SUSTO ‘Time in the Sun’

0 13

SUSTO’s new studio album will be released  on October 29  via New West Records. Wolfgang Zimmerman (Band of Horses) produced and engineered Time in the Sun, which was recorded in the band’s hometown of Charleston, SC. We’ve said that the lyrical skills of frontman Justin Osborne “are reminiscent of The Hold Steady or Drive-By Truckers in their willingness to wade in up to the neck in charged matters of significance.” On the new album, he continues to explore heavy topics that touch on “birth, death, love, and pain.”

Osborne reflects, “When we started working on the album, I was drawing a lot of inspiration from the birth of my daughter…it felt like rays of sunshine were poking their way into my mind and the only way to express it was through songs. Clouds came later, when I lost my dad midway through the recording. That loss juxtaposed to the joy I was feeling as a new parent, led to a deeper understanding of the brevity, pain and beauty that paint human existence. Obviously, this understanding was gained through the lens of my own specific experience, but I do believe that universal truths can be distilled from individual perspective, and we tried to chase those truths with this album. 

“When I listen back to Time in the Sun, the narrative feels like a mixture of in the moment emotional flares and flashbacks to feelings and experiences that led me to the current stage of my life. Sonically, we tried to compliment that layered narrative, with a textured sound that at times reflects the visceral feelings of present day, and at other times feels like hazy memory. It really took a village to create that sonic landscape, and I’m thankful for all the incredible friends who helped me bring these stories to life. 

“We spent more time on this album than we ever have before, and I’m grateful for the time spent pouring myself into it. I was experiencing a lot of emotions surrounding major life events but also navigating the strange landscape of the pandemic. The studio, and this album became my refuge and I’ll always be grateful for this project, because it really got me through an intense period of my life.”
