Sonny and the Sunsets: ‘Pink Cake’

West Coast rockers Sonny and the Sunsets display their garage vintage-style through  a forthcoming album, Self Awareness Through Macrame, named after a course his mother developed to teach at Bolinas Community Center back in the ‘70s that no one signed up for. The new album drops in late August and the band is slated to support WITCH (We Intend To Create Havoc) on the West Coast leg of their tour. So if you are going to that show, be sure to get there early to catch “Pink Cake” live. 

The story behind the song is intriguing, as Sonny explains: "I was talking to a friend of mine that was going through a big sad sack phase and she was confused of whether her girlfriend gave any [damns] about her," Sonny says. "Then her mom got her a pink cake for her birthday, but she wasn’t there to present it and my pal was in a hurry so the cake sat around for days at mom’s house. She kept saying , ‘I know I sound like a bummer but…’ and then would tell me all the things that were going wrong." Our reminder to look on the bright side.
