Animal Sun, made up of brothers Steven Blake and Will Alton, are bursting onto the indie music scene. Formed in 2015, the band was named after their close friend James Sun, who tragically passed away in 2011. Animal Sun’s debut EP, “Beginnings,” released in July of this year, showcases the band’s soulful sound, pulling inspiration from artists like The Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins and The 1975.
The guys are currently prepping to perform at the iconic Peppermint Club in West Hollywood, CA on October 26th. In other exciting news, Steven and Will were recently notified that they are on the official ballot for the Grammy Awards for the following categories: Song of The Year – “Girl in Blue,” Record of The Year – “Girl in Blue,” & Best Pop Duo or Group Performance – Animal Sun, “Girl in Blue.”
I caught up with lead singer Steven Blake and chatted with him about their first music video, their fans, working with Grammy award-winning engineer Robert Margouleff, and more.
