Dane Orr and Anna Wise are Sonnymoon, a pair of intergalactic musicians based out of Boston. Both grew up with music, Dane on the saxophone and Anna singing, which led them to the prestigious Berklee College of Music. That’s where they met and soon began to experiment with Anna’s dreamy jazz-inspired vocals over Dane’s nascent electronic compositions. They released Golden Age for free in December 2009 and soon found their music proliferated over various music blogs and even in the playlists of influential radio stations like L.A.’s KCRW.
Having been compared to a chemistry experiment gone awry, their music combines a collage of influences to create something starkly original. The music has a spirited flare of originality while joining the likes of Little Dragon, Flying Lotus, and other modern progressive artists.
Do yourself a favor and take a trip to Sonnymoon before it gets too crowded.
