SunSquabi Releases New Single "Chrysalis" August 31, 2018 12:04
Colorado based trio SunSquabi released its newest single ‘Chrysalis’ yesterday in anticipation of their upcoming full-length record. ‘Chrysalis’ is the second stage in a 3-part series that started with the track ‘Caterpillar’. The band has been focusing on biology and evolution as themes for inspiration during their writing process. The way the music is coming to fruition has changed recently with the addition of Josh Fairman (bass/synth) into the band and the metamorphosis between Caterpillar > Chrysalis > Night Moth are symbolic of this change. “Capturing the live element in the studio is really something we have been focusing on and we feel like this is the best representation of the band to date.” says Josh Fairman
“The metamorphosis becomes more evident as these stages are revealed. It's been a really fun process to work on.” says Kevin Donohue. Chris Anderson’s (drums) brother Spencer Anderson is also featured on the violin in the track. “This one was memorable for me. We flew my brother Spencer Anderson out to record violin on Chrysalis. You can usually find him on stage with his orchestra at Skidmore College, but this time we wanted to explore strings in the context of SunSquabi tunes. Collaborating with family is so special,” says Chris Anderson.
Stay tuned for the final stage of this metamorphosis followed by a full-length release from the band in Fall 2018.
There’s a place, deep in the cosmos, where jam bands and electronic dance music intersect with rhythm-driven funk. You’ll feel like you’re floating here but not lost completely to the atmospheric elements. Instead, you’re tethered to an avant-garde spaceship with Colorado-based SunSquabi on the frequency. This cosmic wonderland is a melting pot of a variety of musical genres and it represents the future of music.
A three-piece suit - SunSquabi has been catching the eyes and ears of music fans around the world with their ever-evolving sound in the studio and on the live stage. SunSquabi has gained national attention for their unique way of producing music. The band’s live show can be described as an ‘Electronic Hydro Funk Experience’ that is different every single time out. SunSquabi continues to break down and analyze the expectations of what a “Live-Electronic” band should be. The band unveiled their debut EP with All Good Records, titled, ‘Odyssey’ which featured artists GRiZ and Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic. Their 2nd EP ‘Deluxe’ was a sophomore success with the label that continued where Odyssey left off. The band has now released 2 singles ‘Just A Little’ and ‘Caterpillar’ ahead of their upcoming 2018 release.
Combining the talents of Kevin Donohue (guitars/keys/production) Josh Fairman (bassist/synth) and Chris Anderson (drums). This project is a disciplined and structured group. It takes a seasoned musician to stay in the pocket for the sake of building well-developed lines and climaxes. To do that seamlessly requires patience and skill. “It’s kinda like breathing, honestly. We can communicate directly with each other both verbally and non-verbally, onstage and off.” That connection will take the music collectively where we all want to go.” – Kevin Donohue
