Abbiamo scoperto gli Sleepy Sun, ottima band Americana.
Vengono da San Francisco.
Un sound affascinante che si mescola con un blues intrigante.
Ecco una breve intervista per Roba da Rocker :)
when the band was founded?
Santa Cruz, CA. year 2008
What's the reason why you started playing?
we made friends with each other before we started playing music together. our music grew out of the respect we gained for each other as individuals and friends.
Why did you choose this name?
the name was derived from a Song titled, "sleepy son," written about a near fatal experience of drifting into the unconscious. the band, originally called Mania, needed a new name to fit the sound of our newly found music.
What are the bands you take inspiration from?
the list is huge and growing.. some of the more well known and obvious bands: Sabbath, Neil, beach boys, spiritualized, pink floyd. we are also inspired by our contemporaries and our friends: Lumerians, Place to bury strangers, oh sees, earthless, howlin rain... although it seems to change from record to record. everyone in the band has a pretty different favorites/inspirations, thats what makes our music especially eclectic i believe.
What are your greatest influences?
the pacific coast, dreams, language, redwood forests, smells, foreign cultures, darqness, sex, doorways, heavy weights, highways, BBQ, master Udi, professors, scientists and preachers, and water, lots of water.
How important is the blues in your music?
blues seems to be the root of most of our songs, however its importance lies more in the challenge of reinterpreting the blues with as much originality as we know.
Are you working on new material at the moment?
always. we just completed a new album earlier this year. release date soon to be announced.
how important is musical experimentation?
it is the ultimate. it is essence of creativity, and so it essential for the creator to experiment with his/her craft. "if you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything."
An adjective to describe you?
