New Music: Bipolar Sunshine – Deckchairs on the Moon

Rating:

Bipolar Sunshine – Real name ADIO MARCHANT – has witnessed a huge surge in popularity and critical acclaim during the past few years. Since being co-vocalist for former band KID BRITISH, his new alias Bipolar Sunshine has been a brilliant success and the act is set to grow an even larger reputation with the release of new single ‘Deckchairs on the Moon’ which is set to be released on July 6th.

The new single has a catchy chorus that is set to send waves throughout the course of the summer. Capturing the relaxed music bed in contrast with the punchy vocals of Marchant is an effective technique used throughout this track, with the chorus instantaneously recognisable and sure to be belted out from crowds globally during the year.

‘I’m loving this, two souls no longer lost’ declares Marchant during one of the more emotionally poignant verses of the track. Despite Bipolar Sunshine’s usual positive spin on the new single and evidently positive lyrics, there is also credibility behind the lyrics and while being catchy and prosperous in terms of the single, these expressive lyrics are successful in conveying a narrative throughout the track.

‘Deckchairs on the Moon’ has received an extremely positive critic response since its first play. Zane Lowe played the song on Radio 1 while declaring it the ‘Hottest Record in the World’; often leading to further success and popularity for a range of artists in the past such as Klaxons, Nero and Kasabian.

With sets at Reading/Leeds Festivals later in the year along with Glastonbury and Bestival, the summer looks bright for Bipolar Sunshine. He then follows these huge summer dates with a headline tour in September and October, including shows at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Manchester’s Ritz. Look out for the rise of Bipolar Sunshine during 2014.
