Do we love AV Super Sunshine? Yes we do! And when we saw the name of his most recent single, ‘X File 8675309’ we laughed out loud, because, if you’re of a certain age, you’ll instantly know what it means – in 1981 it became the most most famous phone number on earth, belonging to Jenny, from the song by Tommy Tutone, ‘867-5309/Jenny’. The song doesn’t just use the number, but it also features the hook from that song.
AV Super Sunshine’s new single isn’t that at all. It’s a new arrangement. Originally released in 2014, ‘Baby Goodbye’ was followed by a hip-hop remix video, and 3 years later, ‘Baby Goodbye 2017 Dance’, a club-flavoured house-remix. ‘Baby Goodbye 2020’ is an updated take on the original, effortlessly smooth-gliding, while combining modern sounds with a heavy dose of retro-guitar heavy 60s psych, 70s hard rock, and soulful female vocals.
We love the peace, love, and rock and roll of AV Super Sunshine, and have been writing about him for a while now. His unique bled of pop, rock, and EDM have won him fans all over the globe, and in the current pandemic it’s the perfect antidote to any doom and gloom. AV Super Sunshine’s most recent release, ‘Smile’ should bring one to your face, and if it doesn’t, then listen to the song again just to make sure.
