Fightman Floater is Sun-Riser’s debut single. The slow burner is a psych-tinged banger with a driving drum beat that leads you through the course of the song. Shimmering guitars give the song a layered feel along with the echoing vocals and back vocals. Fightman Floater is a feast for your ears.”

The Girls at the Rock Show

Fightman Floater is a vibrant psyche laced pop tune that is danceable and may we say, fulfilling. The topographical rhythms glance at your shy side and with tight production, it shimmers in your inside – right there – where we’re pointing. 7 Years of compilation came to this orgasm of expression, and for that, their audience should be fabulously satisfied”



Sun-Riser is the result of 7 years of compilation and contemplation between Kevin Conroy and Aaron Baer solidified with the addition of southern dandy Jesse Kay. Their sound rises in the East and sets in the West so you can always find your way back home

In 2019, Chicago Alt-Rock Band, Sun-Riser recorded their debut single “Fightman Floater,” with producer-legend Doug McBride (whose credits include Rachael Yamagata, Silversun Pickups, Fall Out Boy, The Walkmen, Veruca Salt, and Buddy Guy, and more) at Gravity Studios in Wicker Park. Previously performing as Kevin Conroy’s solo project, the band changed their name to Sun-Riser while recording Fightman Floater. The single was tracked, mixed, and mastered by Doug McBride.
