“...a sonic melee that includes preposterously monstrous riffage” – The Line Of Best Fit
“With lighters held aloft, ‘Wild Machines’’s prog odyssey could prove an epic festival closer” – Loud and Quiet
Sleepy Sun is a California band from many Californias. They hail from the rolling oak and sage hills of Sierra Gold Country, The San Francisco Peninsula, where Kesey raged and the Dead were once Warlocks, and the forever-sunshine climes of the Southland. They came together—young and garage strutting in the coastal Northern California crucible of Santa Cruz. And there they birthed the Sleepy sound—dead blues shaken alive, razor sharp and ramblin’, soul, sonic science and dead-on pop surgery. Wooden, earthy, stratospheric, and swinging... California music of beautiful contrasts for conflicted times.
