“It was before Covid, I had this big free empty studio in
the hills, I was supposed to be painting, that was my initial
plan, and I just began making songs on an old guitar, songs
about being alone, songs about failed men, some dark tales
of longing. I was reading some old western paperbacks, and
I would go on these walks in the hills, come inside and write
these kind of lonesome country songs. Then the pandemic
began, and everyone was alone now, and it felt like it had
been strangely prescient to write about being alone,” speaks
Sonny Smith about the birth of his new record.
It sounds like it’s part of a genre that should have happened:
a sixties teen country music that merged with sixties
pop. New Day With New Possibilities, the latest “country”
offering by Sonny And The Sunsets, is clearly a companion
piece to the cult loved third Sunsets release Longtime
Companion, the laid back country record which marked the
beginning of the Sunsets as an explorative project and not
just locked into one sound. New Day With New Possibilities
joins with a kind of Michael Hurley homegrown sound
but also leaning into Chelsea Girls baroque strings sound
as on “Driftin” and “The Lonely Men”. Pedal steel maestro
Joe Goldmark lifts the record into Doug Sahm and Buck
Owens territory.
