EDITORS’ NOTES

Sunset Sons are an Anglo-Australian band of surfers based on the south-west coast of France. If that suggests campfire acoustics or barefoot grooves then their assured, propulsive rock will surprise. “Tick Tock” and “She Wants” are driven by choppy funk undertows, but most songs are built for arenas rather than beach huts, with insistent piano melodies and keening riffs resolving into roof-raising choruses. Their chief weapon is Rory Williams’s voice: threadbare at the edges but warm and honeyed at its core, it lends everything a strong emotional pull.
