Los Angeles-based band Bad Suns share a new video for the song “One Magic Moment,” a track off their recently released album Mystic Truth, a synthesis of driving rock romanticism and new wave texture that the LA Times describes as "post-punk with a hint of the Boss." The album debuted #21 on the Current Alternative Albums chart, #34 on the Current Rock Albums chart, and #145 on the Billboard 200.
“We wanted to capture the essence and energy of the song, put through a dreamlike filter, where details and continuity are obscured in favor of a more visceral experience,” says vocalist Christo Bowman of the video.
Produced by Dave Sardy (Oasis, The Black Angels), Mystic Truth came to life during fits of inspiration in a variety of locales: a midcentury geodesic dome on a wind farm, a barn in Bridgehampton, the streets of Hong Kong, and the living room of the house all four members shared in the LA suburbs. The result is a collection that gathers disparate influences — from artist Bruce Nauman and magical realist author Mikhail Bulgakov to Eno-era U2 and The Blue Nile — into a potent, expansive whole.
Bad Suns will perform at Lollapalooza in Chicago this summer before beginning a headline tour on September 7. Full dates below.
Bad Suns are Christo Bowman (vocals / guitar), Gavin Bennett (bass), Miles Morris (drums) and Ray Libby (guitar).
