Brand new Sunlounger album featuring instrumental tracks along with vocal ones with the vocals of Susie Ledge & Inger Hansen; each track has a chillout and a club version. Full extended mixes are available on beatport.


Sunsets and Bonfires is the highly anticipated new album from Sunlounger. It's the first album in 8 years, the follow up to 2013’s ‘Balearic Beauty’. It's everything you know and love when it comes to Sunlounger - acoustic guitars, tribal percussion, clever songwriting, and meaningful vocals, but with a refreshing modern twist.

With a strong showing from the lead singles ‘Sail Away’ and ‘On The Other Side’, fans are sure to recognize the vocals of Susie Ledge which are featured on six of the album cuts. Inger Hansen also teams up with Sunlounger once again to make an appearance on four of the tracks.

Fans of ‘Another Day on the Terrace’ and ‘Sunny Tales’ will find some familiar sounds and styles craftily blended with modern sounds and production techniques.

And in true Sunlounger style, the 2-disc album is split with disc one featuring the downtempo, more relaxing, chill-out versions of each track, while disc two provides us with modern club-ready versions drawing on inspirations by organic house and melodic techno.

Never been a huge fan of this balearic style, but I must admit there are some very nice compositions like the title track, Sail Away, Dont Stop Me From Falling, Run, The Sun Will Rise Again and my favourite of all track caled OK :)

A little too many vocal tracks, but it's understandable since Roger said that he wants to perform these songs live together with the two singers (Susie Ledge and Inger Hansen). Also I don't think Ledge's vocal fits this style very much.
Anyway, overall the tracks are good. The Sunlounger style is still there, although not as impactful as on the first albums.
The main track (Sunsets & Bonfires) is pretty weak, not nearly as good as Sunny Tales and the like.
