We got pretty hyped back at the end of 2013 when we came across the Rochester surf trio, The Huckleberry Fins. The group’s French Kiss flavored “Wild Blue Yonder” was like fire over at the blog office (ranking #10 on our favorite Rochester songs of the year), and we couldn’t wait to here what would come next from the threesome.
After flying under the radar for what was quickly approaching two years, the band is back with a great new single and an accompanying music video for the track “The Sun is Setting.” The song could easily be included on a future Captured Tracks compilation as it brings to mind early Beach Fossils, while the video find the Huckleberry boys showing off some skate boarding moves through the streets and parking garages of Rochester.
“The Sun is Setting” is the first single on the band’s upcoming 11-track LP, Pipe Dreams, set to drop on July 24th as a shared pressing on tape label Dadstache Records. The album will be released in all physical forms and is currently available for pre-sale. You can help celebrate the release of Pipe Dreams with the band on the evening of its release over at Small World Books. Look for future updates on the show here.
In the mean time, stream the single over on the band’s soundcloud page and check out the video for “The Sun is Setting” below.
