“Sweet Marie” is the debut single from the Toronto based folk/rock band Sun K that have a distinctly raw underground roots sound within today’s folk scene. This song demonstrates their blues based sound that is chilled out but soulful at the same time. The opening strains of guitar set the tone, and the great trumpet throughout keeps it going. Listen for the soft harmonies and subtle whistling that all combine to make a great authentic folk/roots sound, a refreshing departure from the over produced Americana music that has populated the radio waves over the last few years.
Sun K will be coming through Kingston on October 17, opening the Grad Club for Shred Kelly. They have also been a part of the “Southern Souls” music video project, which showcases unique performances of bands from Southern Ontario. Check them out and watch out for their new material and full release later this year.
