Vintage Suns' Debut EP Earns Early Raves: "A five-song release that harkens back as much to Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin as it does to the Gin Blossoms and the Beach Boys”; Underwater Video Premieres
(Published: November 17, 2014)

A Dynamic Frontman, Killer Live Chops and a Reverence for Iconic Artists Set the Stage for Promising Debut by Hip New Rock Band Vintage Suns

"Guitar-focused, yet melodic...a five-song release that harkens back as much to Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin as it does to the Gin Blossoms and the Beach Boys"

SF-Based Foursome Readies New EP (and an Underwater Video)

With a dynamic frontman, killer live chops and a reverence for iconic artists, hip new rock band Vintage Suns delivers on their upcoming, eponymous debut EP, out November 18th. The San Francisco-based foursome is young and hungry, with an aggressive rock ‘n roll alchemy that's anchored in the electric guitar/drum-driven music that fueled their heroes Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith, while at the same time embraces the melodic structures inspired by The Beach Boys and Gin Blossoms.

The new underwater video for the track ‘Garbage' was Exclusively Premiered via SomethingElseReviews

Here's an exclusive Something Else! premiere of "Garbage," a video advancing the San Francisco-based Vintage Sun ‘s rocking new eponymous EP. Guitar-focused, yet melodic, "Garbage" heralds a five-song release that harkens back as much to Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin as it does to the Gin Blossoms and the Beach Boys.
Led by vocalist and guitarist Nick Tara, the Marin County rockers also include guitarist and second singer Downey Orrick, drummer Elliott Starno and bassist David Alvarez. (Orrick takes over lead vocals on "So Sweet" from the new EP.) Though all in their early- to mid-20s, the Vintage Suns sound - which grew out of a partnership between Downey and Elliott in a previous band - is marked by a throwback reliance on flesh-and-blood sounds.
"We believe in musical proficiency and using real instruments only," they say. "No auto-tune, no computers. Just the raw ingredients of rock and roll."
The clip for "Garbage" was filmed in the Santa Barbara area, and directed by Eryn Brydon. The Vintage Suns EP is due on November 18, 2014. An EP release performance is set for December 4, 2014, at the HopMonk Tavern in Navato, California.
They recorded at Hyde St. Studios in San Francisco, as well as a private residence in Mill Valley, California. (Clearly, they've got much cooler neighbors than we do.) Andrew Capra of Brave Citizens served as producer; Paul Logus, who has previously worked with Anthrax and Public Enemy, mixed Vintage Suns in New York City.

More about Vintage Suns:
Vintage Suns hails from Marin County, just across the Golden Gate Bridge. The band, all in their early-to-mid twenties, is comprised of Nick Tara (lead vocals, guitar,) Downey Orrick (guitars, lead vocals on 'So Sweet, background vocals,) Elliott Starno (drums and percussion,) and David Alvarez (bass). Downey and Elliott formed Vintage Suns in early 2014, after being bandmates in a prior local group.

The band will perform an EP release concert, December 4th at HopMonk Tavern in Navato, CA. Tickets here:

More dates will be announced soon.

Vintage Suns' five-song debut EP was Recorded at Hyde St. Studios in San Francisco, and also at a private house under renovation in the hills of Mill Valley, CA. The five-song collection of original tracks was Produced and mixed by Andrew Capra (Brave Citizens) in LA, and Mastered by Paul Logus (Anthrax, Public Enemy) at PLX Mastering, NYC.
