Maui Tears Out 1/28, Available for Pre-Order Now
“…a shape-shifting mess of psych-garage slime.” — SPIN
“It’s got a fascinating kind of shimmering psychedelic aura, but if you strip away all the guitar fuzz and backwards echo, you’d still have a taut, catchy song that a much less trippy power-pop band could have a field day with.” — Esquire
Psych-rockers Sleepy Sun will release their fourth LP, Maui Tears, on January 28th via Dine Alone Records. The band offered a sneak peek at two album tracks with their recent 7″, and today, they’ve shared new single “Galaxy Punk,” one of the catchiest songs on the record. You can stream “Galaxy Punk” where it premiered with Esquire or below, and it’s also available as an instant grat with all Maui Tears pre-orders.

Built on decade-long friendships, Sleepy Sun already has three LPs, a handful of singles & EPs, and miles of touring under their belt. Maui Tears finds the band pushing boundaries with their experimental songwriting, exploring new territory and showcasing the diversity of their sound. A combination of catchy, psych-tinged melodies, softer, dreamier tracks, and some of the band’s heaviest material to date, the album is a dynamic collection of songs from a new, bolder version of a band that’s torn down walls and built up confidence.
Having just wrapped up a tour with City and Colour, Sleepy Sun has also shared stages with bands like Arctic Monkeys and the Black Angels. Stay tuned for 2014 dates and more new music from Maui Tears, coming soon!
