We Are Blue Sun

Key Track: Key Track: Real Boy
Four piece indie darlings Blue Sun, from Melbourne, have certainly impressed music lovers with their debut EP.
The title itself seems to somewhat announce their presence in the music scene “We are Blue Sun/ and we are here to stay”.
A four track EP, of which every track is a quality piece of music, that is both individual and showcases the bands musical abilities.
22-year-old lead singer and songwriter, Josh Romig is the brains behind the operation and his lyrics are unusual and catchy, married with an upbeat indie sound which marks the beginning of exciting things to come from this band.
‘Real Boy’ showcases Romig’s sweet and dreamy voice that echoes the likes of Bon Iver and Gotye, along with the sounds of upbeat drums, makes for a catchy tune that’s definitely worth putting on repeat.
If this EP is anything to judge by, Blue Sun has only just begun to rise and these lads are a welcomed addition to the Australian indie music scene.
The only problem with this release is that it leaves you wanting more. Hopefully the next fix of Blue Sun will be very soon or we may be left craving.
