To achieve the dramatic changes of mood and feeling that THE SONIC DAWN excel at, they mix a wide range of styles, from jazzy sitar pop to heavy acid rock. A pleasant-sounding analog production makes the album easy to approach, not to water it down, but rather to pull the unsuspecting listener into the deep.
The songs were written by day and recorded at night, during a month of complete isolation in a remote house by The North Sea. The track listing can be interpreted as a trip through the night, into a new dawn. Close your eyes and see it… Go through the hill country with its long yellow grass, to the beach where the setting sun dances on the cold waves. Slide into the darkest hours, alone with your thoughts and doubts. Suddenly come the first blue rays, separating past from present, before a golden dawn is born and everything takes its right shape, perhaps for the very first time…
