Derbyshire-raised and Leeds-based pop-folk band, Sunflower Thieves, have returned with their new track ‘Don’t Mind The Weather’
Featuring the combination of their exquisite harmonies as well as their candid lyrics, which create a sense of sublime melancholy, throughout this extraordinary song, Sunflower Thieves take influence from the likes of Fenne Lily and Phoebe Bridgers, thus creating an ethereal sound.
‘Don’t Mind The Weather’ translates as “don’t worry, this is where you’re grounded and safe“, Sunflower Thieves explain. “The message conveyed is that no matter how the seasons change and weather may change, the gravitational pull of the moon – the person you feel safe with – will keep you grounded and safe.” The duo, Amy and Lily, based the lyrics on “the moon’s relationship with the tides, and the idea that it’s easy to get swept away in everything that’s going on, but there’s beauty in that, and the relationship with this person overcomes it all anyway.”
Sunflower Thieves were able to write and produce this beautiful song, in collaboration with fellow Leeds-based artist and friend Mehalah Ray. ‘Don’t Mind The Weather’ was originally an acoustic composition, but along with Lily’s magical touch in production, it blossomed into an ethereal track that will, no doubt bless your ears.
