Silver Sun are an English indie power pop band, who formed in 1995 in Camden, London, UK. They were initially called Sun..! and released their first EP under that name. They were forced to alter the name soon afterwards. The single "Lava" was their first under the new name. They are best know for their use of The Beach Boys-esque backing vocals. Groups like Super Furry Animals also wrote music in a similar style at the time.
