As premiered on DIY
“Fresh, clean guitars work their magic behind the singer’s gorgeously unique vocal, and in taking High Sunn out of the bedroom and into the studio, Justin Cheromiah is opening himself up to the world” – DIY
“There’s a youthfulness in those ringing guitars, aware that the carefree nature of childhood is fleeting yet unwilling to let the weight of the world crush its spirit completely.” – Consequence of Sound
“It’s intoxicating, sun-filled dream pop” – Stereogum
“a concise amalgamation of his most treasured moments into a fuller and somehow even more compelling sound” – GoldFlakePaint
Punk Slime Recordings proudly presents High Sunn, the project of 17-year-old dream pop prodigy Justin Cheromiah from San Francisco. Cheromiah’s first studio recordings arrives in the form of the Hopeless Romantic EP, which was recorded with producer Dylan Wall (Craft Spells, Naomi Punk etc.) and will be released on May 19 on vinyl and digital via PNKSLM Recordings. Now High Sunn is sharing “Joy Of Romance”, the third single from the EP.
High Sunn started as the bedroom solo project of San Francisco’s Justin Cheromiah at the age of 14. Since that first release in May 2014, he’s released no less than 30 releases, in a prolific mix of singles, EPs and full albums.
Now 17 years old, just finishing his junior year at High School, Justin is presenting his first ever studio recording – the Hopeless Romantic EP. Along with the move from the bedroom to the studio, Justin brought his friends and live band – Joe (drums), Freddy (lead guitar) and Ari (bass), not to mention producer Dylan Wall (Naomi Punk, Craft Spells etc), all of whom contribute into making the jump from the lo-fi bedroom sound into a fully-fledged dream pop record.
Unsurprisingly for his age, Cheromiah says his inspiration behind Hopeless Romantic came from his “experiences dealing with love, rejection, and yearning, and having a heart and mind full of dreams and desires.”
Hopeless Romantic is released digitally and on limited edition vinyl worldwide on May 19 2017 via PNKSLM Recordings.
