Sweden’s Retro Rockers Children of the Sün have released their new studio album “Roots.” The sextet’s sophomore full-length is a natural progression from their highly praised debut album “Flowers.” While the sound is refined and structurally more direct, the Woodstock loving hippie-spirit of the band shines on the 13 new tracks from their new album. With a retro sound and soulful, multi-layered vocal harmonies, “Roots” reflects a journey through life towards finding oneself; with songs about ups and downs, love and hate, light and darkness.
“On your journey through life, you grow like a tree. Everything that you have been, who you are right now and who you may become, once started with your roots.“
“Roots” was recorded at Church Bay Records in Arvika, Sweden. It was mixed by the guitarist Jacob Hellenrud and mastered by Hans Olsson at Svenska Grammofon Studion (Graveyard, Soundtrack of our Lives, The Hives). The album cover was illustrated by Revolver Design, who has previously provided artwork for bands such as Alter Bridge, Louise Lemón, and Nephila.
“Roots” is out now via The Sign Records. The album is available in CD, vinyl, and digital formats.

Children of the Sün Bio:
Inspired by Janis Joplin, Rival Sons, and the free lovin’ spirit of 1969’s legendary Woodstock Festival, Children of the Sün embody both the carefree and reflective sides of Classic Rock music. Following their 2018 success in the Swedish music competition Livekarusellen, the band released a self-titled EP and later came under the wing of The Sign Records, joining acts such as Hällas, MaidaVale, Skraeckoedlan, and The Hawkins. In 2019 the band released their first full-length album “Flowers” which was received with great love from the audience and the vinyl sold out just a few months after the release.
The song “Her Game” from their debut album got chosen by the Swedish nationwide newspaper Aftonbladet on their list of best Rock songs of 2019.
Since then the band has played on festivals and stages around Sweden including Arvika Hamnfest, Festival Of The Midnight Sun, Putte i Parken, The Sign Fest and hosted their own show in a barn out in the woods together with drummer Björn Fryklund (Freak Kitchen) Earlier this year they supported Trummor & Orgel on their tour.
