Del Sur is the tropical pop solo project of recent Philadelphia transplant Michael Collier. With a surf-inspired sound that reminds us of a beachy Jens Lekman, Collier will release his debut EP H.A.G.S on Soundcloud Sept. 23.

The artist looks forward to immersing himself in the local music scene, but he brings his hometown personality with him, too. “H.A.G.S. is the collective sum of my high school years spent in suburban Philadelphia,” Collier says.

We think fans of Charleston dream-popsters Tape Waves will easily latch onto the sounds of Del Sur.
