Now that Anna Wise’s vocals are all over Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city, I’d like to hope more folks are onto what Sonnymoon is doing. Either way, do yourself a favor and click play on their latest video from their self-titled LP.

This past Tuesday, the Boston-based
duo quartet took the stage at 529 in Atlanta. And like we’ve been known to do, the DopeHouse gives fans that couldn’t make the show a 2dope recap. On top of performance clips of “Blast Off” and “Every Summer Night” and fan perspectives, we also caught up with Sonnymoon to talk on a few topics. Including how they’ve grown from a duet to a quartet, the crazy process of transitioning from the studio to the stage and Anna’s involvement with Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city (Which I guess that explains the TDE shirt worn during the performance haha).

Following up on a successful run w/ Teebs and Time Wharp earlier this year, Sonnymoon are gearing up to hit the road yet again – this time w/ a US West Coast tour featuring co-headliner Jonti of Stones Throw + a rotating cast of support, including Knxwledge, devonwho, B.Lewis, & Mndsgn. The tour kicks off this Thursday, June 14th in Portland, OR & continues up & down the coast from Vancouver, BC all the way down to San Diego, CA on the 23rd. To mark the occasion, DEO (aka Dane of Sonnymoon) has put together an exclusive Tour Mix including tracks from the latest releases of all the tour’s inhabitants.
You can check out the tour dates right here, then check out the tracklist and link for the podcast down bottom.
Second single off Sonnymoon’s upcoming eponymous LP.
As the title suggests, this cut questions what separates Human from Animal. it opens like the dawn with the morning sun, bright and boisterous, with the energy of a gang of thirsty animals at a watering hole. Forget your responsibilities and dance around like a fool for 4 minutes and 51 seconds, after which we promise you will feel more alive.
I first heard about Sonnymoon at SXSW while hanging with No and Meezy from blindiforthekids. They played their rendition of Drake’s, “Houstalantavegas” and I was instantly hooked.
Seeing that the duo doesn’t need a third leg producer, the only way I could work with them was do a remix. We connected, they sent the vocals, and the rest is history… or at least history in the making.
Sonnymoon I’d love to work with you guys more in the future. Mucho respect. Until then, check this bling47 exclusive gem.
Yeah, this is dope.

Over the years Plug Research has been blessing my (actual) mailbox with countless projects from artists that I know little of but become big fans of shortly after. With that being said, PR just dropped a new compilation that features the likes of Sene, Sonnymoon, Shortcircles, Hawthorne Headhunters, Lee Bannon and more. Hit the jump for the tracklist, stream and download link.
This is a double strike from the talented duo, which also serves as their first single(s) from their upcoming self-titled album dropping in May.
