Artist: The Sunset Curse
Album: Artificial Heart
Street Date: June 29, 2010

This Denver-based multi-instrumental trio infuse deep electronic roots strategically blended with tight, cutting drum work, melodic, spacious dual guitars, syncopated proggy synths, and raw emotional vocals.

Chris Nelson (vox, guitar, keys) Bradley Bakewell (bass, guitar, vox) and Cody York (drums, synth, programs) host a grab bag of instrumentation that coalesces to build ghostly, polyrhythmic perspectives on dance, rock, psychedelia and contemporary ambient excursions.

Standout track "Flavor," commands the most attention, pulling from every possible corner of the band's seemingly limitless creative well. A healthy dose of dance beats fused with punk-rock sensibilities spike the same vein as artist's like- At the Drive In, LCD Soundsystem, Muse and MGMT

About "Artificial Heart"

Artificial heart is the band's first attempt at writing and recording a full-length album, and though faced with hardships from many angles, The Sunset Curse embraced the difficulties and channeled their most heartfelt emotions into the honest piece of music you now hold in your hand.

There were many life-altering events that challenged the band during the recording process, which influenced the music directly; not the least of which was the loss of Christopher Owen Nelson's father, inspiring the heartfelt and hopeful song, "Finally Free".

This record is a journey through struggles with personal demons; learning to let go of the past; and a myriad of personal confrontations that all of the members, (and indeed, all of humanity) face head on. This record is the absolute truth. The Sunset Curse wear no masks, and the music you hear is an in depth portrait of each of their lives.

The title track, "Artificial Heart", tells the story of a sexy, but dangerous relationship with addiction, while "Flavor" speaks of a sensual, physical connection. "MSFBF" raises a middle finger to the soul-less drag-and-click relationships of our time, and hopes raise questions about how it will affect art and culture in the future.

The Sunset Curse is available for interviews and would also be thrilled to record station liners for your radio programming.
