"Jerry Paper's remix to Sunset Rollercoaster's 7 minute EP, Vanilla Villa, is a psych-synth journey of the mind, the body and the soul."
Taiwanese soul-psych outfit, Sunset Rollercoaster, today share a mind-bending version of recent track "Villa" remixed by friend, fan and fellow musician, Jerry Paper. Listen via Flaunt Magazine or HERE.
Known for their mesmerizing live show and epic guitar jams, the band is thrilled to return to North America tonight to play a sold-out show in DC. Over the next three weeks, they will make their way across the country with sets already sold out in NYC, Boston, LA, Toronto, and Seattle as well. Find all US dates below + here.
Recently tapped as an 'Artist To Watch' by Hypebeast, the band have not stopped moving in 2019. In May, they dropped a new EP, Vanilla Villa-- a 7-minute concept EP narrating a Sci-Fi-inspired love story. Blending together city pop, soul, jazz and “cute prog rock," Vanilla Villa has made fans at Bandcamp, Hypebeast, Paste Magazine, Listen Mag, Brooklyn Vegan, Voir Magazine, among others.
Since June, they wrapped a sold-out tour across Asia as well as a European run; earned a Golden Melody Award, (Taiwan's equivalent to the American Grammy's); and launched a collaboration with Carhartt.
