As Folk Radio UK observes, Sunny War “is a woman of remarkable depth. She is also a woman who doesn’t shy away from dealing with difficult topics, seeming almost drawn to them.” A few of these difficult topics make their way onto War’s newest LP, Simple Syrup, which is going for NACC Top 200 and Folk debuts this week. “Both the large and small moments on Simple Syrup reflect an artist who is her own woman,” the site writes, after examining her exquisite guitar style along with her lyrics. “She is a product of the years she has spent honing her craft, singing on the streets and in clubs. Sunny War knows what she wants and has found a way to create a world that not only reflects her view of the world but is better for her being in it. Remarkable, simply remarkable.”
