Sunflower Thieves Release Ethereal New Single Don’t Mind The Weather Leeds based alt pop / folk group Sunflower Thieves have released a song well suited to head into Spring with on ethereal, harmony laden new track Don’t Mind The Weather.

Comprising of Derbyshire born songwriters Amy Illingworth and Lily Sturt-Bolshaw, the new track is the fourth single from the Leeds-based duo. Drawing inspiration from Fenne Lily and Phoebe Bridgers, the hazy shimmer of Don’t Mind The Weather calls to mind groundbreaking dream pop trio Cocteau Twins and Hounds of Love era Kate Bush.

Available on all streaming and download platforms now, the track is due for a physical release through cult label / publication Come Play With Me on 9th April as part of their singles club which showcases rising talent in the Leeds city region.

Created with fellow Leeds artist and friend Mehalah Ray, the band said of the cut, “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”. The accompanying visuals for the track are suitably bucolic, featuing the duo filmed out in the Yorkshire countryside.
