Premiere: Sunnsetter lifts themselves out of a dark place on the shimmering ‘Surely Everything’s Alright’ ahead of new album next month

This is one of those songs you can get lost in, or pull around you for some extra warmth and feel fine for three-and-a-half minutes. This is new from Ontario’s Sunnsetter, and if warm, shoegazey textures are your kind of thing then you’re gonna love their new record.

It’s a solo project from Andrew McLeod, who did just about everything on The Best That I Can Be, out at the end of next month. New single ‘Surely Everything’s Alright’ is out tomorrow, an optimistic song born from hard times. Per McLeod: “I spent many years in a dark place, weighed down by an underlying depression. A consistent and predictable up and down from various mental health issues for the majority of my life. This song and the subject matter of this album as a whole is an attempt at reconciling that behaviour and learning how to live with and change it for the better of myself and those around me. Reminding myself that surely everything is alright, even when I’ve tricked myself into believing otherwise.”

We’ve got an early listen; tune in below. The album’s out Friday March 31st via Paper Bag Records.
