San Diego indie punk band unleashes gorgeously fuzzy single

Indie punk band Rain on Fridays, one of our favorite groups rising from the potent San Diego DIY scene, have returned with one of their best tracks to date. Their latest, “Sunkissed,” is a sentimental ripper full of gorgeous, reverb-soaked production and poignant lyricism.

On their first track since last year’s “ERUPT,” Madi Coe sings passionately over fuzz-laced chords from guitarist Jesse Miller and drummer Louie’s impeccable percussion, leading to a catchy, soaring chorus bursting with mixed emotions. The music video – directed with a nostalgic home video charm by Athena Burton – shows the trio engaging in suburban shenanigans and exploring the neighborhood around them, interspersed with shots of them performing the track in a backyard cactus garden. “Sunkissed” is a tight lo-fi-laced step forward for Rain on Fridays; we’ll be keeping tabs on them this year as they hopefully continue to play shows and release new stuff. Until then, you can give the video for “Sunkissed” a spin below.
