Quitzow and Setting Sun Issue New Albums, Tour Together

Quitzow and Setting Sun have both just released new albums and will be embarking on a joint tour together for the remainder of the summer. Quitzow (aka Erika Quitzow) and the founder/lead-singer of Setting Sun, Gary Levitt, are the masterminds behind running and recording on their label, Young Love Records. The two have assisted each other in recording and are often interchangeable onstage, offering their services to a wide range of instrumentation and voice, whenever the occasion calls for it. The tour will be in support of both bands’ new albums, which were released earlier this June on Young Love. Quitzow‘s Art College finds the singer/songwriter experimenting with an array of instruments – from the cello to a Moog – offering an astounding collective of genre-blending music. Likewise, Setting Sun dabbles with a plethora of instruments on their new album Children of the Wild. The new record also incorporates edgy and intimate lyrics that have garnered Levitt’s songwriting comparison to Elliott Smith. The tour kicked off this Tuesday and will continue through July.
