Rolling Stone
“… This five piece from Sydney slide through dark grooves and stunning instrumental flourishes to create one of the coolest debuts you’ll hear this year, a blend of desperately addictive songwriting and Dirty Three-like crescendos”

Yen Magazine
“Sydney’s best kept secret have married a number of genres to create enthralling, spacey pop”

Time Out Sydney
“The pop rock quintet play dark, nonchalant rock by weaving saxophone and violin to create a sexy, grunge aesthetic with distinct undertones reminiscent of our colonial past.” -

Cream Magazine
“Bridezilla bridge that gap between artistic integrity and nonchalant pop nicely, both in image and in sound.”

Beat Magazine
“With a lineup that includes a saxophonist and a violinist, and a refreshingly indefinable, lush, sound that sits employs the dense arrangements of classical music and the jabbing right-hand hooks of pop, Bridezilla are, frankly, in a league of their own.”

“San Francisco’s Sleepy Sun is one of those every-so-often bands that absorbs, processes, and spits out its influences in such a way as to make pee run down the pants legs of music reviewers everywhere…They are designed to explode the most expanded of frontal lobes…”  -SF Weekly

“…Comfortable, a high drenched in fog, floating inland on ocean wind. Compositionally, things feel natural and free. Each instrument as integral as the rest. Breathing, moving…” -Aquarius Records

“Sleepy Sun’s songs, mellifluously flowing between bittersweet balladry and paranoid, hazy atmospherics, are like a 2am car ride — not going somewhere, not coming back, but taking an unexpected detour through uncertain terrain. A sublime fog, the mood is both assured and undefined, leaving me to drift, to slither, through a spectrum that ranges from the nostalgic to the anxious, from the freewheeling to the claustrophobic….” -Naturalismo

“…This collective of young longbeards has become one of the town’s most beloved bands in a very short period of time, laying down lumbering servings of heavy psychedelic freakadelia and dusted Northern Californian psych-folk. Williams’ angelic voice weaves in-between a sublimely mind-rattling cacophony reminiscent of Santa Cruz psych-rock alumni Comets on Fire at their headiest…If rapturous local buzz is any indication, Sleepy Sun might be the best bet of the next Santa Cruz band to break big…” -Metro Santa Cruz

Sleepy Sun have an honest, high-energy show that ranges from hard, early Sabbath-level rock to a genuine gospel/spiritual vibe, all making Sleepy Sun a really tough act to follow. Their discipline, dynamics, dominance over tempo (the subtlest and most commonly overlooked musical device), and brooding nature evokes comparisons as disparate as Black Sabbath, George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass”, Pink Floyd and Bjork . . . and we still haven’t heard the record. -The Deli Magazine SF
