Los Angeles-based band Bad Suns have shared another b-side from their latest release Mystic Truth.
“’Unstable’ came to be, following a stormy night spent in a cabin on the east coast, where I was writing songs for the Mystic Truth album,” explains vocalist Christo Bowman. “Walking through the neighborhoods of Bridgehampton the next day, as the fog rolled in from the ocean, I got the sense that this would be the perfect locale for a murder mystery. I felt inspired to write a song from the perspective of a psychopath, so that’s exactly what I did.”
Mystic Truth, produced by Dave Sardy (Oasis, The Black Angels), came to life during fits of inspiration in a variety of locales: a mid-century geodesic dome on a wind farm, a barn in Bridgehampton, the streets of Hong Kong, and the living room of the house all four members shared in the LA suburbs. The result is a collection that gathers disparate influences — from artist Bruce Nauman and magical realist author Mikhail Bulgakov to Eno-era U2 and The Blue Nile — into a potent, expansive whole.
