After much chaos and at least one metamorphosis, Alas The Sun are finally back, stronger than ever with a new front woman and a new record. Nuria Thie joined the group in February 2021, completing the line-up alongside founding member Sandro Raschle.
When the band released their debut album “You And Your Love” in the autumn of 2019, all seemed right with the world. Melodies were sweet, the acoustic guitar was always at hand and they held a strong desire to play in front of a live audience. The first single “Absence Of Time” promptly made it into the daily rotation of SRF3, Couleur3, Rete Tre and Radio Rumantsch. Positive reviews (RCKSTR, Artnoir) followed and the inclusion in the list of “The 10 best Swiss albums of 2019” by SRF Virus was the icing on the cake. The band was on a roll. Small and big dreams were all coming true until the first lockdown forced a halt. Difficult months followed. Personal crises and differences that were ultimately insurmountable led to the departure of founding member and singer Anja Tremp.
But past the turbulence, a new chapter has begun with Thie. The line-up change not only brought a different voice, it provided the duo with a chance to further develop Alas The Sun’s sound. These fresh soundscapes can be heard on the band’s sophomore album «Wild Honey Inn».
