Multidimensional synth-pop innovators Sunset Rollercoaster are headed to North America and Europe for a tour across major markets. The six-piece shot to acclaim with the self-release of debut record ‘Bossa Nova’ in 2011, which led to extensive touring culminating in a performance at Japan’s prestigious Summer Sonic Festival, where they were dubbed “the icons of city- pop in Asia.”
Follow-up EP ‘Jinji Kikko’, which further expanded the band’s sound palette into a blend of chillwave, psych pop and crystalline guitars, was responsible for breakout single “My Jingi”, which critics called “a gorgeously arranged dream pop track that'll tug on all your heartstrings” (Indie Shuffle) that has been streamed over ten million times across platforms to date. Following a debut New York City performance at SummerStage in 2016, the band embarked on a world tour across North America and Japan.
In Spring 2018, they released anticipated followup ‘Cassa Nova’, further cementing themselves as “a blissed-out amalgam of Motown’s golden era and mellow ’80s-style synth groove” (Bandcamp Daily) who persist in broadening their horizons while crafting captivating melodies that continue to win them fans across the globe.
