Sunhawk began as a dance-pop trio inspired by the likes of Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand, but have recently changed course toward a sound more akin to Radiohead and MGMT. The result is a blend of sizzling guitar riffs mingling with swirling synths, pulsing electronic samples, and powerful dance-inducing drumming.

Matt Longpre (vocals, keyboards, bass, guitar), Keenan Murray (drums) and Ben Robertson (vocals, guitar, bass) performed at Rifflandia 4 at Royal Athletic Park, sharing a venue with the likes of USS, Cold War Kids, Mother Mother and Broken Social Scene.
Sunhawk returns to Victoria after a late-July visit to the scorching hot Rock of the Woods Festival in the Cowichan Valley.

Sunhawk is currently in the process of recording new material, and will debut several new tracks at Lucky Bar on Friday, August 31st.
