Sun Not Yellow is the latest project for Cory in his post graduation life. SNY is a powerful alternative rock trio that has been trying to push their limitations since they began this musical outfit. The band has been described as dynamic, interesting, and intriguing in both their music and lyrical content.
'Sun Not Yellow’s first LP is a heavily melodic and interesting rock debut in which the songs take advantage of their moderate lengths and deliver on dynamics. When asked about the album title, the band stated “Activity oriented meditation is the process of losing yourself in a series of motions or actions, which is a form of meditation that we all share when we play music together, and is essentially how we wrote the album.” It is apparent from just listening to this thing that the band has a knack for bringing all their inspirations together in pursuit of something new. On Activity Oriented Meditation, Sun Not Yellow makes the case that indie rock songs today can be much more than just recycling trends made popular decades before.'- Andrew Santora, UARTS Music Review. With their latest release, SNY has manage to capture the emotions brought upon one who is tie to technology, aware, but still trapped but the glowing lights of the screen.
