Caravãna Sun – Afterlife

Caravãna Sun are Luke Carra (guitar/vocals), Ant Beard (bass/vocals), Chris Smithson (keys/vocals) and James Smithers (drums). The Australian quartet recently signed with Berlin-based label Embassy Of Music, joining a roster including Björk and Moby. The band are currently recording their new self-produced album, with help from Ian Pritchett (Angus & Julia Stone among others).

Afterlife is the second single to be released ahead of the long-player. It sees the surf-rockers abandon their signature sound for a more tuned down approach. Very fitting for a song that sparks philosophical thoughts on what follows this fleeting life. Musically, it brings Arctic Monkeys to mind.

Frontman Luke Carra says: “I feel there is light and darkness in this song, classic Yin and Yang. I sing the verses which are darker and cryptic, while Ant sings the choruses, which are lighter and more uplifting, asking the question if the afterlife exists.”

The accompanying video contrasts lightness and darkness in a similar vein as the song does. It places shots of lush, green forestry alongside charcoaled remains yet to re-blossom following this year’s catastrophic bushfire season.
