Sunhaze Is Back With 'Buddy', Off Their Upcoming Album "Wishful Thinking"

San Francisco's Sunhaze is back with another DOPE track off their upcoming album, "Wishful Thinking", due for release on October 7th. This new track, 'Buddy' introduces a much more emotional tone to their usually airy recordings. Adding more complexity to the slated album release, the ensemble discusses the moments leading up to a relationship's demise. Allowing for an intimate approach to storytelling, we witness the end of something great. 

When something familiar becomes blurred and presence turns into memory, Sunhaze offers us a window in. With each release, we learn more and more about this promising group, as they chronicle the various moods of today's youth, allowing for an authentic progression to occur.

Critics and audiences alike can agree this is the strongest release to date for the San Francisco crew, as they continue to build momentum and dominate their artistry.


Sunhaze embodies the diverse landscape of their Californian roots. Surf-pop guitars and atmospheric synth amidst melancholic melodies create an aural environment influenced by coastlines and city streets. "Elaborate layers of harmonic instrumental flourishes, unconventional addictive rhythms, and vocal arrangements" are what define their soundscape.

Formed in 2012, Sunhaze originated from the vision of Danae Labraña, a San Francisco transplant hailing from the shores of Santa Barbara. Fellow San Francisco State alumnae, Priscilla del Rosario and Erin Walter, then added their native Bay Area-influenced elements to a handful of Labraña's singer-songwriter works. The last two additions, Brandon Iljas and Aaron Chin, completed the lineup soon after and as a group, they began molding their sound.

Sunhaze debuted their Last Summer EP in Fall 2014. Their first full-length record succeeds the previous bright, sun-baked release with a culmination of pop hooks, dynamic rhythms, and darker undertones. Wishful Thinking is to be released October 7th, 2016.
