LISTEN: Sunflower Thieves - 'Don't Mind The Weather'

Adoring this gorgeous new track from pop-folk duo Sunflower Thieves. Originally from Derbyshire and with over sixteen years of friendship under their belts, Lily & Amy moved to Leeds to pursue their musical ambitions. The project has since grown into a performing, writing and producing collective, and this latest offering is a stunner. Due to be released by Come Play With Me on 7" on 19th March, Don't Mind The Weather first began life as an acoustic composition, written alongside fellow Leeds artist Mehalah Ray in early 2020 in Lily's home studio. A little production here and there since... the result is beautiful and ethereal. I wouldn't expect anything less. 

On the track, they share that "'Don't Mind The Weather' translates as 'don't worry, this is where you're grounded and safe', a tale of wanting to make the most of that feeling and stay inside. The message conveyed is that no matter how the seasons and weather may change, the gravitational pull of the moon - the person you feel safe with - will keep you grounded and safe. We based it 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 that there's beauty in that, and the relationship with this person overcomes it all anyway."
