A few weeks ago, we played a really fun set at the Woodbury Fall Arts Festival. This was a truly awesome event, showcasing over 300 local artists. If you’re in the area and you didn’t check it out this year, make sure you stop by next year (hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to play it again). Read more…
Certainly there’s been a lot of thought put into the bands songs so far; the subject matter of their one EP covers everything from soldiers to sweatshop workers to metaphysics. Restrained and subtle, but at the same time warm and genuine, The Naked Sun stand out in amongst the crowds of rock bands by simply keeping it simple.
Nori Bell-Bhuiyan over at “Handcrafted Music Blog” The OWL Mag gave the EP a nice little shout-out.
Thanks to the support of all our friends, family, and fans, we won The Deli Philadelphia’s Featured Artist Poll! Our reward is a full-length Q&A feature on the Philly arm of this national indie music blog.
…The usual suspects are here: acoustic guitar, organ, pedal steel (or its electric guitar approximation), and earnest tenor vocals with a bit of raw timbre. The thing to celebrate in The Naked Sun is its arrangement of these tried and true parts, creating memorable moments and melodies out of a deep genre knowledge.
Check out Stephen Carradini’s take on our debut EP, Space, Place, and Time (along with David Ramirez’s The Rooster). Stephen writes “unusual words about underappreciated music” over at Independent Clauses.
The Naked Sun formed in 2011 when the members were posting on Craigslist to find other local musicians. While what they found wasn’t what they had gone in search of, it was a promising new band with a classic sound. Add in a reference to classic sci fi lit, and I’m one happy clam.
Thanks to Lisa Regula Meyer for giving the EP a spin. Check out her full review over at Ear to the Ground Music.
We’re excited to announce that “Holdin’ Back the Heart” from our Key Studio Session back in February made The Key Studio Sessions Vol. 7, along with some ridiculously talented local artists–including Waxahatchee, Pissed Jeans, Ruby The Hatchet, and Modern Inventors. Check out the latest compilation from Philly’s premier local music blog below. Read more…
For a first outing, no effort is wasted nor is there any misstep to be heard on this debut EP. Space, Place, and Time is a concise yet condensed showcase…
The kind folks over at music blog Bucket Full of Nails have the distinct honor of being the first to review our debut EP, Space, Place, and Time.

It’s just an all around well-written, creative, and thoughtful music review. So be sure to browse around the site and check out some of his other work.

The topics ranged wide during this interview with podcasters Your Local Note. Listen to the four tracks from the new Space, Place, and Time EP, interspersed with some deep thoughts with Drew Harris and witty commentary from pretentious English majors with beards. Many thanks to Mike and RJ, who are doing some awesome things to support local music.
We’re very excited to open up for some good friends of ours, Red Sammy, at The Fire on Wednesday, April 3. These guys are from Baltimore, so come on out and show them Philly love. Check out Facebook for the details.
We met on Craigslist, ha! They were looking for a female country singer, I was looking for young rock drunks. I guess you can say that we settled.
So opens Drew’s recent interview with online arts magazine Manufactured Dissent.
