Sunlight Ascending is a really young band formed in Troy, Michigan, USA in 2007. Their music is a mix of Postrock, Shoegaze and dreamlike soundscapes. The band comprises of guitarists James Schultz and John Ballish, bass player Trish Chisholm and drummer Jeremy Schultz. Sunlight Ascending have just released their first 5-track-demo recorded in January 2008.

"If you were to just listen to this band on a whim without looking at a press release or Myspace page, your first thought might be how they have mastered that dreamy, instrumental sound that has become increasingly popular through labels like Temporary Residence and Rock Action. But I want to focus on the press release for a second. The age of the band members in Sunlight Ascending range from 14 to 21. It is pretty impressive that a band this young can play at a level that some musicians 10-15 years their senior aren’t even close to. If you are a fan of any of the bands (referring to Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, and Maserati) and/or record labels above, I would have a hard time imagining you not becoming a fan of this up-and-coming band. To the band, I say keep up the great work and go for it. College is overrated anyways." - Late Night Wallflower

"The members of Troy/Clawson-based instrumental indie/shoegaze band Sunlight Ascending are all between the ages of 13-17, yet the band has created quite a stir with their Mogwai-esque sonic constructions. Having recently completed a self-titled 5 song EP, the band displays a sensibility akin to the more ambient side of Godspeed You! Black Emperor or the more distorted and propulsive side of Kranky artists like Jessamine. Part of an increasingly sophisticated set of young bands emerging from the Detroit suburbs (such as The Muldoons and The Displays), Sunlight Ascending has been featured at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit's celebrated Sonic Lullaby Festival with such acts as Auburn Lull, Rx Gibbs, Soundpool, Indian Guides, and Kindle. - (SCENE) Metrospace

"Oakland County-based indie/metal maniacs Sunlight Ascending are taking over the current Detroit scene with their ambient approach to the genre. Led by the stinging strings of guitarists James Schultz, Sean Reed and Andy Mac, a smooth viola sound and a tight rhythm section, the band has leapt out into the forefront after opening for some big acts, including These Arms Are Snakes. While the band has stayed true to the foundations of both indie rock and metal, the group fashions both genres together like a painter, creating a beautiful soundscape that needs no words or vocals. The crunch of Maiden is there, along with the noise-pop sensibilities of groups like The Velvet Underground. The band will be playing an all ages show at The Rec in Hazel Park on March 6. Catch the show and relish the intimate nature and beauty of what a wonderful group of teenagers is doing. - Real Detroit Weekly
