Although Toronto’s Sun K has only been in existence for less than two years, the visceral qualities of its sound are balanced by something strikingly familiar. For some, it could be the songs’ ragged-but-right grooves, or how front man Kristian Montano’s voice seems to simultaneously channel Lou Reed and Julian Casablancas. Sun K’s debut album, Northern Lies, produced by Cone McCaslin (Sum 41, The Strumbellas) and released March 3 on MapleMusic Recordings, is loaded with plenty more jarring realizations guaranteed to make a true rock and roll fan’s heart swell with joy in knowing that young bands still respect their forebears and are making those sounds their own.
