Sunjacket is an indie rock band from Chicago. In the fall of 2014, Bryan Kveton (vocals, guitar, synth), Carl Hauck (vocals, guitar, synth), and Garret Bodette (drums, percussion) took a year off from playing shows to finish writing and recording songs for their debut LP.

The result is Mantra, an “expansive exploration of human compulsions” (Stereogum), whose 10 tracks range from dark, synth-driven pop to layered, syncopated rock, with moments of ambient sparseness in between.

Released September 16, 2016, the album was produced in collaboration with Fraser McCulloch (of Brooklyn band Milagres) and mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors, Local Natives).
