AllMusic Review by

Suntan's promising debut consciously evokes the neo-psychedelic space rock renaissance of the early '90s, constructing vibrant, pulsating guitar epics complete with droning electronic accents that recall bands like Spectrum and Jessamine. Despite comprising just three songs, the EP clocks in at a collective 26 minutes, over which the band reveals a solid grasp of scope and depth -- the songs earn their epic length by accruing scale as they expand, amassing colorful new layers of sonic sheen. Most importantly, the bombast is supported by actual songs -- the centerpiece "Bag It Up" in particular boasts a memorably laconic melody that could stand on its own, regardless of six-string pyrotechnics.
