Sun’s snuggle-friendly vibes will ease listeners in after the cerebral head-trip of Hephaestus, whilst showcasing the creative growth of Singapore’s esteemed neo-soul quartet.

“We started writing Sun during a soundcheck. We were in the studio that day for a session, and the music happened pretty organically. I love how the natural environment gives us such warm and fuzzy hugs. It’s the kind of love that’s truly unconditional, you know? I knew I had to write something about it. The warmth that the sun gives… it heals.” - Ginny Bloop

And along with it, a new sound.
