Golden Sun

Three young brothers from Salt Lake City, UT create glistening pop/alt-rock that'll soothe your soul
If there's something here, don't you think we ought to find it?
lyrics from Bonneville

Golden Sun is based out of Salt Lake City, Utah and consists of three brothers under the age of 22. They self engineered, produced, and released their debut EP 'Wine Country' in June of 2011 to local applause and accolade. This was followed in January 2012 with the release of their, again, self-engineered, produced and released second EP, the eponymous Golden Sun EP. Golden Sun’s second EP has received great approbation and response including maintaining top seller spots on bandcamp.com and receiving high reviews and play from publications and blogs in the United States, as well as in international markets. Golden Sun EP has been streamed over 200,000 times and has sold over 6000 copies.

Golden Sun maintains a simple ideology of creating music that soothes their own ears, minds, and hearts, which is apparent in their recordings and live performances. Their approach to musical creation has lent itself well to listener response in both the recorded realm and in the live arena. Golden Sun has toured the US extensively and will continue to do so in the coming year, including festival appearances. Golden Sun plans to continue crafting their uniquely listenable sound while working towards the release of their first full length album.
