Tuff Sunshine

Garage Pop trio Tuff Sunshine unveils video for 'Dreamin' + plays CMJ on 10.17

In their new video for single "Dreamin" - from upcoming LP "Fire In The Hero Building" - Brooklyn garage pop trio Tuff Sunshine sings: “I’ve got lots of dreamin left to do / And all my dreamin includes you,” while the images portray a young boy enjoying the gift of imagination while playing outdoors, alone. Although this sounds very much like a (Lynchian?) metaphor of the life of the average indie musician in the city, Tuff Sunshine's song is too sweet to corroborate this theory. We are therefore left with a very enjoyable tune an video taking us back to the days when life was still a book full of blank pages waiting to be written. Hopefully, we all have plenty of half written but still promising pages left - because, without a little bit of dreamin', things get tuff indeed! Tuff Sunshine will be performing at Union Pool on October 17 within the upcoming CMJ Music Marathon.


From the NYC submissions: Tuff Sunshine plays Glasslands on 07.27

"All hail the one that got away" is the first memorable line that greets us from the first track off Tuff Sunshine’s album, 'Kids Know.' That declaration sets the stage for the Brooklyn based band, because they really do seem to be the band that got away. Hopefully not for long though: their sound exists in a place where the slacker rock of the 90’s meets the blues rock of the 60s, with the added benefit of sophisticated harmonies, catchy jams galore, and a wise use of everybody's favorite percussion: the cowbell. You can catch these guys at the Glasslands Gallery on July 27th. - Jake Saunders
