Sleepy Sun

Sleepy Sun is a California band from many Californias. They hail from the rolling oak and sage hills of Sierra Gold Country, TheSan Francisco Peninsula, where Kesey raged and the Dead were once Warlocks, and the forever-sunshine climes of theSouthland. They came together—young and garage strutting in the coastal Northern California crucible of Santa Cruz. Andthere they birthed the Sleepy sound—dead blues shaken alive, razor sharp and ramblin’, soul, sonic science and dead-on popsurgery.

Sleepy Sun is a California band from many Californias. They hail from the rolling oak and sage hills of Sierra Gold Country, TheSan Francisco Peninsula, where Kesey raged and the Dead were once Warlocks, and the forever-sunshine climes of theSouthland. They came together—young and garage strutting in the coastal Northern California crucible of Santa Cruz. Andthere they birthed the Sleepy sound—dead blues shaken alive, razor sharp and ramblin’, soul, sonic science and dead-on popsurgery. Wooden, earthy, stratospheric, and swinging…California music of beautiful contrasts for conflicted times.

Now, two records into a frighteningly fast-blossoming evolution, Sleepy Sun are a living machine of fire and focus. Their firstrelease on ATP records Embrace illuminated the golden path to Sleepy land—hard-riffing, delicate, dreamy and cultivated. Thelatest ATP release, Fever, is arrival at the palace the path promised.

Fever is the honey harmonies and danger wailing of Bret Constantino and Rachel Williams pulled from a tender tangle intosteel-strong braid; the wing-on-wing guitars of Matt Holliman and Even Reiss in screaming dives and sweet ascending circles;the lowdown served up tough and thundering from drum and bass authorities Brian Tice and Jack Allen.

Fever is a band working, like the heroic combos of old—real, made by hand, eyes ahead on an unbridled future and giving twoshits for the sideways glance of the lurking trend spotter.
