Bad Suns is an American alternative rock band that formed in 2012. The bands lineup consists of Christo Bowman, Gavin Bennett, Miles Kottak and Ray Libby, whom are all mostly from Los Angeles, California. They recently signed to Vargant Records, where they released their debut album, Language & Perspective.
Bowman stated that he, “grew up with a lot of world music playing in the house. When I was 10, I started getting heavily interested in the guitar, and my dad began introducing me to his records from the 70’s and the 80’s. Initially Elvis Costello, then to The Clash, The Cure, and so on…All of these artists and bands had a big impact on me, at a young age, as far as song composition goes.” Their first EP Transpose demonstrates the influential sound they have adapted from post-punk of the early 80’s.
Transpose served as a prelude to the band’s debut full-length album. Christo stated, “the writing and recording process is always exciting, because it’s constantly changing and unique to each song. Inspiration comes and goes as it pleases, so a night when a song gets written is a very good night.”
