Tobacco Sunburst member, Emmanuel Thomas contacted me last week with this statement:
“Hi we’re Tobacco Sunburst, two nineteen year olds making surfy dream pop out of a dorm room, for your listening pleasure. Please enjoy.”
I had to listen. I could’t have imagined a better time than the awkward transition from fall to winter to have their sound introduced into my life. Their lazy guitar plucking and basic beats are paired with dark chocolate vocals that rumble gently against your ear drums. Listen:
Besides what Tobacco Sunburst sounds like, all I know is these two dorm room-inhabiting musicians are students at Ohio State University and are from Stony Brook, NY originally. AND they released a new single today called “Stuck on Repeat.” Check it out on their Bandcamp page.
