Sooner the Sunset — Sooner the Sunset


Joshua Boydston October 10th, 2012

Oklahoma City’s own Graham Colton is one of the most formidable solo artists the Sooner state has to offer, and he’s even more impressive as half of the new duo Sooner the Sunset, having found his musical soul mate in vocalist Lindsey Ray.

Their chemistry is undeniable, and from the sound of this self-titled debut EP, the two bring out the very best of each other — no small feat for artists who are incredible in their own right.

The pair finds the perfect blend of pop and indie folk, crafting songs that recall the likes of Mumford & Sons or The Lumineers, and seem destined for similar success.

Lead track “All Because of You” sounds bound to soundtrack some bubbly romantic-comedy trailer, the sort of infectious and charming ditty that no one can resist. “Mark Set Go” and “Long After I’m Gone” favors country pop to still strong results before the gentle lullaby “Helium Heart” closes the disc down.

There’s no weak moment in this debut; it’s pure, sunny, Southern goodness tight and simple enough for anyone to enjoy. —Joshua Boydston
