Over the coming weeks I will share an eclectic lucky dip of music that I discovered and loved via subreddit /r/listentothis, Here is no.2 on the Cosmic Jukebox the band Sonic Jesus and the single I’m in Grace from the 2017 album Grace.
Sonic Jesus are an Italian Post Punk/ Cold Wave band formed in 2012. I can hear post-punk echoes of the Jesus & Mary Chain and Echo and the Bunnymen. It’s beautiful, euphoric and sparse. Over the past couple of years they have taken part in many festivals including Reverb Conspiracy twice, the Cosmosis Festival (featuring the Jesus & Mary Chain), the Eindhoven Psych Lab and the Reverence Festival.
They have performed in Europe along with Damo Suzuki, Dead Skeletons, A Place To Bury Strangers and Singapore Sling. Their double EP ‘Neither Virtue, Nor Anger‘ (Fuzz Club Records, 2015) was followed by their latest album ‘Grace’ (Fuzz Club Records, 2017) goes beyond the past boundaries, pushing towards enthralling melodic horizons and handsomely modern pounding beats.
