From the ashes, rise again, goes the old saying, and with the 2011 demise of The Graduate,
a local band done good, comes another group called The Sun and The Sea. Members Tim Moore (drums), Matt Kennedy (keyboards), Max Sauer (guitar), Jared Wuestenburg (bass) and Chris Rein (vocals) released a seven-song EP called Nightfalls on April 24 via iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon and other online options that contains instrumental demos and lyric songs the fellow bandmates worked on last winter. As Max put it they “like writing music for fun and that’s what we’ve been doing for the last six years” so the songs kept coming and the guys play on. They just finished a music video shoot in Chicago for the song “Can’t Keep Breaking Your Heart” and now are set to play some Midwest shows in support of the record. The band plays at The Firebird in St. Louis with The Features on June 8 along with the Springfield show this Friday at Marly’s.
