SunDub is a five-piece band from Brooklyn whose sound is based mainly in reggae but also incorporates a fair amount of soul. The band began with a weekly residency in Brooklyn and has grown into what it is now. In addition to making their own music, the band members advocate for political movements and teach music to kids in New York.
The band’s first album Burden of Love was released in 2019. It is a relentlessly positive album filled with sunny melodies. On it, you can hear a distinct influence of Bob Marley and The Wailers that is balanced by the soulful vocals of Joanna Teters.
The songs for the new album Spirits Eat Music were first written in the first weeks of lockdown in 2020. Joanna Teters had this to say about the process of the new album, “as the whole world was presented with a new reality of isolation and separation from their usual, everyday lives and routines, came this song about finding ways to feel grateful and centered, even when you are feeling constricted or challenged.” The new album was recorded in May 2021 at Lydgate Sound in Kauai, engineered and co-produced by Sidney Mills. Of the experience, singer Joanna Teters said, “The island and farm envelops its visitors with lush nature and sweet sunshine, offering a beautiful kind of inspiration that can only come from being disconnected to our everyday lives and distractions.”
The band hooks the listener immediately with the title track. It is a bouncy melody that is made for sunny days. It makes you wish that you were enjoying the tune live in some open-air venue with some of your closest friends (and strangers that suddenly seem like good friends).
“New Ways to Love” reflects some of the band’s thoughts on dealing with the new post-COVID world. In it, Peetah Morgan of Morgan Heritage sings, “When life gives me twists and change, I deal with it the best I can.” The whole song is filled with lyrics that are easy to sing simply because everyone can relate.
“Real Change” gives another glimpse into trying to adjust to dealing with the circumstances of life when these songs were written. The song is filled with positive lines that provide hope in times of struggle. Teters sings lines like, “Leave your anger and worry. Keep your eyes ahead as the sun rises.” Another line that catches the attention is, “Real change only happens one step at a time.” Even if your mood is less than spectacular when the song starts, you can’t help but feel better after the bright melody and hopeful lyrics.
If you want a song that is unadulterated joy, “The Wall” is the one for you. Your head immediately starts bouncing with the keyboard part at the beginning of the song. The story of the song is one of going out with friends and just letting the music in the club flow through you. You might just hear yourself exclaim, “AMEN!” when you hear the line, “Forget that old 9 to 5. Just live it up and dance like it’s the last day of your life.” In a world that is frequently heavy and dark, Spirits Eat Music is a ray of musical sunshine. It is a remedy that requires neither a consultation with a physician nor a prescription. If you’re looking for a musical mood boost, this album will get you off to a good start.
