Today, SoCal’s surf-rock ringleaders Sun Room pair an official video with their latest single “At Least I Tried.” Directed by Jack Revell, the video jumps between the band trying their best to make it through a whirlwind week, and footage from a house show they played in San Diego for the 4th of July. An ode to the messy chaos of the house shows that raised them, the “At Least I Tried” video perfectly captures how Sun Room spends their summer days – Watch.
Released last week, the new single saw Sun Room team up with one of their musical idols, Zac Carper of FIDLAR. The song was premiered by Paste Magazine, who said, “It’s vibrant, rowdy and a hell lot of fun.” Packing the energy and chaos of their garage jams into two and a half minutes, the song runs Monday to Sunday, showing how the band is just winging it and hoping for the best. Especially out on tour, sometimes everything goes wrong, and they just have to laugh and get on with it.
Later this fall, Sun Room will release their At Least I Tried EP while continuing their coast to coast headline tour.
Currently in motion, Sun Room is out on the road for their Fall headline tour across North America through the end of November. Across their upcoming tour dates, Sun Room will be joined by Sports Team, Sarah & the Sundays, and Surf Trash. This coming weekend, Sun Room is headlining Ocean Fest, a North Carolina festival that aims to raise awareness and funds for protecting the ocean. See all tour information here and below.

Back in February, Sun Room released their EP Outta Their Minds, which was met with praise from AltPress, DIY, EUPHORIA, Stab Mag, and many others. Straddling the line between garage and surf rock, the meteorically rising band fused their carefree authenticity, brash vocals, rebellious 60s inspirations, and a total disregard for the “rule book” on how polished indie rock has come to be. In four songs, the band stepped out as an indisputable force and set the stage for more music to come.
