|Sun Devoured Earth is a one-man band from Aizkraukle, Latvia, formed in 2009 by Vadim Vasilyev.
The style switches between different genres but a strong shoegaze/dream pop/post-rock core remains in every release. The production is very raw and amateur and usually features delay and reverb abuse and incomprehensible vocals.
The lyrical themes deal with emotions and are often very honest and sometimes improvised. The emotions can be positive but more often than not, negative. The most common theme that dominates the lyrics is nostalgia but depression, regret, self-loathing, pessimism, nihilism, existentialism and misanthropy are common as well.
Currently signed to Handmade Birds Records, a 7-release box set was recently released.
