Bands In Portrait: Sunhaze

Sunhaze (photo: Robert Alleyne) Danae and Priscilla feed off one another’s energy. Danae is the lead singer, and Priscilla the keyboard/synth player of the five-piece band Sunhaze, purveyors of indie-pop surf-R&B. Their music is a mixture of styles and different influences. It's a jigsaw created from music each member likes to make, forming a picture you can’t quite describe but feel increasingly drawn to. We settle down to talk to about their music, and I ask about the year that was. Danae enthusiastically replies that it was “busy and exciting!” Priscilla takes a more muted tone and settles on the year being [...]

Interview: Sunhaze dig into the sound of their just-released EP ‘Last Summer’

It’s extremely difficult trying to stay focused during an interview when the Giants are a run away from heading to the World Series. Especially for a guy like me who, when I’m not working or writing about music or playing music, I'm probably watching a baseball game. So there are very few things in life that would sufficiently avert my attention from a potential pennant-clinching nail-biter of a ballgame.

Premiere: Surf-pop band Sunhaze releases new single “North”

Saying that Sunhaze is merely a surf/indie-pop band is kinda like saying Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice is just a detective story.  While both artists may be very Californian in style, they also both approach their respective genres in nontraditional ways: they're each a bit strange, densely layered, slightly psychedelic and fantastically engrossing.  I'm not saying that if Pynchon wrote music instead of literature this is what he would sound like, but I could definitely imagine Sunhaze's melancholy harmonies filling up a scene or two of the upcoming movie adaptation. Their new single, "North," perfectly epitomizes the five-piece's dreamy vibe: imagine [...]
