ELECTRONIC PRESS KIT
Chris Sunfield is a new figure on the Canadian music scene who confidently defies labels. His songs bridge several genres such as progressive pop, symphonic pop, and epic pop, and often show classical and ambient stylings. He writes and arranges all songs, sings, and plays all guitars and keyboards. And then there's the lyrics. In a world where many songs are not meant to be ‘read’, Sunfield's poetics explore thought-provoking, existential, and cosmological issues. Chris has only recently returned to a life of music-making after living much of his life as someone else. Not surprisingly, themes of re-awakening and authenticity permeate some of his future singles as well as a forthcoming album on Radar Love Records.
Available Now "PREDATOR"
Chris Sunfield's second single "Predator" is an abrupt about-face following his sunshine pop debut "The Little Things". Predator is a provocative poison pen letter to romantic predators, exposing their psychopathic and Machiavellian ways. The lyrics, with their reptilian metaphors, serve to validate anyone who's been harmed by toxic narcissists, and to warn others about their predatorial charms. Musically, the song is a multi-layered wall of retro sounds with progressive house stylings and a vintage, analog, R&B vibe. Sunfield sings, and plays all guitars, bass, and keyboards. Producer Michael Hanson (Glass Tiger) plays drums while fellow Radar Love Records artist Vicky Rai handles backing vocals. The crowning moment is an acid-tinged rap by Dynamic (a.k.a. Ya Favourite Lightskin) that dials up the tension before ushering in a climax of musical dialogue among the various predator and prey players.
Debut Single "the little things"
"The Little Things" is the debut single by Chris Sunfield on Radar Love Records. The song, written by Sunfield, is a modern, sunshine pop song on steroids, with a wall-of-sound arrangement that's reminiscent of the pop mini-symphonies of a bygone era. Sunfield handles lead vocals, guitars, and keyboards, with support by fellow Radar Love Records artist Vicky Rai on backing vocals. Michael Hanson (Glass Tiger), who produced the song, plays bass and drums. The song is unabashedly campy, retro, and infectious, with space-themed lyrics that urge us to appreciate the simple things in life while continuing to reach for the planets, stars, and moons above. "The Little Things" is the opening shot in Chris Sunfield's music career - a career that will explore more progressive territory in future releases (already in production).
