Sunnbrella / Fever Dream
Sunnbrella is David Žbirka, a young Slovak musician living in London. The brand new song self-released on the musician’s Bandcamp takes us to a nostlagic 90s atmosphere, however it is not by any means retro – Fever Dream sounds rather authentic and current. The song was produced by the renowned Czech producer and experimental artist Oliver Torr. Inteligent pop with dreamy vocals, bits of shoegaze feeling in it and those lo-fi sounds is what we need and want to hear more. David adds “I personally feel that this is my best work yet and I think that it’s most representative of what I want Sunnbrella to be.”
