Produced by the first producer of Muse, Paul Reeve, and mastered by Geoff Pesche at the prestigious Abbey Road Studios in London, The Sun is New Each Day is an exciting mix of electric violin, keyboards, bass, and drums, including amazing participation by Porcupine Tree's bassist, Colin Edwin and Dutch drummer Jasper Barendregt.
"Working with a team like this is fantastic," says Fosso, composer of the album, "Everyone's unique skills and talents added something special to the album and the final result is powerful. We tried to give the album one sonority, but also characterize each track with a different setting.
"For example, in the song "Suitcase war" you'll see a rejection of how our life has changed after becoming workaholics. Whereas "Insert Coin", featuring 8-bit sounds by Swedish demoscener Anders 'Goto80' Carlsson, is a tribute to 80's and 90's arcade coin-ops."
Each track captures the various passions found in the band. "Satellites" is a reflection on space exploration and technology, "'G' as in Gears" features Samuel Gomper's famous speech, "What does the Working Man Want?" and "Die Grauen Herren" recalls the Men in Grey from Michael Ende's novel, Momo.
The Sun is New Each Day is a whirlwind of sounds, themes and emotions. "Connect Four", a track composed by Bigi, finds its sound in a protest against gambling addictions. While the track "Sandstorm" is a look at the living energy that can be found in Marrakech.
"We hope the album connects you to the world around you," says Fosso, "Tracks like "Le temps qui fait ta rose" from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery suggest 'It's the time you spent on your rose that makes your rose so important.' Yet, the track "Slippery Slope" explores that unclear side of the human soul."
The band's hopes and goals go well beyond the free release of their album. "Releasing our tracks for free is a way to instantly share this music we all love so much," says Bigi, "But what we really want to do is bring these tracks live. In order to do this, we need to show how great our fan base is. So follow us on Twitter and YouTube, 'like' us on Facebook and download our free album. The more people that get involved with us, the sooner we can go on tour and share our music live!"
