I recently sat down (virtually) with Club of Suns to chat about their newly remastered tracks, sandwiches, the future and more. There’s still more to come from these guys and they’ve started gigging again, so stay tuned!
I should have specified that this series of 5 re-releases is not the end of my re-release plan. It’s just the first batch of 5 that I have remastered. Another batch of 5 is in the works and I have new music on the way too. In the meantime, turn up this sentimental rocker about leaving your family, friends — everything familiar — behind to start a new life in a foreign country. Long story short, it ain’t easy.
The fourth in my re-release series is “Once Around the Sun” by Club of Suns. OATS boasts spacious verses defined by Matt’s cosmic guitar line and Izak’s smooth bass. Powerful, soaring choruses and a zen guitar solo brings the song in for a gentle landing. It’s a dynamic, not-to-be-missed journey through Club of Suns’ universe.
I have big plans for all of Songsmiths’ music, so our songs need to sound as good as anything out there. To that end, I have remixed all of the older songs and am in the process of getting them all professionally mastered. “Not Going Down” by Beautiful Losers is one of the first tracks to get a face-lift and it’s rocking! I heard it one the radio the other day and it held it’s own against tracks by The Police, Foo Fighters and other big names, so I reckon the extra work was worth it.
Here’s the full conversation as promised. We discussed our 3 year, 6 song relationship so it is a bit of a wrap up but, while the production portion of our alliance is over for now, our work will continue as part of a new phase. Enjoy! You know you have the time.
Last night I had a chat with the spacemen of Club of Suns about music, philosophy, our 3 year musical journey, their upcoming single, “Mexico” and, yes, space. This video is the part of the conversation where we discussed “Mexico” the song (coming May 7, 2020), Mexico the country and other common COS themes. I will post the full conversation soon.

I can’t listen to the keys in this song without thinking of Stranger Things . . .
“Talisman” is the latest groovy, retro, pop/rock-ish track with a transcendent outro from indie rock band Club of Suns. Continue reading “Talisman by Club of Suns”
