Albums Of The Week: Red Sun Atacama | Darwin

This Parisian power trio take an epic approach to their turbocharged desert-rock, lacing fuzzy riffs and thundercloud grooves with punk, South American folk & more.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Spread through the impetuous fuzz of Californian heavy rock, Red Sun Atacama praise the burning sound of the desert and the Holy Groove with irresistible slashing riffs. Heavy psych and punk rock fade into their unique and reckless Chilean touch.

Born in 2014 in Paris, France, Red Sun Atacama self-released their first EP Part 1 in 2015, and released the bubbling debut album Licancabur in 2018. The record definitely established the trio’s unique, raw and insolent style. On stage, Red Sun Atacama fully manage to share the same hypnotic outburst than on their studio efforts: They have already performed in various European countries alongside international heavyweights such as Uncle Acid And The Dead Beats, Mars Red Sky, Planet of Zeus, Steak and Slift.

In 2022, Red Sun Atacama signed to Mrs Red Sound (Mars Red Sky‘s imprint) for the release of their sophomore studio album. Red Sun Atacama’s explosive new album Darwin is driven by an overflowing desert rock, stoner and punk rock energy, and directly inspired by the Andean magic. It was recorded and mixed by Amaury Sauvé (Birds In Row, Bison Bisou) at The Apiary studio in Laval, France. Sauvé also gives them a hand with additional percussion.”
