Album: Pet Sun
Release Date: March 11, 2016
Hamilton, ON based stoner/garage rock band, Pet Sun is made up of Stephane Senecal-Tremblay (vocals/guitar), Sam Rashid (guitar), Nic Arbour (bass) and Parth Jain (drums). The self-titled album Pet Sun is the group’s debut full-length LP. Already a big fan of the band’s last EP Feel Like I’m Going Away, I jumped at the opportunity to review their latest project.
Pet Sun’s claim to hail somewhere between Hamilton and the Gates of Hades might throw the best of us off. However, I would strongly advice not to judge the band by this dark persona they command. If they were a soundtrack from hell, I would probably only put them in the fourth circle.
With eleven tracks, Pet Sun takes me back to high school- listening to your buddy’s band in his/her step mom’s garage. “Web of Man”, the album’s single is a grungy anthem with catchy riffs, sure enough to get even the biggest prudes participating in the mosh pit. Personally, my favourite is the album’s second track “Never Quit”. It’s one that you will be sure to find yourself humming later on.
If you like the sounds of Black Lips, Harlem and Fidlar, then you will definitely be a fan of Pet Sun.
My name is Katt and I am a born and raised Torontonian who loves everything about music. I am a rock n’ roll fanatic, with a particular passion for psychedelic and anything fem-powered. I am currently finishing up my postgraduate certificate in public relations at Humber College and hope to continue to work in the music industry- helping budding musicians make their dreams come true. I love a cold beer on a hot patio, all-dressed chips and cats. I also love road trips and secretly wish I were a trucker.
