Biography

Critic's Pick "Best Electronic Band of Atlanta 2010" Creative Loafing

Reader's Pick "Best Electronic Band of Atlanta 2011 + 2010" Creative Loafing

SONEN is an indie-electro-dance-rock band hailing from Atlanta, GA and is comprised of Keith Evans (vocals, bass, guitar, synth), Holly Mullinax (vocals, synth, perscussion), and Josh Guss (guitar, synth, laptop ninja). Their dark and powerful melodies, harmonic vocals, and hypnotic beats combine to push the sonic limits of indie rock while maintaining a solid electronic edge. The group was described by Frequency Magazine as “self serious but danceable, polished but organic, SONEN’s sound is made up of all the right choices; Joy Division-esque post punk borrowed previously by Interpol mixes with something like the electro-pop bliss of The Postal Service to give the band a sonic identity all its own.” SONEN’s live shows are dynamic events, complete with a light show, an ecstatic dance floor, and the occasional pack of dancing robots.

SONEN also plays host to LaserBeam Kitty, an INDIE-ELECTRO-DANCE-ROCK-ART PARTY AT THE HIGHLAND BALLROOM. The party, which has been heralded as a feast for the senses, has taken the city by storm and was conceptualized by the band in an effort to bring the growing indie electro movement to the forefront of the Atlanta music scene.

Lyrics

Doppleganger

Written By: Sonen

If there's no tomorrow then I'll follow you into another day.
And if I cannot find you then I'll look until there's another way.
When I see you I promise to know what to do I will have a plan.
When you take it don't mistake it what you make it shows you where you stand.

Ahhh, Ah Ahhh, Ah Ahhh, Ah

Are we all alone?
Is that All that you can say?
Where are you tonight?
Will it always be this we way?

If you believe all that you see you may succeed at trapping your mind.
Know the holes in what they tell you they can't sell you they're scared of your kind.
Once your words are spoken curses broken help the message travel fast.
Like the metaphor you said before knock down the door for change to last.

Ahhh, Ah Ahhh, Ah Ahhh, Ah

Are we all alone?
Is that All that you can say?
Where are you tonight?
Will it always be this we way?

Are we all alone
Is that All that you can say?
Where are you tonight?
Will it always be this we way?

Head Down

Written By: Sonen

Around the corner
We tried to warn her
She kept a running
They let the sun in
And she was burning
And head's are turning
The move she's making'
She's never taken- Ooooooh.

She was running and running and running
She was keeping her head down
She was running and running and running
Running from the high pitched sound
She was running and running and running
She was keeping her head down
She was running and running and running
Running from the high pitched sound
Ooohh Ooohh Ooohh Ooohh

I saw her face
I got a taste
Red of her eyes
I'm mesmerized
And in the city
Just then it hit me
And I can feel it
My fate she sealed it
Ooooooh

She was running and running and running
She was keeping her head down
She was running and running and running
Running from the high pitched sound
She was running and running and running
She was keeping her head down
She was running and running and running
Running from the high pitched sound
Ooohh Ooohh Ooohh Ooohh

All the Lights

Written By: Sonen

all the lights are on
i know were open
we'll work together soon
that's what i'm hoping
and honesty these days is underrated
and what the future holds is understated

I've had enough
its all the same
we are all ready for a change
I am not looking for someone to blame
the whole world is ready for a change

our moods are changing now from calm to rowdy
our feelings once were clear but now they're cloudy
its crashing down like waves
it takes me under
and what the future holds it makes me wonder
