NPR Interviews Sunny War
NPR‘s Weekend Edition profiled Sunny War over the weekend, giving her the full interview treatment and playing snippets of tunes from her new album Simple Syrup alongside tracks she created as a teenage punk. It’s also got some perspective from Brian Rodriguez, her Anus Kings bandmate and one of the first people to recognize her stunning guitar talent. Back then, “I was just completely shocked that this tiny, silly little girl in a Clash T-shirt was now just doing this technique that I’ve never even seen before or heard before with the crab claw fingerstyle and playing, like, blisteringly fast.” Of course, that was a while ago — she’s only gotten better since then!
