SUNMONKS Perform Songs From "Two Play" In CapRadio Garden


SUNMONKS joined the Sacramento music scene in 2012, and found critical acclaim with their debut EP “In A Desert of Plenty” in 2014. They’ve been releasing songs and videos over the course of 2016 and 2017, building up to their first full-length album “Two Play” released in June. Band leaders Geoffrey CK and Alexandra Steele just returned from a quick mini-tour through Oregon and Washington, and they’re playing a show in Davis on July 29 before heading out for another tour in August.

SUNMONKS recorded a live performance video in the CapRadio Garden this week, including "Two Play" and "White Mountain Ranges" from the new record and the unreleased song "Woman Electric."
