about

'Sun Drive' from The Gravitons captures the sound of the summer sun and converts it into an album of beautifully crafted tracks. The fourth album continues the eclectic mix of Indie Psychedelia Folk Country & Rock, making it both original yet familiar.

If you're planning a road trip, heading to a festival, flying off on holiday or just want to kick back and relax with some new tunes, this album's for you.

Find yourself transported into new places with sounds influenced by the greats such as Crosby, Stills and Nash, Fleet Foxes, the Mamas and the Papas, Caravan, Pink Floyd, Mumford & Sons, The Beatles, Beach Boys, Bowie, Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young etc....

A 21st century blend of Indie, West Coast Psychedelia, Canterbury Scene, Folk Rock and Alt Folk.

Road Trip Music for your Summer Of Love .... So sit back, relax and drive!


Review:-

The ability to combine these multiple sumptuous guitar based genre..s is impressive. Sun Drive is a signature road-trip, a track order which runs through historical icons - A cool breeze to freshen your dusty, heat ridden brow from the most vicious of balmy afternoons. Spiritual strumming reminiscent of George Harrison and structured arrangements within the frame of an early Peter Gabriel epic, you..re really going to appreciate the lack of emotional gimmickry and limitless escapism this record throws out at you - A carefully worked out audio time line, notably uncomplicated and multi-dimensional in every sense, set your controls to the heart of the sun. -- Mojophenia

Track Name: When The Summer Came
Here we all are
Here we all were today
Still we're not quite there yet, yet

They said you'd go far
Then they turned you away today

Still we're not quite there yet
Not quite there yet
But we're almost there yeah

When the summer came so did the rain
But when the water came sun shone again
You see it all comes round from one day to the next
And when the summer came
So did the rain, so did the rain, so did the rain, yeah

Life has a way
Of taking away your worth
It's the sum of a zero gain

'Cause all this is war
Of normal and strange today

Still we're not quite there yet
Not quite where yet
But we're almost there yeah

When the summer came so did the rain
But when the water came sun shone again
You see it all comes round from one day to the next
And when the summer came
Sun shone again, sun shone again, sun shone again yeah

So let it out, let it in
There ain't no doubt about it we need somewhere to begin
So I sing crying out, crying in
We need something to believe in
We need something we can, something we can't win
Yeah, yeah
Track Name: Eluded Me
I've been looking for a place I can call my own
I've been looking for a reason but the reason's gone
I've been hoping for some luck but it's not been seen
And it's so far eluded me
Yes it's so far eluded me

I've been waiting for a job that was made for me
I've been hoping for a time that was meant to be
I've been looking for a sound that has not been heard
But it's so far eluded me
Yes it's so far eluded me

I've been looking for a way I can call my own
I've been waiting for a song that has not been sung
I've been hoping for ideas that are so unique
But it's so far eluded me
Yes it's so far eluded me

I've been looking for a dream that did come true
I've been looking for a plan that isn't hard to do
I've been rolling for the odds and a certainty
But it's so far eluded me
Yes it's so far eluded me
Track Name: Wondering Why
Sitting here wondering, wondering why
Do, do, do, do, do, wondering why
Visions and the dreams and thoughts collide
Do, do, do, do, do, wondering why

I'm looking at the world and wondering what it is we wanted to see
And there's something inside telling me go where you want it to be
Where you want it to be, where you want it to be

Sitting here wondering, wondering why
Do, do, do, do, do, wondering why
Deep in the thought of a wandering mind
Do, do, do, do, do, wondering why

I'm looking at the world and wondering what it is we wanted to see
And there's something inside telling me go where you want it to be
Where you want it to be, where you want it to be

Do, do, do, do, do
Do, do, do, do, do

I'm looking at the world and wondering what it is we wanted to see
'Cause there's something inside telling me go where you want it to be
Where you want it to be, where you want it to be

Wondering, wondering, wondering why
Track Name: This Is Our Time
This, this is our time
We will define, we will define
It's just more fun, here in the sun
We will resign, this is our time

This, this is my time
I will define, I will define
It's just more fun, here in the sun
I will resign, this is my time

If there's something that you've got
Don't just give it away
And if there's something that you need
Then just get it today
And if there's something that you find
That you've got to do
And if there's something left inside
Left inside of you
And if there's something, something, something, something
Give me something, something, something, something
And if there's something, something, something, something
Give me something, something, something, something

So don't be sentimental
If that job it drives you mental
If it's repetitive and dumb
And it ain't helping anyone
Yeah I quit from now on
Yeah I quit from now on
Yeah I quit from now on
Yeah I quit from now on
Track Name: Stop Wasting Time
Stop wasting time
When nothing seems to get easier
Stop wasting time
When nothing seems to get clearer
Those mysteries are just meant to be

Way after way, maybe in the next world
Way after way, maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world

Stop wasting time
When nothing's on the horizon
Stop wasting time
When plans don't seem to include you
No victory is without defeat

Way after way, maybe in the next world
Way after way, maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world
Maybe in the next world .....
Way after way
Track Name: Strange Rearrange
How many times have you tried to belong
But all you keep doing goes wrong
Don't be afraid just keep moving on
Let everything, everything come

See the strange, strange, strange, strange
Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange

Look for a change in rhythm and rhyme
Where everything has its own time
In harmonies way utopia cries
That something will always defy

See the strange, strange, strange, strange
Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange
See the strange, strange, strange, strange
Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange

Open your eyes
See the colours dance in the light
Orange, red, green and blue
Combine into something new

See the strange, strange, strange, strange
Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange
Rearrange, rearrange, rearrange
Track Name: Gonna Do
Standing here thinking what we're gonna do
What we're gonna do about you
Standing here thinking what we're gonna do
What we're gonna do about you
Standing here thinking what we're gonna do
What we're gonna do about you
Standing here thinking what we're gonna do
What we're gonna do about you

What we're gonna do, What we're gonna do

What we're gonna do, What we're gonna do

Standing here thinking what we're gonna do
What we're gonna do about you
Standing here thinking what we're gonna do
What we're gonna do about you

What we're gonna do, What we're gonna do
What we're gonna do, What we're gonna do
What we're gonna do, What we're gonna do
What we're gonna do, What we're gonna do
What we're gonna do, What we're gonna do
What we're gonna do, What we're gonna do
Track Name: Mine Tonight
Will you be mine tonight
Will you be mine tonight
Will you be mine (will you be mine)
Will you be mine (will you be mine)
Will you be mine (will you be mine)
Will you be mine (will you be mine)

Will you be mine tonight
Will you be mine tonight

Track Name: Indian Rain
Ah, Indian Rain
Ah, Indian Rain

The water came
Let it rain, rain, rain on you
Into the vein of the tributaries
Ain't it a shame that it won't wait long for you
Along it's way through the river to the sea

Ah, Indian Rain
Ah, Indian Rain

The water came
Let it rain, rain, rain on you
Into the vein of the tributaries
Ain't it a shame that it won't wait long for you
Along it's way through the river to the sea
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
Are you saying that life is like
Life is like a light
That you're hoping to see
Unknown colours
Surrounding now
A Kaleidoscope
Has this all been a dream

Live your life
See the sunshine in the sky
In the summer breeze
Summer breeze
Leave it all behind
'Cause today you're gonna find
That it all comes round in the end

Hear the sound carving out many different way
In the call of the waves
Everything becomes and then
Then it is erased
Has it all been the same

Live your life
See the sunshine in the sky
In the summer breeze
Summer breeze
Leave it all behind
'Cause today you're gonna find
That it all comes round in the end

Live your life
See the sunshine in the sky
In the summer breeze
Summer breeze
Leave it all behind
'Cause today you're gonna find
That it all comes round in the end
Track Name: Under Northern Sky
Here in the fifth dimension
High under northern sky
Time seems so different here
Then another year goes by
Still we're nowhere now
And I'm gonna sing out loud
That life is so incomplete
When forever leaving
When forever leaving
When forever leaving

Here in the fifth dimension
High under northern sky
Time seems so different here
Then another year goes by
Still we're nowhere now
And I'm gonna sing out loud
That life is so incomplete
When forever leaving
When forever leaving
When forever leaving

Here in the fifth dimension
High under northern sky
Time seems so different here
Then another year goes by
Still we're nowhere now
And I'm gonna sing out loud
That life is so incomplete
When forever leaving
When forever leaving
When forever leaving
Track Name: Honolulu Sunshine
Honolulu sunshine band is coming your way
Honolulu sunshine band is coming your way
I know it's going OK, going OK
Honolulu sunshine band is coming
Coming, coming, coming your way

Honolulu sunshine band is coming your way
Honolulu sunshine band is coming your way
I know it's going OK, going OK
Honolulu sunshine band is coming
Coming, coming, coming your way
