Danny Blueberry is back with new single, “Space Guppies”

Danny Blueberry Dives Into His Archives to Fish Out a Tune Treasure with “Space Guppies”

Montreal, QC-based singer-songwriter, guitarist, and storyteller, Danny Blueberry has unveiled a new single, “Space Guppies”, along with a video to accompany the release.

A trippy, rockin’ dive into the deep waters of Blueberry’s fervent imagination, “Space Guppies” has the perfect sing-along-able chorus that conjures up images of packed clubs of pogo-sticking fans shouting “Ahhhhhh – space! Ahhhhh- guppies!” while Blueberry and his band rock it out on stage.

“This is one of the first songs I wrote,” says Blueberry. “I was about 17 years old and I had a small aquarium in my room.”

Which sounds perfectly standard, until Blueberry’s highly creative mind added a wild new dimension.

“I noticed that the guppies were surreal and had a certain grace and elegance to them that I did not see in the other fish,” he recalls. “I imagined that they came from outer space and were eventually going to invade earth in great numbers.”

“Space Guppies’” chugging acoustic guitar and ethereal slide riffs playfully complement each other until the distortion kicks in on the chorus and those menacing, otherworldly guppies start closing in on you.

Blueberry is a master storyteller with decades of experience who has written over 70 songs since those days with his aquarium. While spending time in Taiwan In 2021, Blueberry met Mike McLaughlin and Chuck Payne, two American musicians also based there. The trio hit it off and spent eight months recording 28 of Blueberry’s original songs that he’s written throughout his four decades as a musician.

“These songs are now being released monthly,” Blueberry explains. “Each with a video and each will be part of a collection called The Opium Year.”

In the three months prior to the “Space Guppies” release, Blueberry also launched singles and videos for “Someone Who Would Have Your Back (Winshields), ”Mirage” and ”Batman and Robin”. All four singles dropped so far from The Opium Year have amassed an amazing 1.5 million streams on Spotify since the start of 2022.
