VIDEO: “Children of The Sun” –
Forever promoting belief in the transcendence of time and space, Golden Dawn Arkestra continues to experiment with a myriad of musical styles & genres, all the while remaining true to their expansive cinematic sound.
Since the advent of the digital age and streaming services most of us listen to musical genres in totally random sequences and yet bands have come to cling even more to their given genre. Not so with Golden Dawn Arkestra.
Children of the Sun (Nine Mile Records) takes listeners on a world tour from Brazil to Berlin, sweeping past Punk & Psych Rock, plunging into Disco & Soul, all the while romancing the World Beat. The Arkestra returned to their favorite recording studio perched on the cliffs of the Colorado River for this album and once again employed Erik Wofford (The Black Angels, Explosions in the Sky, My Morning Jacket) to engineer and produce. Erik’s sense of space echos and reverberation being such a beautiful fit.
The Golden Dawn Arkestra will be touring the United States, Europe and South America in 2018 bringing their unique visual spectacle and healing vibrations across the globe.
“Not so much a band as a cult making music that’s truly psychedelic. Less fuzz, more deep grooves.” -NME
“A crazy and wonderful mix of sight and sound, with big, bold costumes and music that meets somewhere between Sun Ra and Sly Stone.” -NPR
“The wild melange of Afrobeat, P-Funk, and Sun Ra cosmic jazz proffered by the Golden Dawn Arkestra is handcrafted for the stage, where costumes and dancers catch the eye and the band/audience energy exchange shoots for the stars.” -Austin Chronicle
