Speaking Suns hail from Yellow Springs, Ohio a tiny burp of a burg that has proven to be an oasis of artistic and creative expression for over seventy years (past and current inhabitants include Rod Serling, Coretta Scott King, poet Arnold Adoff and David Chappelle). Speaking Suns released their debut record “Vanishing Country” in 2014, since that time the record has gone out of print due to persistent touring and gaining a large following throughout the Midwest and east coast. But enough about geography, it is the dare-I-say sophisticated approach to pop music that Speaking Suns bare their teeth, digging from a wide range of music that has come before them with disparate hints of Nilsson, Lambchop and most especially the Chicago sounds of Sea and Cake and the Denver based Elephant Six Collective. “Range” was recorded over a period of time spanning 2016-17, producing a smooth polished sound that is at once difficult to describe but is disarming in it’s easy going approach. While one may assume they would inhabit the “Ohio-sound” such as the nearby Guided by Voices (member David Byrne’s father played bass for both GBV and Swearing a Motorists), or the lo-fi aesthetics of the Columbus High Street scene but they choose to go in the opposite direction—choosing the polished sound akin to much of mid-nineties Thrill Jockey bands. Anyway is proud to be a part of the unveiling of the two-lp set of “Range”. Extensive touring throughout the fall of 2017 and winter of 2018.
