Sunflower Bean released their King of Dudes EP in 2019, as a follow-up to their Twentytwo in Blue album in 2018. “Moment in the Sun” is their first new music for 2020 and it is an indie pop song with a wonderful message.
“‘Moment In The Sun’ is about finally recognizing what is important in one’s life, the people you decide to spend it with,” Sunflower Bean explains of the track. “All of these things we distract ourselves with, the neverending mountain of career climbing, the pursuit of financial success, and the hope that after all that trying you could finally be cool. All of that is meaningless in comparison to one great day, hour, or moment with someone you really love.”
The band further explains of the video: “While quarantining together upstate this summer we decided to make a music video for ‘Moment In The Sun.’ We thought the best way to visually represent the meaning of the song, while also taking inspiration from this isolating time everyone has been forced to live in, was to create two separate worlds. One world which exists totally inside a home, mostly in a lonely bedroom. The other world exists completely outside in the sun and is made up of memories of a summer love. We invited Marquis Rodriguez, who is one of Julia’s best friends since high school and also an incredibly talented actor, to co-star in the video. He was crucial in helping us tell the story of summer love and show those potent memories of tenderness coming to life. While living alone, the character Julia is portraying becomes flooded with memories and moments from the past summer, and as a result her bedroom starts to transform into the outdoor world. We built up the entire bedroom using real sod and flowers. Her memories are brought to life, just like the room.”
Liza Owen released her single “Why Aren’t We Having Sex?” earlier this year. Today she releases “Getting Good” a song she wrote with Julian Bunetta, Shungudzo, John Ryan, Andrew Haas, and Ian Franzino.
“This song is really about self destruction and recognising that sometimes we’re all a bit lost,” says Liza. “It’s kind of a dark song, but there’s also a weird sense of empowerment in just owning that darker side of yourself and all your floors.”
“Meeting Nadia was kismet,” says Melanie. “I’d seen her on Kathy Burke’s documentary series on women and fallen in love with her attitude. As female artists, we have to be fearless. I love this girl.” Commenting on the collaboration for the first time today, Nadia likewise says: “It’s no secret that I’m a super Spice Girls fan so this whole experience has been very surreal. Melanie C is an incredible human being; creating with her has been nothing short of perfect. Feel-good song that makes you feel-GREAT!”
Leah Belle Faser is releasing her debut EP, Crossing Hermi’s Bridge on October 16. Faser, at 16, seeks a place among country artists from Swift to Cline.
“At my age, I don’t have as much life experience as other writers. I have to write about what I know whether it is an experience I’ve actually had in the past or a fear I have about the future,” she explains. “I write about simple things in a simple way, that allows room for listeners to reflect on their own life experiences.”
The EP’s title, Crossing Hermi’s Bridge refers to a bridge in Faser’s hometown named after Hermione Alexander, a civil rights and social justice activist who died in 1983. “The plaque on the bridge reads ‘She built bridges across gulfs of prejudice and ignorance’ and that is something that I hope to do in my life through music or in whatever way I can.”
The first single is “Better Than Mine.” It is a playful take on parting words on a relationship and having them reversed.
