Depression overtakes blue as the character begins to retreat inward shortly after responding to red's initial advances. Blue almost becomes a metaphor for the mental ailment itself, clinging desperately to any self-destructive method that will keep the emptiness away, searching for a way to stay alive.
Originally formed in 2015 and led by two brothers; vocalist/songwriter Steven Blake and drummer William Alton cut their teeth playing small clubs up and down the east coast. The name was in dedication to their late friend and musical compadre James Sun, who’s life was tragically cut short in 2011. By 2017, Animal Sun had begun appearing all over local radio and opening for noteworthy acts such as The Frights, (Epitaph) as well as minor touring.
After establishing a dedicated fanbase, the two moved to Los Angeles, where they would meet keyboardist Tyler DeCastro, and bass player Adam Gardner. Their lead single "girl in blue" was released on June 20th, 2019, and quickly made its way onto renowned alternative stations such as idobi radio and KROQ "Locals Only", even snagging the #5 spot for multiple weeks in a row and gaining over 1.3 million streams on Spotify alone.
The immediate success allowed Animal Sun to begin playing to packed rooms all over, including the legendary Troubadour. While quietly putting together their debut album ‘echoes of a dream’ to be released June 11th, 2021; the band released the singles ‘every word’, 'touch', and 'more than a friend'.
The tracks were well-received, being featured in award-winning, music magazines such as Alt Press and American Songwriter, holding the #2 spot on KROQ's Locals Only for multiple weeks in a row, and generating hundreds of thousands of listeners around the world. Animal Sun’s debut album ‘echoes of a dream’ is out NOW.
