“A song that moulds together swaying guitar melodies with rather quite enchanting vocals, deep with this emotional brightness that captures the group’s drive to share these meaningful bursts of indie-pop.” – Pilerats (AUS)
Brisbane-based indie-pop group Sunflower have just unveiled tour dates and their anthemic new single Thin Skin – produced and mixed by bassist Sam Woods at the band’s Brisbane-based home studios.
Continuing on their path to inspire hope and meaning in this confusing world, Thin Skin is a sanguine side-step from their previous feel-good singles and offers an unseen vulnerability to their empowering song writing. The illuminating warmth of the grand piano enveloped by an intrinsic blend of rock and orchestra marks this a significant point of sonic development for the band.
Co-vocalist / co-songwriter Kahlia Ferguson describes the motivation behind Thin Skin:
“Thin Skin” is about accepting that life is going to deal you difficult cards sometimes, and letting go of anything that doesn’t add value to your life is one way you can beat the darkness. You can be your own worst enemy if you let the difficulties of life tear away at you. We only get one life, might as well learn to love it.”
To coincide with the release, the band will play at Crafted Beer & Cider Festival on the Gold Coast, Lords Mayor’s Christmas Carols in Brisbane (televised on Channel 9), The Northern, Byron Bay and Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, Brisbane. This continues on from recent performances at Yonder Festival in Imbil, Valley Fiesta, Brisbane and a sold-out headlining show at Black Bear Lodge.
Previous singles Better Days and Get Yourself Together were widely embraced by the likes of triple j, triple j Unearthed, Amazing Radio (UK) and a slew of community radio stations. The tracks also received support from blogs Atwood Magazine (USA), Classic Rock Magazine (UK), The Music, Beat Magazine, and TV outlets MTV and ABC’s Rage.
In the coming weeks Sunflower will reveal an accompanying music video for Thin Skin.
