The Dublin-based group's latest track arrives with an accompanying film from Myles O'Reilly.
Ahead of their highly anticipated appearance at Quiet Lights Festival in Cork next week, Sun Collective have released a brand new single, 'Roots'.
Exploring personal trauma, and the new lease of life in its aftermath, the track sees the Dublin-based group referencing '70s minimalism – with vintage synths and a stripped-back approach to their songwriting.
The chamber-folk five-piece is made up of Caimin Gilmore (Lisa Hannigan), Patrick O’Laoghaire (I Have a Tribe), Kevin Corcoran (Villagers), Dominic Mullan (Mary Coughlan) and Oisín Peelo Walsh (Hudson Taylor).
Following the release of their acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2017, Sun Collective have gone to tour across Ireland and Australia. You can catch them at the Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh (November 22), with support from I Have A Tribe, as part of Quiet Lights Festival.
'Roots' was produced and recorded by Ross Turner (Lisa Hannigan, Villagers), and features contributions from composer and saxophonist Nick Roth.
