mix between a '68 biker movie soundtrack and that summer of love vibe
in a dreamy psychedelic soundscape. That's just about how The Sonic
Dawn's music feels.
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

have been a great priority right from the start. The Sonic Dawn has
shared the stage with artists like Baby Woodrose (DK), Birth of Joy
(NL), Death Hawks (FI), Vibravoid (DE), White Hills (US) and more.
2015 saw the world-wide release of the debut album 'Perception' on
Nasoni Records, an audiophilepsych/stoner label based in Berlin, to be
followed by the band's most extensive international concert tour so

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. Expect an album full of twangy
guitars, dreamy vocals and groovy rhythms. Several tracks feature the
immensely talented organist Erik 'Errka' Petersson of Siena Root (SE)
and Dean Allen Foyd (SE).
A wise woman once said, "if I can't
dance, it's not my revolution". Fortunately there is plenty of dancing,
lust and love in The Sonic Dawns universe... Take the ride?
