SONG PICK: Sunflower Thieves – Don’t Mind The Weather
“Don’t Mind The Weather” is a comforting allegory: no matter how the elements rage outside, there are stronger forces that can give you safety. Sunflower Thieves, the duo of Amy and Lily from Leeds, England tell their story with shimmering harmonies that give the song a heartwarming, summerly bliss. This may be the perfect song to get you over the first anniversary of the pandemic.
The band gives us some background:
“‘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.”
