Swedish retro rock band Children of the Sün will release their sophomore studio album “Roots” during the spring of 2022. The six member group’s second full length is the natural progression of their praised debut album ”Flowers” from 2019. While the sound is refined and structurally more direct, the Woodstock loving hippie-spirit of the band shines on the 13 new tracks of the album. With a retro sound and soulful, multi layered vocal harmonies, ”Roots” reflects a journey through life towards finding oneself, with songs about ups and downs, love and hate, light and darkness.
On your journey through life you grow like a tree. Everything that you have been, who you are right now and who you may become, once started with your roots.
”Roots” was recorded in Church Bay Records in Arvika, Sweden. It was mixed by the band´s guitarist and mastered by Hans Olsson at Svenska Grammofon Studion (Graveyard, Soundtrack of our lives, The Hives). The album cover was illustrated by Revolver Design, who has previously provided artwork for bands as Alter Bridge, Louise Lemón and Nephila.
”Roots” is released on CD, Vinyl and digital formats on the 18th of March, 2022. The album is released on The Sign Records.
Inspired by Janis Joplin, Rival Sons, and the free lovin’ spirit of 1969’s legendary Woodstock Festival, Children of the Sün embody both the carefree and reflective sides of classic rock music. Following their 2018 success in the Swedish music competition Livekarusellen, the band released a self-titled EP and later came under the wing of The Sign Records, joining acts such as Hällas, MaidaVale, Skraeckoedlan, and The Hawkins. In 2019 the band released their first full-length album “Flowers” which was received with great love from the audience and the vinyl sold out just a few months after the release.
The song “Her Game” from their debut-album got chosen by the Swedish nationwide newspaper Aftonbladet on their list of best rock songs of 2019.
Since then the band have played on festivals and stages around Sweden including Arvika
Hamnfest, Festival Of The Midnight Sun, Putte i Parken, The Sign fest and hosted their own show in a barn out in the woods together with drummer Björn Fryklund (Freak Kitchen) Earlier this year they supported Trummor & Orgel on their tour.
Today Children of the Sün look forward to releasing their next album “Roots” via The Sign Records on March 18th, 2022.
