Music Submission, Animal Sun

Artist or Band Name: 
Animal Sun

Fresh off their new alternative/rock/pop, studio-recorded, EP, Beginnings (released in July 2019), Animal Sun is eager to spread their love of music to people that value new beginnings with a positive mindset to live their life to the fullest. Their EP features tracks that were written solely by the band themselves and produced by Aaron Zepeda and Robert Margouleff. The two producers have worked with Stevie Wonder, Travis Scott, and Quincy Jones to name a few. Their hit single, “Girl in Blue,” has reached over 11,000+ streams on Spotify within less than two months, making this an exciting “beginning” for the group. 

ANIMAL SUN: Formed in 2015 and is led by two brothers; lead singer/songwriter, Steven Blake Alton and drummer/back-up vocalist, Will Alton. Born and raised in Virginia, the brothers chose to name their band, Animal Sun, as a dedication to their late childhood friend, James Sun, whose life was tragically cut short in 2011. Drawing from their devastation, they realized life was too short and ultimately wanted to change the world for the better through their powerful music. It wasn’t long until they began performing in front of packed audiences from college parties to house shows to filling up venues on the West Coast. Due to their huge success in their hometown, they decided to make the move to Los Angeles, CA to pursue music full time. Since relocating to LA, the band has successfully studio-recorded and released their EP, Beginnings as well as booking numerous gigs. The four tracks on the EP include: Explode, Soul on Fire, Girl in Blue, and Homesick. 

Animal Sun will be releasing their highly anticipated music video to “Girl in Blue” this week on their YouTube and Instagram accounts. In September, they will be playing at the famous, Viper Room on Sunset Strip and they hope to continue to play at well-known venues throughout California.
