SonOfOld drops new single “Sunshine” featuring Foo Fighter’s Rami Jaffee

South African singer-songwriter Nic Olsen, known for his work with alternative rock band Perez and SA-indie darlings The Parlotones, returns in a solo capacity as SonOfOld with his brand new single “Sunshine”.

The track marks the first release from his eagerly anticipated new album Echoes from A Silent Hill, due later this year. But there’s more. The song also features the talents of the incredible Rami Jaffee from Foo Fighters, who plays on Hawaiian guitar and keys. Theo Crous also dabbles on production and backing vocals.

The track reminds me of Stealers Wheel’s classic hit “Stuck In The Middle With You” – complete with hand claps and a brilliantly upbeat vibe. Olsen describes the single as “an ode to restrained sobriety,” while the infectious refrain “Don’t forget the sunshine baby” starts to feel more like a mantra with every listen.

We just know we’re in for a treat once the full album drops, but for now, enjoy this gleeful taster.
