Suns Up have just released the ‘Come Down’ EP, featuring acoustic versions of all four of the tracks released to date by the Sussex-based band; ‘Stay’, ‘Just Because’, ‘Love You Back’ and ‘Do What You Feel Like’.
Having seen considerable online press support, support from the BBC Introducing team, and Spotify placements on the ‘New Music Friday’ and ‘Indie List’ playlists (with over 400,000 streams), the band wanted to record reinventions of their first year’s worth of material.
Guitarist Sam explains “Recording Come Down was something we’d wanted to do for a long time. A lot of our music is written acoustically to begin with, I remember we came up with the idea for Stay sat in the back of the van with two guitars on tour. So in a way, ‘Come Down’ is the most honest representation of the music we’ve put out over the past year”.
“As you start the process of stripping instruments away, removing guitar effects, drums and synths, you’re completely reinterpreting the original ideas and it felt like the more we stripped away, the more creative and imaginative we were able to be with them.”
