Sunshine Riot - "Looking at the Past"

Boston based alt-grunge band Sunshine Riot is back with new music just a few months after the release of last year's Sparkle Baby 2000. "Looking at the Past" is one of those songs that stands out based on how unique it sounds. Throughout its just short of four minutes running time, "Looking at the Past" morphs into a few different styles, although all seem to be rooted in grunge. It starts out as a kind of folk or country train song, then into a nearly Sex Pistols-esque punk song, then into an odd version of ska... all with a ton of grit and heaviness associated with grunge. Despite these changes, Sunshine Riot have made a cohesive song that doesn't sound like it's wildly swapping styles.

Vocalist and guitarist Jonny Orton says of the new song:

“The song sort of exists in two pieces. The first half, I think, is the internal narrative of a character who has taken a long time to change, I suppose for the better, and is reflecting on their past while attempting to assure themselves and others they weren't too late in putting their wilder and lesser ways down.”

You can listen to "Looking at the Past" below. Loud, Bright and Violent was recorded by Steve Albini and is due out in April. For more on Sunshine Riot, check out the band's website.

  1. <i stumbled across your site by accident (i think following a link trail from someone else's site) and i wanted to let you know how much joy and nostalgia this gave me, I just want to say Bitcoin has bounced back and is currently trading slightly above $17,000 support zone against the US Dollar and the bulls are so much in charge to see BTC to $50,,000 and ahead. Its still a great time to day trade with the little you hold and its not still late to buy little BTC and grow your portfolio as i have been doing with Mr Bernie Doran for the past 6 weeks now and i came to understand that you can make profit from the market at anytime and its even profitable when BTC is bullishing so your portfolio can grow too. His signals are so accurate and yields lots of profits, using his signals has made me 5.34 BTC with my initial 0.7 BTC which you all traders/investors will see is profitable. This is the most beneficial means of trading as experienced, you can reach out to Mr Bernie through Gmail : or telegram : bernie_fx for more inquiries
