Sunflower Thieves’ latest is something special. Trance inducing dream-pop for a sunny day, ‘Don’t Mind The Weather’ is pandemic-proof euphoria.
Listening to Sunflower Thieves is like floating on air. The sunny melodies, cloud-like mesh of atmospherics and blue sky acoustic strum just sort of let you, float away. It’s a beautifully chilled serene experience. Where so many young bands opt for intensity the Leeds based duo go for feeling, and emotion too, but emotion twice-removed. There are no heart-on-sleeve theatrics, no extremes of love or agony. Instead pure abstraction: detached, washed out, lovingly rendered folk.
These two play like Haim on morphine. Reassured, honey-hued pop with airy vocals and seamless harmonies. In a cluttered, loud, brash, click-minded indie landscape, ‘Don’t Mind The Weather’ is like a tonic. It’s a simple progression but works so well, gently adding texture and colour as the track progresses.
Sunflower Thieves are so easy to like. We can’t wait to hear more.
