Are laser shows still a thing? I’ve only seen them in movies or tv. If they aren’t, they should be brought back and play “Sugar Coated” by Sunhills. It's nearly eight minutes of pure bliss.
There is something so comforting about the the airy guitar in contrast to the snap of the snare on this song. It’s like the crash of a wave followed by the swish and sizzle as it climbs the shore. It’s the plop of a fishing sinker followed by a ripple on the water. It’s floating through wispy clouds on a starry night. It’s fishing from a crescent moon. And from the background it emerges, floating in the sky: DreamWorks. The S’s turn green, and you’re home.
But Sunhills is so much more than turning up the reverb to eleven and sounding like a Local Natives cover band. They’re OUR Local Natives cover band for the Wasatch Front.
We’re swaying and ping-ponging back and forth as the guitar pans from right to left more than a middle-aged white woman at country music festival who’s had a little too much to drink. We’re getting lost in the sauce without taking a drink.
It’s a rich, luscious landscape of sound being mixed together in your mom’s red KitchenAid, tumbling together until you have a creamy dough that you’ll throw in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. The result? "Inside Outside" by Sunhills.
