Sun Q
if magical realism was music
Garage-psychedelic rock, inspired by the archetypes from the collective unconscious.
Sun Q combines a dirty guitar sound with vivid, mysterious female vocals and ornate melodies. The band established itself on the Russian independent music scene as one of the most exciting garage rock wave newcomers. Their debut album "Charms" (2017) was very warmly received and praised by music critics, with many local and foreign music media noted their original approach and mesmerizing emotionality. Sun Q draw from the pool of myths and dark tales, intertwining them with the powerful music heritage of the 60s-80s.

"MYTH" upcoming LP by SUN Q
The title single is an original version of a stoner bacchanalia with maenads and satyrs led by Dionysus; another song is inspired by the mystical lyrics of Joseph Brodsky; the next track is a bad dream of Elizabeth Siddal (best known as Ophelia). Followed by a hypnotic song with ethnic-style percussion and a retro wave ballad about hippies in love. The atmosphere of Woodstock is complemented by a tune with a memorable string ornament about spirit guides – "Animals". Also, "Jane Doe" – blues-rock about depersonalization. Finally, the gloomier and more psychedelic "Crystal Doors" and "Tree" reflect on approaching darkness, terrible and beautiful at the same time.

The album presents a unique opportunity to hear the legendary Juno-106 and Soviet synthesizers, a dozen guitars from different eras, the vintage Italian electronic organ Farfisa and even the traditional Swedish instrument nyckelharpa.
"We're trying to create a special, trance-like atmosphere at our concerts. Graceful witchcraft and escapism just to return to yourself".
