NYC's Native Sun is returning to Chicago to play a FREE ANCHR Magazine showcase at Cole's with Cold Beaches.
Native Sun is a four-piece rock n roll band from New York City. Loud and urgent, their music breeds a beautiful chaos evocative of each member's experiences. Frontman Danny Gomez first met lead guitarist Jake Pflum while growing up in Florida. After years without contact they reconnected by chance on a random evening in the city, rekindling their friendship over their mutual obsession for The Rolling Stones and Velvet Underground. They immediately forced their best friend Alexis Castro to play drums (who had only just recently began teaching himself how to play). Bassist Mo Martinez uprooted to the city from Monterrey, Mexico. In hopes of playing music he reached out to Danny through mutual friends and naturally completed the band's lineup.
Cold Beaches is the psychedelic & romantic rock ‘n roll brainchild of DC-suburb native Sophia Nadia. Founded in Richmond, Virginia in 2015, Cold Beaches had very humble beginnings. Sophia Nadia recorded her first two records mostly by herself in her one-bedroom loft apartment in the Fan district. She then took Cold Beaches to the open road- touring North America extensively and continuing to develop her sound, inspired by the romance of the great cities. In 2017, Nadia moved to Chicago, Illinois and has since found a new line-up of city slickers consisting of Charlie Atchley (guitar), Eric Novak (bass), and Robby Kuntz (drums). Locked and loaded with an explosive psych-rock new sound while still retaining Sophia Nadia’s trademark honest, heart-filled lyrics and romantic, rhythmic guitar riffs, Cold Beaches is on a path to serenade the world one love song at a time.
