Album Notes

“Immediately alluring, offering an inviting closeness in the whisper and croon of his honest lyrics.” - NPR

“Incredibly well-crafted songs with a vocal that reminds me of...” – USA Today

Setting Sun is a band with a rotating lineup led by frontman and producer Gary Levitt. It's tough to characterize the sound of the band as it is crossover between indie-rock, folk and chamber pop music. The first release was aptly titled 'holed up' and was written and recorded in San Francisco, California. After also living in Los Angeles, the band is now based in Brooklyn NY and is set to release their fifth full length album titled ‘Be Here When You Get There’.

Driven by simple acoustic guitar lines, graceful string orchestrations, and Levitt's hushed, earnest vocals, Setting Sun's songwriting, arrangements and lyrics were called "dramatic and poignant" by NPR. Pop Matters wrote that “Setting Sun create an Arcade Fire urgency, creating sweeping orchestrations, driving rhythms. delicate, hushed vocals and well-crafted pop songs". The sound is usually centered around the song, with poppy hooks and choruses, while mixing synth experimentalism in with its folky, string-band feel.

This latest release ‘Be Here When You Get There’ sounds like the band’s perfect evolution with a string of classic sounding catchy songs. Jen Turner (Here We Go Magic, Exclamation Pony, Joseph Arthur) plays bass on the record, along with other guests including violinists, cellists, etc.. It’s a mixed bag of friends with the sound surprisingly maintaining cohesive throughout because of Levitt’s strong hand in the writing and production.
