At over 50k streams on Spotify, 80’s Punk Single Mental Zoo by Sarah Sunday hits a streaming milestone.
Since the songs first release on AVA Live Radio, we saw a cult like following start to gather around the single.
Mental Zoo offers a playful edge with brilliant vocal hooks, pulsating downbeats and tempo flows with that Punk Rock/New Wave core, rounding out perfectly. This single is part of a collaboration between Sarah Sunday and Producer Mbj.
This song is the sound and style of PUNK Rock/New Wave that ruled the airwaves in the ’80s joins this Retro Vibe Revival with the vocal prowess of SARAH SUNDAY! The track title, Mental Zoo really puts a spotlight on Anxiety and Depression issues that are all too common, we tried to write a song which shows these Mental issues can be solved, kind of has a happy ending! Let’s run away….on a bright Sunday, we both are familiar with these issues….and wanted a happy sounding song about a dark issue…
I got started about two years ago officially, I always wanted to start a band back in my early years and one day while I was working at my day job, Producer MBJ, out of nowhere approached me to work on a project, for some reason I did not hesitate, I jumped in full force! Yes, I said, Yes in a second! It was surreal…
Both of our (Producer MBJ & Sarah Sunday) influences are really many bands from the ’80s. Mbj had a successful electronic band named ISH then. We loved the same bands, The Smith, Blondie, Joy Division and our music is a combo between Synth bands and Guitar bands. I would say in fairness I’m often associated with the styles of Avril Lavigne and Blondie!!!
