While everyone’s talking about the sudden rise of virtual work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, transatlantic R&B, soul, jazz and hip-hop duo Sons of the Sun have been well-steeped in it for some time now.
In fact, the duo — American singer-songwriter JTronius and British producer Maverick Quest — have been collaborating virtually between Texas and South London ever since they met at on the music-tech networking app Brapp. The duo has never met in-person.
We’re pleased to world premiere the music video for the pair’s gloriously soulful debut single, “Underwater Dreaming,” directed by Nathalie Gordon.
The single — which features Philadelphia axeman Dai Miyazaki on guitar, horns from Scottish group The Brass Cats and bass from Reginald Payne (a.k.a. Bass Negusis) — is out September 25, 2020. The song culled from their forthcoming self-titled album on BBE Music.
As SotS’s head-nodder unfurls, the video depicts the day in the life of a couple in love. Those scenes are interspersed with cutaways of water lapping onto the shore of a beach and assorted nature eye candy that’ll make you long for summer.
