Baltimore has been churning out noteworthy music for years, so it comes as no surprise that indie-pop quintet, Sun Club, calls Charm City home.
Their positive energy was immediately apparent when they took the stage at The Gutter, part of Goodnight Records‘ Unofficial CMJ Party. The songs don’t stray far from your standard indie pop – simple major chords building and descending, complete with synchronized yelps and whoops from the members.
While not groundbreaking, the sound is solid and makes for some damn catchy songs, especially atop their mosaic of percussion. Vocalist Mikey Powers is an impressive force, clearly not shy when it comes to really belting into a mic. Even so, his voice is controlled and clear, steering the songs along.
