Premiere: Mock Suns blaze new paths with “As It Is; As It Was”
This spring Mock Suns will bring their prog-eyeing psych pop back with their upcoming album, Santander/All that I Knew, coming out on April 29. Today we’re premiering the first single from the album, “As It Is; As It Was.”
The song seems to piece together right in front of you; it kicks off with a bouncy guitar line at the head before the drums gather their energy from the phasing synths. Just as the title suggests, there are clearly two parts here, going to one place and back to where it started.
Santander/All That I Knew was mixed by Philly’s Bill Moriarty and mastered by Joe Lambert, who has worked with the likes of Cass McCombs, DeerHunter and Washed Out, just to name a few. We’re seeing Mock Suns continuing to blaze their own path with thought-out structures; keeping their voice just as bright as ever.
