The Mourning Suns


Band Rock Folk




"E.P. Launch"

"'The Mourning Suns’ begin spinning their bewitching folk melodies. There’s something dark and tribal about the whole experience. The dim lights, the smoke, Rosie’s wild shaman dance. I feel like I am sat in a dirt hut in some foreign land as the past and old ghosts are exorcised. A truly impressive live performance." - Rick Hughes, Posted on 20/11/12

"A Letter From Birmingham"

“They create music that will soon have you expressing joy. The Mourning Suns are wickedly haunting and subtly brilliant.” - Jack Parker, Clash Music Online Magazine. 13/11/2012

"Jack Parker’s New and Unsigned Show"

“The Mourning Suns, they are from Birmingham, and I literally just heard them last week, and I pressed play on this song – and this was called Heavy Handed, and I thought wow, this is pretty morbid, this is pretty sad, this is pretty deep, but it was beautiful and it’s serene…The Mourning Suns really got to me that time, really loved it and when I heard it I was like a kid in a toy-store, pulling his parents around going ‘I want that one, I want that one…’ I heard The Mourning Suns and I was like, ‘I want them for my show’ so I emailed them straight away…”

- First broadcast online, on Scratch Radio, Birmingham, 15/10/12 [6pm-8pm].

Rosemary Wilkes’ poetry delves into the unknown and rests in an unsettling way over the cleverly crafted music, dreamt and fashioned by melancholies own Anthony Williams. Over the past year they have created a wealth of songs, which are heading to transcendence with the help of their collaborators, Jason Butler, Tom Woodman and Ric Yarborough. Notable influences found subtly simmering in their musical inventions are Ryan Adams, Belle and Sebastian, Feist, Nick Drake, Kate Bush, The Modern Lovers, PJ Harvey, The Smiths, and Radiohead.

The Mourning Suns were recently chosen for the Roundhouse and EMI 30/30 Project; at the beginning of November the band recorded their favourite track ‘A Cloud’ with infamous DJ and producer Dimitri Tikovoi, who has worked with bands such as Goldfrapp, Placebo, The Horrors and John Cale (The Velvet Underground). The song will be released on the 2012 30/30 Compilation album, by Roundhouse Records.
