Cincinnati Dream Pop Trio Sungaze Release Debut Album – “Light in All of It”

Sungaze is a Cincinnati-based three-piece band whose deeply studied and emotionally resonant sound floats between the effervescent sheen of early 90’s Shoegaze and the hypnotic, sunbaked drone of modern psych.

While initially started as a bedroom project of Hilvert, keyboardist Ivory Snow eventually joined the group as a keyboardist and vocalist. The husband and wife duo – like any solid relationship – brought their own influences to the project, with Hilvert counting Opeth, Mastadon and Washed Out as major influencers while Snow’s inspirations are solidly in the 70’s with Neil Young and Gordon Lightfoot as spiritual predecessors.

Film on a soundstage with an all-white background, the “Bison” video unites Booka with his Only The Family brethren and fellow members of the 600 Crew, including his mentor Lil Durk and fellow soldier King Von, with scenes of their obvious camaraderie alternating with majestic footage of the titular animal (“My life on the road real, might see a bison, sings Booka on the hook). “Bison” is the closing track on Word To LA, Booka’s recent project.
