The Sonic Dawn has recently established a name for themselves in the psychedelic underground. Known for their energetic live performances and distinctive sound, The Sonic Dawn incorporates elements from the psychedelic music of the late 60s with their own atmospheric vibes.
The Sonic Dawn saw the light of day in late 2013, when the three childhood friends Emil Bureau (guitar, lead vocals), Jonas Waaben (drums) and Neil Bird (bass guitar) joined forces. The group was initially known as The Mind Flowers, but changed the name to avoid legal issues in the U.S., where the trademark is owned by Ultimate Spinach’s former producer.
After the first live show in January 2014 The Sonic Dawn attracted the attention of the psych label Levitation Records and the 7-inch single ‘Down the Line’ was released in May same year.
October 2015 saw the world-wide release of the debut album "Perception" on Nasoni Records, an audiophile psych/stoner label based in Berlin, to be followed by the band’s most extensive international concert tour so far, starting December 2015.
As an album "Perception" is a call for running wild and living free. It seeks to make you stop and appreciate the beautiful things in life, and break loose from all chains that prevent you from doing so. Take the ride?
