Legal Free: Various Tracks by Auckland Soundscaper Sun Blood

Screen Shot 2015-08-03 at 5.38.06 PMSun Blood (or SUN BLOOD or sun blood) is Auckland, NZ soundscaper Ben Leonard. Sun Blood weaves spacial textures over electronic percussion that satisfies the listener’s more organic needs. Although Sun Blood seems to lack a prolific online presence, Ben’s focus is on quality not quantity. Below are a few tracks to get you abreast of his rising talent.

“Nothing New” is the first single off of Sun Blood’s upcoming Careless EP. It’s predominantly brooding and as far as your speakers go… it’s murderous… with the unapologetically harsh kick sample cutting through. The vocal chimes in with a Noah Lennox (Panda Bear) feel but even more inaudible than what’s expected from Animal Collective. Download the track here.



The next two tracks “Say So” and “Chachacha2” have their own personalities – “Say So” will satiate any daydream with it’s whimsical, pillowy palate – “Chachacha2” carries a steady rhythm with a slightly romantic undertone. Download “Say So” here. 


“Chachacha2” doesn’t seem atypical of what Sun Blood is going for but overall it remains relaxing and totally transforms when the tasteful and robust saxophone takes control. Download “Chachacha2” here.
