Live Performances by Sun Seeker

12:45 pm & 1:45 pm

Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their long awaited debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The EP – which follows Sun Seekers widely acclaimed Third Man debut single, 2016s Georgia Dust b/w No One Knows (TMR322) – sees Alex Benick (guitar, vocals), Asher Horton (bass guitar, vocals), and Ben Parks (drums, vocals) exploring nostalgia, melancholy, and emotional turmoil via laidback psychedelia pollinated with tight harmonies, classic folk songcraft, and country rock spirit, an ageless approach that is simultaneously archetypal and now utterly their own. Songs like With Nothing (But Our Last Words) and the yearning Won’t Keep Me Up At Night meld Benicks candid lyricism and stark melodies with creative arrangement and production technique, fashioning a sonic world to match their interior emotional scope.
