Biography

Sonna formed in January of 1998 when Jeremy began playing with Chris, Jim and Paul Petersan. After playing shows in and around Baltimore, they recorded “These Windows Are Pistons” and “Way To Breathe No Breath” at WGNS in Washington, DC. In August, Paul moved to Austin, TX. Drew joined soon thereafter, and Sonna played several more shows before recording with Trevor⁄hollAnd in September of 1999. The sixth volume in the Travels in Constants series, “The Eventual Bow”, came out of this session, as did “Kept Luminesce⁄Mirameko”. In August of 2000, Sonna recorded “We Sing Loud Sing Soft Tonight” at Electrical Audio in Chicago. A couple of US tours later, Sonna made another trip to Electrical and recorded “Smile and the World Smiles With You,” to be released on Temporary Residence in 2003.

In the fall of 2000 the Belgian label, Zealrecords, asked Sonna to do a single with them. Having already done singles by their friends Sybarite and Lilienthal, Sonna agreed and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to collaborate with the two reclusive electronic artists.
Sonna recorded some bare tracks of acoustic guitar, samples and drones and sent the unfinished pieces to Sybarite and Lilienthal to complete. The resulting tracks, “Make Shift” and “Carousel” are presented here as a limited edition 7” single. Flaunting just about every facet of Sonna’s dynamic range, these two tracks glide from punchy, guitar-driven electronic pop to dark, glitchy soundscapes.

    So chill. Instrumental rock without all the stuffy pretentiousness. I know Devine is busy running Temporary Residence. Regardless, I'd love to hear a followup to "Smile and the World Smiles with You" (the title of which I adore, by the way).
