Collect all your thoughts & fall into the lush dreamscape of Sunflower Thieves. ‘I Don’t Know Why‘, the newest single from the Leeds-based folk-pop outfit, offers a respite from the desolate cold, or, relatively, a warm embrace of the sun.
Emanating a floating-on-the-lake atmosphere, the graceful melody & serene harmonies conjure up a memory of summer vacations from a simpler time. Compositionally acoustic & respectfully pop-minded, there is an honest sentimentality that strikes the heart & replenishes the soul. Listeners are left captivated & elegantly wistful for a nostalgia that exists somewhere within themselves; a memory of easier days, & the realization of its reflection on the moment. As pursuits of connectivity run deep, each of us remain on our greater mission for that interpersonal relation – but will we lose ourselves when we reach our destination?
This is some splendid songwriting, featuring an absolutely terrific arrangement & top-tier performances. With a fantastic catalog, do yourself the favor of diving deeper into the world of Sunflower Thieves:
