about

Since their formation just a couple of years ago, Salt Lake City’s No Sun have been quietly crafting loud, confident, and modern shoegaze. Originally a solo project for singer/ guitarist Jordon Strang to experiment with, No Sun has since grown into a nuanced and voluminous four piece.

In the tradition of Swervedriver and Failure, and contemporaries like Nothing and Pity Sex, No Sun’s debut album ‘If Only’ swells with walls of reverb and texture. It’s shoegaze for those who can appreciate the loudest and dreamiest aspects of the genre. Lyrically, the album leans mostly toward introspection and existential doubt, and Jordon's coping with depression, anxiety, and love.

‘If Only’ was released on January 20th on limited edition vinyl, as well as digitally. With a full slate of national touring in the works, and a history of playing alongside bands as diverse as True Widow, Foxing, and Creepoid, 2017 will prove to be a year filled with new music and touring for a young, yet quickly growing band.

Track Name: Drown in You
Drown in you another night
Visit our past lives but we're just passing by
We don't know when we'll arrive
Following the unexplored exit signs

I'll spend my time drowning in you
I know I'm fine with you

Drown in you to pass the time
Introverted and lonesome, I'll ask why
It's always you that's on my mind
If I'm your home then you will haunt me all my life

I'll spend my time drowning in you
We're up all night but there's nothing I'd rather do
I'll spend my time drowning in you
Track Name: Warm
oh honey don’t wait up for me i’m far too used to overthinking it’s really quite embarrassing should i worry you say to me i’m not the one you should be wanting i’ve lost myself in my pity coming down from the high i’ve lost my train of thought within your smile forgive me for withdrawing i tend to doubt myself when i speak i’m not about to leave i’m just not used to feeling happy about much of anything beautiful when you blush i’m feeling weak i’m feeling warm a constant state of dizzying dreams i’ll give it all i’ll give you anything you made me see the worth of all this trying i think i always knew it’s always been for you coming down from the high i’ve lost my train of thought within your smile forgive me for withdrawing
i tend to doubt myself when i speak i’m not about to leave i’m just not used to feeling
Track Name: Its Happening Again
the match has been struck it won’t burn out i’ve found my own world inside myself sometimes i disappear sometimes i win lost within the firs the tender boughs of innocence burn trapped in the in between calm above but caught beneath sometimes i disappear sometimes i win it’s happening again isn’t it
Track Name: Leave Me Behind
cleanse me in your fire let me feel the burn of your light before i fade away indefinite and cold as always leave me behind i swear i don’t mind i’ll find my disguise under the foliage a mask of dirt and leaves for me to hide behind i’ll disappear hiding in plain sight the earth will swallow me the soil will surround my skin i won’t be here anymore i won’t be anywhere
Track Name: Lunar Dream
like a lunar dream this feels otherworldly wrapped up in infinite impossibility there’s a bright black sky in the corners of my mind you’ll find me wandering into the dim lit night my eyes are glued to the celestial screen ethereal and surreal i am spiraling i’ll keep traveling into the mystery there’s nothing left for you here nothing left for me
Track Name: Ache
in the night i’m aching i’ve wandered away looking for shelter an easy escape a clicking in my bones a tenseness in my soul far away but held so close the ache is all i know i still feel my old fractures from time to time when the cold comes creeping i guess they didn’t heal right a clicking in my bones a tenseness in my soul far away but held so close the ache is all i know i’ve been trying to reach the thorn in my side for some time now i keep pulling only to find it keeps digging further down
Track Name: Ichigo Ichie
i’m the child of unfulfilled days and longing nights married the two in a conflicted bind i can never see what’s right in front of me dreaming of years to come while neglecting what’s right here i’ve finally found what i need it’s all coming back to me i don’t care to know where we’ve gone i wish to never leave that’s the funny thing wouldn’t you agree we cling so close to home when we’d rather flee caught up in the feeling i’d trade everything if only for a day to have this moment bloom
