AV Super Sunshine is the name of a group, of a person and, most certainly, of a sound.
The enigmatic entity creates "new classic rock." That is, its/his songs are thoroughly modern, but are arranged with guitar-heavy hints of '60s psychedelia and '70s hard rock. It's an elegantly contemporary sound that is shot through with echoes of the rock 'n' roll past.
"Yes, it is AV Super Sunshine, a group," says this out- of-nowhere singer/songwriter. "I guess I'm also AV Super Sunshine. I make the music that I do because I grew up on classic rock, a lot of the stuff from the late '60s and early to mid '70s. I would say it's from Led Zeppelin up until Aerosmith, that kind of sound. Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath, Cream, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and all of those are all part of my DNA."
You'll also hear references to The Small Faces, Donovan, The Blues Magoos and their contemporaries in the striking audio collage that is the debut album by AV Super Sunshine. The swirling electric guitars in tracks like "Chameleon" and "Skeleton Man," the atmospheric production of "Baby Goodbye" and "Girl Hey Hey," the hippie vibe of "Super Sunshine Girl" and "Wavy Gravy Baby" and the art-rock textures of "Going Blind" and "Nervous Ways" are sure signs that this is no ordinary record.
