Caravãna Sun have had an epic journey from conception to elevation with the band playing over 500 shows around the world in the last five years. In 2016 alone, not only did the band release a string of singles and two breathtaking film clips, the four-piece laid their cards on the table with Guerrilla Club, their 3rd studio album.
Not content with just being a celebration of all things Australiana, the Sydneysiders brought in some serious Aussie heavyweights to help bring Guerrilla Club to life. Recorded at Wasteland Studios in WA, Eskimo Joe guitarist Joel Quartermain was enlisted to draw out the record’s hidden sounds. It resulted in the most contemporary sounding record the band have made, aiming to engulf listeners with it's seamless mix of world-fuelled, rebellious surf rock.
