Bio

Sunset Place are a four-piece neo soul/indie band from Sydney with a passion for evoking emotions and having a good time. Whilst keeping you relaxed with their calming presence, Sunset Place invigorates your senses leaving you wanting more.

Delivering an eclectic musical concoction, Sunset Place twist influences from a wide range of artists such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Erykah Badu, Jeff Buckley, and Joni Mitchell. With soulful harmonies and groovy rhythms which contrast their brooding, powerful lyrics, Sunset Place brew a unique sound that continues to captivate audiences around Sydney.

Despite releasing their debut single in 2021, Sunset Place have a rich history carved into their sound. Spending the majority of their previous years working on and perfecting their unique voice, they found themselves playing shows around Sydney from as early as 2019. Selling out a headlining show at The Hideaway Bar in October 2020, they have continued to make a name for themselves inside the Sydney music scene.

2021 is filled with excitement for Sunset Place. With their upcoming single release, ‘Still Mourning’, scheduled for release on the 30th April, the band explores the personal, yet universal, struggle of reaching out to others in times of need. The single evokes a sound reminiscent of old-school soul music, featuring strong rhythms and layered instruments which crescendo into a powerful climax with soaring vocals backed by smooth harmonies.
