CD ReviewsBy Ruth Lawson.

Sonner - We Go Forth Tonight HONEST, pure and unpretentious are the three words that spring to mind as this simply-constructed song unfolds.

The stripped back instruments and heartfelt lyrics add up to create an anthemic-sounding track that captures the feeling of summer despite the constant rainfall outside our windows.

Steering clear of the urge to follow the swathes of musicians down the path of trendy math rock or electro-indie tunes, Sonner stick to what they know best and have managed to put out a really well-produced and tight track.

The track examines the availability of eight cans of lager for pounds 5 and the impact it has on the community and that pretty much sums up what you can expect lyrically.

But instrumentally the group, which is the brainchild of singer-songwriter GW Lang, knock out powerful and precise beats that culminate in a catchy tune that would easily get a moshpit worked up.
