Southern California rock band Bad Suns formed in 2012 and in the short time since inception, have managed to bemusicallybeyond their years. Made up of Christo Bowman (vocals), Gavin Bennett (bass), Miles Morris (drums) and Ray Libby(guitar)the four piece ranges from ages 19-22 yet has a sound reminiscent of rock stalwarts from generations past. “I grew upwitha lot of world music playing in the house. When I was 10, I started getting heavily interested in the guitar, and my dadbeganintroducing me to his records from the 70’s and the 80’s. Initially Elvis Costello, then to The Clash, The Cure, and soon,”notes Christo. “All of these artists and bands had a big impact on me, at a young age, as far as song composition goes.“Influences are apparent on the band’s upcoming EP Transpose, where angst-ridden riffs and ethereal yet charismatic vocalspaytribute to post-punk legends of the early 80’s. “ I started writing my first songs at that time,” Christo continues, “Thoughwe cannow reflect on that era of music, those artists were ahead of their time in a lot of ways. That’s what’s mostinspiring.” Transpose was recorded in the studio with producer Eric Palmquist (The Mars Volta, Wavves, Trash Talk) and serves as apreludeto the band’s debut full-length slated for 2014. “The writing and recording process is always exciting, because it’sconstantlychanging and unique to each song. Inspiration comes and goes as it pleases, so a night when a song gets writtenis a very goodnight,” says Christo. Comprised of four tracks, Transpose flows effortlessly from start to finish showcasing theband’s stadiumready anthems and undeniably catchy hooks. “Music has the ability to evoke certain feelings in people, a waythat not much elsecan. The pairing of words and sounds can be an extremely powerful tool, when done right. I think theultimate goal for this bandis to make music that causes people to really feel something.” Aside from writing a record, Bad Suns’ 2013 was a busy one, complete with multiple CMJ showcases as well as sharing thestagewith the likes of The 1975 and Vaccines with no signs of slowing down any time soon. Transpose will be releasedeverywhere inthe early months of 2014. Taken from: http://badsuns.tumblr.com/about « hide
