Press Quotes

”Sunstroke Rain is the provocative and playful alt-electro project from Swedish singer-songwriter and producer, Karin Turesson. Having spent many years perfecting her craft and accumulating an impressive roster of artists she’s worked with, including Robyn, it’s no wonder that she felt driven to start sharing her own creations as Sunstroke Rain.”
In reference to “Mad Men” (Single 2020)
”The melody has an amazing dynamic movement that is completely genre-defying. Each line in the melody brings something new, but they all combine perfectly for a full textured soundscape, a wonderful listening experience. If you are looking for a song that is unlike any other, this is the one that you need.”
In reference to “Mad Men” (Single 2020)
”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.”
In reference to “Go Greta” (Single 2021)

”Set as a social commentary for the modern times, the music is fitting as it is highlighting. Beautifully
and electronically crafted to a dance beat which makes the undanceable subject entertaining. This
sound is infectious, to say the least.”

In reference to “Spark” (Album 2022)
”Laissez vous prendre par ces compositions astucieuses, pleines de rayons d’un soleil aveuglant qui
n’empêche pas de réfléchir tout en dansant.”
In reference to “Spark” (Album 2022)
”Bakom artistnamnet Sunstroke Rain hittas Karin Turesson och hennes mjuka och 90-tals-doftande
synthpop – med stänk av soul och R&B – är ett måste för alla som gillar analog- och retro-inspirerad
popmusik. Musiken präglas av nyfikenhet, medvetna texter och stor kärlek till att skapa spännande
ljudexperiment.”
In reference to “Spark” (Album 2022)
”The dive into “Thirty Years Asleep” brings you right into Sunstroke Rain’s stimulating and alluring
musical atmosphere.There is always something new to listen to, with eccentric melodies and varying
synth tones.As “Thirty Years Asleep” prepares to fade out and guide you into the rest of Sunstroke
Rain’s album ’Spark,’ you are left feeling inspired and ready to take on whatever comes ahead.”

The setlist

Two songs have been chosen to show the different facets of the project.

This concept will translate into the set design through visuals inspired by nature.

Fun

We are served with a never ending source of bad news with our morning coffee. War, threats, murders, climate crisis, economical crisis and so on.The initiators to this destruction got it all wrong.This song is a reminder that life is about inspiration, exchange, sharing and caring and to enjoy small moments while we can and try to inspire others to do the same. Set design will create a fun atmosphere by incorporating pink and blue strange and playful creations.
