SONNY & THE SUNSETS - ATTENA TO THE AFTERWORLD - LP
Death? Afterworld? Android lovers dying in the streets bleeding green blood? Homeless girls? Dogs stranded here from other planets? What are Sonny & The Sunsets getting at on Antenna to the Afterworld, a fast-moving record of new wave synths and post punk beats?
The murder of a close friend of the band made Smith think a lot about death and life after death. Shortly after, a visit to a psychic/medium brought Sonny Smith into contact with another friend who had died. The encounter with the afterworld inspired the bulk of the lyrics on the new record – and what a bizarrely entertaining odyssey it turned out to be.
As a writer of songs, plays and short stories – Smith has never limited himself to one style or theme. The restless trend of changing gears dramatically continues on Antenna to the Afterworld, which marks a significant musical and narrative shift from last year’s Longtime Companion.
