With the weather warming I feel like it’s time to get the ball rolling on some spring/summer tunes. Don’t you? Of course you do!
Ironically, this sunny track (first brought to my attention by the wonderful RPB) comes from Sin Fang, who are from – wait for it – Iceland. Originally dubbed Sin Fang Bous – Sin Fang is the solo project of Seabear‘s Sindri Már Sigfússon (say that five times fast, or even say it at all). Sunbeam, off the 2013 release Flowers, is like a layer-cake of sounds. It moves quickly and frivilously, as one might while frolickling along the beach. It’s fun and easy to listen to, with a super catchy hook. Try not to start whistling along…seriously, you can’t.
If you enjoy this I seriously recommend checking out the whole album (it’s on Spotify to make things super easy) – while it’s not the most diverse thing in the world, it’s all fun and enjoyable, and will definitely get you in the mood for some serious sunshine.
Check out the band performing Sunbeam live from Seattle’s KEXP at a hostel in Iceland.
