BRUJAS DEL SOL is a psychedelic quartet from Columbus that focuses
their attention toward fuzzed out, loud, swirly, droney compositions. After their
heaped with loads of great reviews Debut LP 'Moon Liner' from 2013 the Columbus
Four went back to the studio to work on a new epic song: The new song
'Starquake' is about 11 minutes and with strong bonds of Hawkwind to Pink Floyd
with a lot of genius hypnotic tunes.
Now two years after their debut BRUJAS DEL SOL is
back with a bang! ‘Starquake’ will be released end of 2015 over H42 Records.

Old bandmates Adrian Zambrano (guitar, vocals) and Derrick
White (bass) formed BRUJAS DEL SOL with drummer Jason Green in the fall
of 2011. Instead of pre-writing songs, the band took a more organic approach;
recording every improvised jam session. After a few months, hours of musical
ideas were captured. Listening back, the band picked a couple of favourites
which became their first songs. A variety of musical ingredients began to melt
into a sound of their own; hypnotic krautrock, fuzz-laden blues grooves,
swirling surf-rock, ambient drones all found their ways into songs.
During the spring of 2012 the band hit Electraplay Studios
which yielded two EPs-Moonliner volumes 1 & 2. As the writing
process became more demanding, the band wanted to add a keyboardist. Ryan
Stivers joined that summer and the band went forth composing music for the last
installation in their Moonliner trilogy.
While spending most of the summer writing and opening for
national acts A Place
to Bury Strangers and Black moth super rainbow, Moonliner volume 3 was
recorded and finally released December of 2012.
