Memphis six-piece Spaceface is led by Jake Ingalls, a touring guitarist and keyboardist of The Flaming Lips, which makes a lot of sense the second one puts on today’s featured song. “Sun Kids” is hazy, psychedelic pop music, elegantly composed. It may be these tumultuous times, and the fact that so much protest music was being made during periods of similar unrest, like the ’60s, that when Ingalls and band sing about “children of the sun” it seems they’re making political and social commentary. Yet, even while rock ‘n’ roll has always confronted injustice, it’s also a form of escapism from ugly realities. As Spaceface’s soundscapes and extended dreamy harmonies float around your headphones, it’s easy to forget the fact that it’s a truly bizarre 2017 so far"
