Sunny War has shared new song ‘No Reason’.
The musician is known for her work with Hurray For The Riff Raff, but takes a solo turn on an emotional new album. Looking back on a traumatic period, it contrasts the upheavals of COVID – a break-up, which led to self-doubt and depression – with earlier life trauma, including teenage alcohol issues, and drug abuse.
Incoming LP ‘Anarchist Gospel’ isn’t exactly easy listening, then, but it’s shot through with a survivor’s spirit, all powered by a thirst for vintage rock tropes. A wicked guitarist, Sunny War’s ‘No Reason’ seems to illustrate her approach perfectly.
The Nashville born musician leads from the front, joined by an array of cohorts as they kick out some serious jams. She says the song “is about the internal struggle that all people face just trying to be the best version of themselves. And the guilt that you feel when you’re not being the best version of yourself.”
The video is online now, directed by Joshua Britt and Neilson Hubbard for Neighborhoods Apart.
Tune in now.
‘Anarchist Gospel’ will be released on February 3rd.
