AS THE SECOND SINGLE FROM UPCOMING‘OM RECORDS – 25 YEARS’ DUE OUT JULY 10
Reptile Room, an electro-pop trio formed in Atlanta in 2017 by Bill Zimmerman and brother and sister Sean and Sami Michelsen, joined San Francisco’s Om Records in 2019 with their debut album Jade. Today, May 29 their brand-new single “Sunlite” serves as the second release from Om Records – 25 Years due out July 10 which celebrates the 25th anniversary of one of America’s longest running independent music labels. “’Sunlite’ is an atmospheric dreamscape of electro-pop synths anchored by singer Sami Michelsen’s euphoric croons. The track’s words of encouragement are scribbled across posterboard in the accompanying sepia-toned, lo-fi lyric video, which the three-piece filmed themselves on Atlanta’s deserted streets before the city went into full COVID-19 lockdown,” wrote Jaime Sloane of the SF WEEKLY. “’Sunlite’ is very much a focused, intentional message that things are going to shape up, and not to worry,” Reptile Room’s Sami Michelsen told the WEEKLY. “The timing of it all is interesting, because we didn’t start out writing it knowing that the world would be affected the way it’s been, and it feels like it has come full circle. You’re writing for your future self, but you don’t know it at the time”
