Formed in 2016 by guitarist John Farris and drummer Tom Wolfson, Sooner blends shoegaze, dream pop, and alternative rock in a pop style that is both lush and energetic. Lead singer Federica Tassano provides a haunting, ethereal focal point while Andrew Possehl anchors the rhythm section on bass. Sooner plays in Brooklyn and the NYC area and will be releasing their first full-length LP in 2020.

“...The band does an excellent job of flashing some serious shoegazing in between their jangly pop tunes. Snappy drum beats and easy-going vocal melodies make way for furious guitar drones and elaborate basslines drenched in fuzz… The ease with which the band switches up their intensity keeps the listener engaged, while sonic layers are added and removed as their songs progress...”
- The Deli Magazine

“…Somewhere between hazy shoegaze and driving alt-rock with a splattering of beautifully intense dream pop courtesy of it’s stunning vocalisations...”
