Street Sounds: Vernon duo is ablaze

The Morning Star Album Review - 16/09/23

the permanent rain press"Vernon-based instrumental duo, Landing on the Sun’s debut record is a cinematic extravaganza of fuzztone and twang.

Their iconoclastic approach is a fresh take on the notions of performance and recording in general, putting creativity and energy to the forefront while making the pursuit of vibe the driving force.

The album is propulsive background music laden with driving riffs, conversational note passages and a committed noir-ish direction, which gives the songs a soundtrack soul.

It’s a strong aid for repeated play long distance driving through high altitude passes, where the twang and thump can take hold through the night. "

Billy Haner and Eric Hutton of Landing on the Sun are wise enough to know that vocals aren’t everything. The two Vernon, BC-based musicians have a plethora of experience under their belts, coming together for this full-length project of instrumental rock n’ roll tracks that hold tight to the listener, even without lyrics."
