Sun Room has released their EP Outta Their Minds. This EP is straight from their garage to us, sonically and thematically.
Speaking of the new EP, lead singer Luke Asgian says:
’Outta Their Minds’ is our newest EP that comes straight out of our garage. It’s fun, loud, and has a bit more of a bite to it than any music we’ve put out before. It has sounds that show our roots and influences from both 60’s British Invasion garage rock, as well as surf punk. It also encapsulates our life, as a band, in San Diego right now; Being broke, surfing every day, pissing off our neighbors with loud house shows, and falling in love with the girl at the local mechanic shop.
We all grew up in beach towns around Southern California and there were so many sick bands playing house shows all the time in each one of our towns and I think that sound is deeply ingrained in us at this point. For this EP, we were really influenced by a lot of 60’s British Invasion and garage rock like The Kinks, early Rolling Stones, The Kingsmen, and The Sonics.
Leading up to today’s EP, Sun Room released their the singles “Cadillac” and “Kaden’s Van” with official videos for both. Sun Room is heading back out on the road with Inhaler next month for their North American tour. Then in May, the band will take the stage at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees festival.
Sun Room played over 115 shows in 24 different countries in 2022, a mix of headline and festival slots, interspersed between supporting Inhaler and Louis Tomlinson. The band recently completed a sold-out headline West Coast run, with a hometown show at San Diego’s SOMA.
