Son Of the Sun At Arlene's Grocery, Friday, June 17th, 2011

Outlined in Exposed brick and showered in dusty red and blue lighting, Son of the Sun marked a notch on their belts at Arlene’s Grocery in the Lower East Side this past Friday night.

After hard dancing at a myriad of Brooklyn electronic and Dub Step, some soulful willy nilly indie rock was a breathe of fresh air and it was coated in the smell of cheap whiskey, good beer, and rockers. Arelene’s reminds me what it’s like to go to small but good music that turns you rowdy in a dingy dusty way.

Son of the Sun put on a good show. At about 45 minutes to an hour, they were getting the crowd riled up. They have a light taste of the nostalgic glimmer from the uplifting notes of The Shins. Add those with some darker notes underneath, strong bass in the pedals and strings, and dripped with grunge rock.

That melodic jive flows in and out of slow blues, some jam session, and up beat rock and roll sending the crowd into its sway. All the same they keep their distinctive rhythm as  lead guitarist and Vocalist Zak Ward cries passionately into the microphone.

Check out Son of the Sun’s first single, “My Best Mistake” . . .  it’s pretty tough and a little gritty, with a sensual psychedelic side. The rest of their songs on their sight match up.

They won’t be playing in the city, but they will be near by. Check their tour dates out on their website, and keep an eye on them because their on the rise.

Let me know what you think.
