SUNFLOWER Release Debut Single 'Better Days'

SUNFLOWER Release Debut Single ‘Better Days’
Georgia Kearins

With the dawn of a new decade comes a collaboration of brilliant musical forces, SUNFLOWER.

These guys have ultimately blown away festival-goers after the dynamic lead singers Kahlia Furguson (fka.The Fergies) and Lawson Doyle (fka. Port Royal) were drawn together at Bluesfest 2019 as showcasing artists on the Delta Stage. Since then, their band SUNFLOWER have become a force to be reckoned with their debut single, ‘Better Days’, which was chosen as their debut for its hopeful and timeless message.

SUNFLOWER​ carries heavy influence from the prowess, expressionism and freedom of legendary rock outfits ​Oasis​, The Killers, ​Fleetwood Mac​, Coldplay, ​The Rolling Stones​, Joni Mitchell and The Doors. Their music is a well-crafted fusion of the eclectic tones and grooves of the ’60s & ’70s, enveloped by their ​modern energy​, hard-hitting lyricism​ and not to mention their killer fashion sense.

With a fresh grasp on the concept of hope, SUNFLOWER are a bold and empowering contrast to certain counterparts of popular music today.

Willow Keith (bassist and co-writer) tells us more about the sentiment of their new track: “There’s something about a hopeful song that connects deeper and while this year has been a strange and turbulent one so far, I still feel very hopeful for what the future still has in store. I’m excited to be releasing this song and can only hope it resonates with you as much as it does with us.”

Lawson Doyle (lead vocalist and co-writer) adds: “The whole sentiment of the song is about letting go of your baggage and believing things are getting better. It’s meant to make you feel human and alive.”

With the changing times comes a re-imagining of modern music and its interconnection with society, culture and human nature. ‘Better Days’ comes as a timely reminder to have faith in each other and what the future holds, as we all look forward to a time where we can relish and celebrate music collectively once again.

SUNFLOWER’s debut track will be officially released on 14 May, 2020. You can pre-save the song on Spotify and iTunes here!
