Luke Eccles (of Sun Blind)
Sun Blind the band formerly known as Awaking Mercury, takes an even more personal and polished turn in this full length album. The lyrics are largely autobiographical in substance, lending a sense of concrete immediacy to the album; the topical continuity makes it feel as if we are listening to a concept album. The weight of these personal lyrics, and their raw vocal delivery, find their balance in the production, with tight drum beats, substantial bass lines, and soaring lead guitars. “Sun Blind” is an emotional journey, and a satisfying one at that. This show Their sing Luke will be playing a couple songs from their new album and some unrealized acoustic tunes! Check them out ahead of time on iTunes and Spotify.
