“See me creeping on the other side,” chants Steven Blake. His voice is like a lion unleashed from its cage, tearing through the melody. “Safe Not Sound” is prime Animal Sun. It vibrates with percussion so fierce it drives right into the back of your head, and a myriad of other instruments seem to send off their own little sparks, shiny and mesmeric. “You don’t have to notice me for now ‘cause I keep coming ‘round,” he careens out of control.
