Sewn with patterns of obsessive composition and stitched together with threads of psychedelia, Steady Sun’s cohesion comes out of eclecticism and history. Originally formed in 2011 by Dylan Nowik and Andrew Emge around an evolving lineup, the outfit was firmly resolved with lifelong musical collaborators Rowan Brind and Pete Victor-Gasper, and was later joined by Paul Truitt, an alchemical outcome of the living space Steady Sun had been sharing. Their third LP, largely recorded in Ridgewood, Queens, marks a large evolution from the band’s first effort, recorded by Nowik “in two bedrooms along the Hudson River, exactly 100 miles apart”. On this ambitious long-player, Steady Sun furthers their unabashedly unique and macrocosmic signature.

Recording Upstate offered Nowik some new opportunities, and the change in scenery encouraged ingenuity. Their debut album, Good Evening, released in September 2013, was recorded at Rose Studios in Brooklyn, and is described as being "folky, baroque pop" whereas Nowik sees Flora as the result of a fascination with rhythm, textures and soundscapes. There are sonic eccentricities throughout the album, such as recordings of bugs in Vermont, and a massacred crash cymbal. Says Nowik, "Andrew wanted a different cymbal on 'Waiting', and nothing was working, so he and I went from the barn out to the street at like 2pm and just started thrashing this thing on the road with hammers, making a big racket. It fractured though, and we used it".

Nowik rarely left the easel on which his artwork was taking shape; over the course of two weeks, other members made their way in and out from the city and laid down parts. The result is a lush patchwork of sound, complete with DD-7 delay-scapes, dictaphone recordings of conversation, fuzzed out harmonies and smooth yet enormous transitions that pull you in like a current as it gets closer to a waterfall. The mist rising up from that waterfall is Flora: airy and beautiful, the intangible result of a journey over the edge of an everlasting dance between delicacy and force.

Steady Sun is Dylan Nowik, Andrew Emge, Slack Barrett, Danny Rose, and Peter Victor-Gasper. They are pioneering a new genre, coined by Nowik as "Jive Daydream", and they are looking forward to sharing it with you.
