“Dramatic and poignant! Unobtrusively, the band mixes synth experimentalism in with its folky, string-band sound to great effect.” – NPR

Driven by simple acoustic guitar lines, graceful string orchestrations, and Levitt’s hushed, earnest vocals, Setting Sun’s songwriting, arrangements and lyrics were called “dramatic and poignant” by NPR. Pop Matters wrote that “Setting Sun create an Arcade Fire urgency, creating sweeping orchestrations, driving rhythms. delicate, hushed vocals and well-crafted pop songs”. The sound is usually centered around the song, with poppy hooks and choruses, while mixing synth experimentalism in with its folky, string-band feel.

Baroque 60s pop duets with junky electronics and thrashy fuzzed-out guitars.
