Sunsquabi, the cosmic Denver-based trio that meshes elements of jam and electronic music, has released a new single, “Chrysalis”, in anticipation of their forthcoming studio album. “Chrysalis” is the second stage in a three-part Metamorphosis series, originating with the tune “Caterpillar”. During the band’s songwriting process, the three musicians focused in on biology and evolution as overlying themes for inspiration during their writing process. Sunsquabi’s approach to writing music and recording has changed recently with the addition of Josh Fairman (bass/synth) into the band, and the metamorphosis between “Caterpillar”, “Chrysalis”, and “Night Moth” are symbolic of the trio’s change.
Bassist Josh Fairman commented, “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.” Guitarist Kevin Donohue added, “The metamorphosis becomes more evident as these stages are revealed. It’s been a really fun process to work on.”
Drummer Chris Anderson noted, regarding his brother joining as a special guest, “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.”
Stay tuned for a release of the band’s final stage of metamorphosis, “Night Moth”, and keep your eyes and ears open for an upcoming release date for Sunsquabi’s forthcoming studio album.
