Australian-born musician, Rai Thistlethwayte—who goes by the moniker Sun Rai—is currently based in LA and making quite the name for himself with his feel-good soul/pop, apparent on debut EP, Pocket Music, out today on a "pay what you want" business model via Bandcamp.
Below, we have a live version of a remix featured on Pocket Music: "Till The Lights Come On." A jam hasn't made us feel this inexplicably giddy and unstoppable—like we could walk on water, hop across clouds, or pull some real-life Super Mario Bros. shit, like jump on flying turtles and collect gold coins—since Phoenix's "If I Ever Feel Better."
Not only can you stream this track below, but it's also downloadable for free!
