EXCLUSIVE: SunSquabi Shares Fiery New Single, “Caterpillar”

first_imgOver the past few years, SunSquabi has been blowing up, earning a name for themselves as one of the premier acts in the live electronic music scene. The trio is one of the biggest up-and-coming bands right now, earning a legion of fans across the country for their tight-laced live performances and boundary-pushing electro-funk sound. Synthesizing classical funk, jazz, and electro into a pioneering new take on the genre, SunSquabi has created a standout, groove-heavy, and dynamic sound with mass crossover appeal, and the band is certainly reaping the rewards of this hard work.After touring heavily in 2017, SunSquabi truly cemented itself as a band on the rise, consistently rising on the lineups for renowned festivals like Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Summer Camp, and others and touring with the livetronica titans of STS9. Composed of Kevin Donohue (guitars/keys/production), Chris Anderson (drums), and Josh Fairman (bass/synth), currently, SunSquabi is gearing up for their triumphant return to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, which the trio will co-headline with Opiuo and the twenty-piece Syzygy Orchestra this weekend on April 21st. On the heels of the band’s sold-out first headlining show at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium in the fall, the group’s upcoming Red Rocks performance marks the band’s fifth appearance at the famed outdoor venue.In anticipation of this hallmark Red Rocks show, today, SunSquabi has released a brand-new track called “Caterpillar”, which features Chris Anderson’s younger brother, Spencer Anderson, on violin. “Collaborating and writing with family is so special,” the SunSquabi drummer shared with us ahead of this new release.Following the release of “Just A Little” in November, the song marks the second single from the band since the release of the band’s sophomore EP, Deluxe, which came out a year ago in April. “Caterpillar” is the first in a three-part series, meaning that fans can expect new tunes on the way. For these new tracks, the group delved deep and focused on biology and evolution as inspiration the series’ writing process. As Kevin Donohue shared, “The metamorphosis becomes more evident as the other two stages are revealed. It’s been a really fun process to work on. Especially because we are bridging the other stages (yet to be released) together.”You can take a listen to the Live For Live Music premiere of SunSquabi’s “Caterpillar” below before it’s released officially tomorrow.
