Sinking Suns.

Sinking Suns.

Madison band Sinking Suns has been around in one form or another for 10 years now, developing a sparse, cutting strain of noise-rock with a backdrop of eerie atmosphere. The trio's one full-length album so far, 2016's Death Songs, also captures the surprising variety of this approach, from the whirling, stormy rhythms of "Skeleton Man" to the Rocket From The Crypt-like surf infusion of "Headstones." This past year, Sinking Suns contributed a track to an Unsane tribute compilation and have been gradually recording a new album planned for release at some point in 2018. Sinking Suns will mostly focus on new material as they play a set at this benefit for WORT-FM, sharing the bill with Midwest Beat singer guitarist Matt Joyce and Madison rock outfit Straka & Sphynx. —Scott Gordon
