A month out from the March 22nd release of their debut Epitaph LP, Mystic Truth, Bad Suns have just unleashed “One Magic Moment”. With the crash of the chorus – guitar washing over propulsive piano leads, a thunderclap of snare, and the punchy plea of singer Christo Bowman – the band encapsulates the energy and adventure at the heart of their best album to date.
Mystic Truth is a cinematic collection that searches for simple miracles and uncovers the extraordinary amid the mundane. The band pulled “One Magic Moment” out of thin air, bottling a spark of a song that struck during an impromptu jam session. Produced by Dave Sardy (Oasis, The Black Angels), Mystic Truth came to life during fits of inspiration in a variety of locales: a midcentury geodesic dome on a desert wind farm, to a barn in Bridgehampton, the streets of Hong Kong, and the living room of the house all four members shared in the LA suburbs.
While the title Mystic Truth references a neon-encased Bruce Nauman quote Bowman saw at the Tate Modern, “One Magic Moment” nods to the influence of artists like The Blue Nile, Kate Bush, and The Cure that’s present across the record.
After a surprise hometown show last month ignited a frenzy that had hundreds of fans lining the streets of LA, and wrapping a European tour that opened “untold depths” (Kerrang!) to their new sound, Bad Suns kick off the first leg of their massive US run this month. While they’ve shared stages with The 1975 and Halsey, and played Coachella and Bonnaroo, this spring brings them to the biggest headlining shows of their career. Find full dates below.
