With a mix of electronic dance music, playful melodies, magnetic synths and right-on-the-nose lyrics, Sunstroke Rain is a captivating voice rising from the scandi pop landscape, both genre-bending and hyper modern.
Karin Turesson (an anagram of Sunstroke Rain) has played earlier with artists such as Ebbot, Tingsek, Nina Persson (Cardigans) Annika Norlin and Robyn. She now performs her own songs backed up by Ingrid Tidvall & Sofie Gottschalk creating sophisticated Art-pop where the sounds are meticulously worked out. The music is performed with keyboards, mics, backing tracks and a big bottom end filled with swampish heavy and gurgly Moog bass.
The sharp lyrics describe and comment on our ever changing contemporary society.
Since the Sunstroke Rain debut three years ago, four singles have been released, and the tribute to Greta Thunberg ”Go Greta” was picked up by legendary KEXP. Several interesting gigs have been booked and industry people have praised the music. The first album ”Spark” was released on June 10, 2022.
”Sunstroke Rain is an extraordinary Artpop act from Sweden expressing individuality and sophisticated sonic experiences. Their latest single Mad Men is a triumphant release bound with attitude. This flowing release is rhythmic while remaining laidback. Expect a blanket of lush harmonies and groovy bass lines making this a track you will happily get lost in.”
