“Float in Circles” By Sunnsetter
Sunnsetter is the project of Andrew McLeod, the multi-artist recently announced his new album will drop in 2023 via Paper Bag Records. The lead single, “Float in Circles,” is a track that sonically and thematically represents much of their hard fought, over three year journey to find peace and their place amid struggles with sobriety, mental health, concepts around gender identity, and dealing with the sudden and tragic loss of their close friend and bandmate. “Float in Circles” explores the guilt and grief tightly woven into the experience. “This is simply the best that I can be, through song, and the need to share that feeling with the world is extremely overwhelming,” says McLeod. This new single and new album follows The love you withhold is the pain you carry (2020) and All watched over by machines of loving grace (2022).
Outside of Sunnsetter, McLeod is a contributor to twice Polaris nominated and shortlisted ZOON, headed by Daniel Monkman, and Ombiigizi, a collaboration between Monkman and Adam Sturgeon of Status/Non-Status. As a multi-disciplinary artist, single-handedly mastering all elements of their music-making (and additionally handles their own photography, visuals, creative and more) Andrew works primarily from an idyllic home studio in rural Norfolk County.
McLeod reflects on the musical and personal journey to date, their lost friend always top of mind. “I needed to recognize for myself that I can find a way to live beyond that grief and self-inflicted guilt. Find ways to hold myself accountable, change what I could for the better of myself and the people I love. This is what they would have encouraged me to do.”
