Sunshine Superman’s infectious tunes are drenched in upbeat melodies and snarky lyrics (“Sorry, I’m An Asshole”). However, the Philadelphia piano-pop quartet’s jazzy tunes are contemplative, complex and refreshing. “We like to add sections of blistering chaos where you least expect it, but nothing is forced,” says pianist/vocalist Valentina Raffaelli. She originally came to the U.S. from Italy to study music and “fulfill [my] dreams of playing my original songs to people,” she says. “In Italy, there is no market for new things. My ideas were too ‘strange’ for them.”
