40 Watt Sun is a London-based band formed in early 2009, featuring songwriter Patrick Walker, best known for his previous band, Warning, drummer Christian Leitch and bass player and producer William Spong.
40 Watt Sun's music is characterised by down-tempo rhythms, sparse arrangements and introspective lyrical themes, as well as Patrick Walker's poignant vocals.
Their debut album, The Inside Room, was recorded over three days and nights at The Library Studio in London, and was produced and mixed entirely by the band. It features five new songs of original material, as well as a bonus song on the limited-edition vinyl release. It was released on Cyclone Empire on March 4th 2011 in the EU, and Metal Blade in the US.
The band are currently working on material for their second release.
