Max Connery, Danny Murray and Noah Sullivan met in high school after bonding over music from the likes of MGMT, DIIV, The Smiths, and My Bloody Valentine. They released their self-titled, debut EP in November of 2017, which quickly brought them local recognition. Within a few months, they were playing shows all over New Jersey and received local praise, press coverage, and an Asbury Park Music Award for “Best New Band under 21”. The band finished writing and recording their second EP shortly after and released Beach Karma in July of 2018. Their Beach Karma EP brought the band larger recognition and was celebrated with college and international radio airtime. The EP was listed on You Don’t Know Jersey’s “Best NJ Records of 2018” list, and the band appeared on NJ.com’s “Top Bands to Hear in 2019” and “Top Bands to Hear in 2020.”

This forward momentum led Sonic Blume to signing with Asbury Park’s new independent label Shore Points Records. Sonic Blume’s 2021 debut album “We’re Drifting Further Apart, Aren’t We?” is a collection of songs which create a dreamy world of escapism. The album explores themes of longing, separation, and isolation—sentiments that have become universally understood among artists and live music fans through 2020 and 2021. The album’s high-energy, vocal-centric performances layered with 80s drum machines are a creative leap forward from their previous two EPs. Sean Kayden of EARMILK writes that Sonic Blume have “created a dream-pop world of their own, where their melodic tendencies flow in the direction of an ethereal soundscape to bask within.” He also added that Sonic Blume has “the languidness of early Wild Nothing, the cutesy synth-pop prowess of Craft Spells, and the jangly guitar melodies of Beach Fossils.”

Since late 2021 and throughout 2022, Sonic Blume has been touring heavily throughout the northeast and southeast United States, performing with artists such as Joe P, Similar Kind, Tor Miller, and more. Between tour dates, they filmed and released videos for album tracks “Lovers,” “Happy,” and most recently “Lucy.”
