Colorado-based hydro-funk trio Sunsquabi (check out our 2017 Q&A with Kevin) will release their latest full-length album Instinct on Friday, January 11th. Led by a three-track series of singles “Caterpiller,” “Chrysalis,” and “Night Moth,” the LP finds the band at their highest peak as they have been dedicated to the metamorphosis of capturing elements in their live performances in the studio as improvisational jams have been fleshed out into full-blown songs and staples in their repertoire.
Instinct is a biological-themed journey of evolution. With the addition of Josh Fairman (bass/syntbass) last year and new levels of compositional prowess and sound design, it is evident that the group is dedicated to forward trajectory and experimentation.
Each song’s namesake inspired by a creature or biological element is a reflection of every track taking on a distinct life of its own. In addition to Kevin Donohue (Guitar/Production), Josh Fairman (Bass/Synth Bass), and Chris Anderson (Drums), the album also features Nick Gerlach on saxophone (“Pangolin”), Spencer Anderson on Violin (“Chrysalis”), Chris Karns (Pretty Lights) on Turntables, Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident) on percussion.
Don’t miss Sunsquabi’s headlining performance at The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver with support from Too Many Zooz, The Hip Abduction, Chris Karns, and Nobide on January 26, 2019. Get your tickets here.
