The Mourning Suns

The Mourning Suns


Poetically dark and beautifully strange musical collaboration, with close male and female harmonies, devoted guitars and a beating heart.


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.
